Young people more engaged in their communities. A small business launched that became the heart and hearth of a town. A teacher recognized for 40 years of dedication. A student on his way to a career in tech. More kids getting high-quality early childhood education that will help them grow into adults who sustain the region tomorrow. Elders and low-income residents getting access to critical legal services. Key sectors of the North Country economy getting a major boost.
Behind every grant made by the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund, there is a story. The 2017 Report to the Community tells just a few of them. The fund that was created 11 years ago through the generosity and dedication of Neil and Louise Tillotson granted out more than $3 million in 70 grants in 2017. The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is honored to steward the legacy of the Tillotsons, and to be able to help the North Country and surrounding regions to thrive.
