The Greater Lowell Community Foundation, a staunch supporter of our mission and having already helped with the COVID-19 crisis, recently awarded yet another grant to the Megan House Foundation to help combat the challenges brought on by the pandemic.
The latest round of funding, the fifth since the onset of the Coronavirus crisis to assist with vulnerable populations, totals more than $436,000 and was distributed to 27 area nonprofit organizations to provide COVID-19 assistance. To date, nearly $2 million in grants have been distributed to 92 nonprofits serving Greater Lowell.
The Megan House Foundation will use the latest funding to help provide food, sanitation supplies and hygiene products for the residnets of Megan’s House and Erin’s House.
The GLCF, founded in 1997, is a philanthropic organization comprised of over 350 funds, currently totaling over $40MM, which is dedicated to improving the quality of life in 20 neighboring cities and towns. The Community Foundation annually awards grants and scholarships to hundreds of worthy nonprofits and students. It is powered by the winning combination of donor-directed giving, personal attention from its staff, and an in-depth understanding of local needs. The generosity of our donors has enabled GLCF to award more than $20 million to the Greater Lowell community.
We at the Megan House Foundation are extremely grateful for the continued support of the GLCF, which dates back to our inception. Their generosity has been an integral part of our success and has made a difference in the lives of hundreds of young women in recovery through our programs.
