Our Mission Grant Program Policy

The Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation is a general purpose charitable foundation which awards grants in the fields of arts and humanities, education, environment, health, human services, and public benefit. Grant support is allocated to Manchester and Amherst organizations based on the relative population size of the two communities. Approximately 90% is spent on Manchester projects and 10% in Amherst.

Operating support may be awarded in some cases. Generally, grants are provided for expenditure over a period of one year. Grants will not be made to eliminate previously incurred deficits.
