Since 1962, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has made grants, awarded scholarships and worked with partners to support New Hampshire’s young people and families.
Five years ago, the Foundation doubled down with a commitment to invest at least $100 million over 10 years to make bigger, lasting change. The work was organized into a single initiative called New Hampshire Tomorrow.
Investments have been to change systems, to combat inequities, to carve new pathways to opportunity.
Please read our fourth annual New Hampshire Tomorrow 2019 Progress Report to the community — and to the people whose generosity makes this work possible — for a look at investments and progress made in 2019.
