Need Funding for your Community? Read on!

Dear New England Activists,

The New England Grassroots Environment Fund sent this along and I wanted to make sure that people through out the area were aware of this great source of funds. If schools, parks or other parts of your community have suffered from the effects of budget cuts or other related ills, please read on. 


The "Jenny Jones Foundation" will give $1,000,000 for worthy causes around the United States. All grants are considered investments in communities.

Jenny's Heroes is looking for specific ideas where the Foundation can purchase, repair, upgrade, provide equipment, or otherwise make improvements to benefit the community.

Any legal resident of the United States over the age of 18 can apply to receive a grant, without regard to race, religion, national origin, color, sex, veteran status, or disability. No recipient may keep any of the funds for his or her personal use; all funds must be spent on the approved community project that benefits a number of people.

The total cost of the project cannot exceed $25,000.

Grant requests will be reviewed within a month of receipt. Applicants who are being considered will be notified within six weeks of receipt. Full proposals will be requested from those whose projects may be funded.

Again, this was sent to me by the New England Grassroots Environment Fund, please see their site at:

Thanks and good luck,
