Funding Partners

The Grassroots Fund is a 501(c)3 public charity funded by friends, family and foundations.
Please visit NEGEF’s donation page to learn more about how you can donate directly to Grassroots Fund.

The work of the grassroots would not be possible without the thousands of hours of time donated by hard working volunteers throughout New England. The support that we are able to give to these hard working volunteer groups would not be possible without the generous gifts of regional foundations and funding partners throughout our history.
