Deadline for the 2021 Bruce J Anderson Foundation funding opportunities

Don’t miss the Bruce J Anderson Foundation funding opportunity in the New Year! The foundation has helped many local organizations and initiatives annually. Good luck.

Bruce J Anderson Foundation 2020 grants were a who’s who of our community organizations and efforts in targeted areas of specialization: Arts (Cape Ann YMCA; Cape Ann Art Haven; GEF; Gloucester Stage Company); Environmental protection (Backyard Growers; Friends of Halibut State Park; Ocean Alliance); and Mental Health (Gloucester Writers Center; Pathways; Open Door). The family honors their brother and summer visits in Gloucester. The family foundation awarded grants to other communities and efforts, too.

Here’s the announcement from the TPI/Boston Foundation outreach for the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation:
