Foundation opposes HB 1431

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation believes that HB 1431, if passed, would prove detrimental to the health and safety of some of our most vulnerable children.

Foundation opposes bill that threatens resident-owned communities

Since 1984, the Charitable Foundation has invested in the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund to help residents of manufactured home parks organize, buy, and manage their communities as cooperatives.

Foundation urges repeal and replacement of “banned concepts” law

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation stands firmly behind the belief that all of our children deserve an education that promotes their development and critical thinking skills and offers them practical tools for their future. As such, we urge the legislature to pass SB304 to repeal and replace the provisions adopted in last year’s budget bill, HB2. The current law makes it difficult for our children to receive the complete education they deserve to help them thrive in communities and civic life.
