Four New Hampshire Nonprofits Receive Grants Through NHHEAF Network Organizations' Employee Charitable Giving Program

Concord, NH - On Tuesday, December 19, The NHHEAF Network Organizations’ NHHEAF Network Cares employee charitable giving program announced four New Hampshire nonprofit agencies are recipients of grants to be used to further support their work. Since the initiative’s inception in 2014, nearly 30 New Hampshire nonprofits have received grants through this initiative.

The four nonprofit agencies receiving grants are: Dover Teen Center (Dover), Granite State Dog Recovery (Manchester), New Hampshire Foundation for Teaching and Learning Children’s Fund (Concord), and Peppermint Ponies 4-H Club (Fremont).

Since 2014, NHHEAF Network employees have contributed or raised nearly $17,000 in monetary contributions which are distributed through the grant process or raised as part of fundraising for such events as Walk a Mile in Her Shoes and the Best Buddies Friendship Walk. In addition, they have collected over 6,650 pounds of food and performed nearly 1,900 hours of volunteer service to nonprofit agencies in New Hampshire.

"Our employees enjoy the opportunity to give so generously to other nonprofits in the state of New Hampshire," states Program Chair Bianca Holm. "Their commitment has made a difference – large or small – to over 50 nonprofits statewide since 2014."
