The Northern Neighbors Foundation will be participating in a match grant program offered by the Thomas Sill Foundation. Their President Jane Robillard explains if they can raise a minimum of 10 thousand dollars the Thomas Sill Foundation will match it two to one and they have 18 months to raise these funds to a max of 50 thousand dollars. She says they are asking the public to consider a donation to the Northern Neighbors Foundation and the Foundation provides a permanent source of funds to meet community and regional needs now and in the future.
Robillard adds Northern Neighbors would like community members to keep them in mind when they are preparing their estate or when leaving a donation for a family member or friend who has passed on.
Donations to the Northern Neighbors Foundation can be made at Northern Rainbows End on Main Street.
