Grant Applicant - applied in 2016
The staff at the Parker Foundation is very accessible and it's important that you contact them to talk about your proposal before applying. They will make time to chat with you and give you honest feedback about your ask and how it aligns with the foundation's priorities and ability to give in any particular quarter. Definitely, make the call! And they give for both program and capital. They don't tend to support the same program more than once unless significant expansion occurs. They are a supportive local foundation.

The Foundation specifically supports the Merrimack Valley, and they have made significant investments in the NPO infrastructure in this area. Many non-profits have been able to grow their organizations with Parker's help, and increase their impact in the area.
I really appreciate that their grant application process is totally online now!
They ask GREAT and specific questions at site visits, so be prepared!
