The Hope Fund
The purpose of The Hope Fund is to provide assistance for unmet needs of children in Greater Franklin County, Livermore and Livermore Falls, with a particular emphasis on removing barriers to enable low-income children to engage in a wide variety of enriching experiences in which they would not otherwise be able to participate.
Because the intent of The Hope Fund is to raise aspirations for area youth and expose young people to opportunities they may not otherwise engage in, support will be considered for a broad range of activities.
Both non-profits as well as individuals may apply.
This includes, but is not limited to: therapeutic recreation; athletic team participation; camps (including summer camps and those for special needs students); after school programs (i.e., in arts, robotics, etc.). Funding could be used for registration fees and/or for equipment or materials needed to participate.
For non-profits, these funds may only be used to finance the expressed services of this organization in accordance with The Hope Fund’s mission to provide for the unmet meets of children in the UWTVA region. It may not be used to provide private benefits (salaries, refreshments, entertainment etc.) for infrastructure, to satisfy operational costs or to support the organization’s promotional ventures.
What would be funded: A non-profit applies for funds to purchase new materials that will enhance the experience the children receive from that organization.
What would not be funded: A non-profit applies for funds to offset the cost of an activity that some parents typically pay for, but others cannot afford.
