Concord, N.H. — NHHEAF Network Cares, the NHHEAF Network Organizations’ employee-led charitable giving program, presented a donation of $1,000 today to New Hampshire’s chapter of the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. This donation supports the Foundation’s mission to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to the children of military personnel killed in the line of duty.
In addition, three statewide New Hampshire nonprofit agencies received $200 mini-grants to support their efforts in working with the state’s residents. Organizations awarded a mini-grant include Project Linus New Hampshire, Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth, and Easter Seals of New Hampshire. Since the initiative’s inception in 2014, 45 New Hampshire nonprofits have received mini-grants through the program’s semi-annual grant process.
“On behalf of our 180 employees, the NHHEAF Network Cares committee is delighted to recognize these outstanding nonprofit agencies as they work to improve the lives of those in need,” states committee chair Bianca Holm. “Our generous and thoughtful employees enjoy participating in our various events and fundraising efforts as part of our charitable giving program.”
Since 2014, the Organizations’ team members have contributed and raised in excess of $32,000 in monetary donations which have been distributed through a semi-annual mini-grant process and periodic monetary designations to nearly 80 New Hampshire nonprofit agencies. Additionally, over 11,000 pounds of nonperishable food and supplies has been collected and distributed to nonprofit agencies statewide.
The NHHEAF Network Organizations are comprised of three active 501(c)(3) nonprofit agencies - New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF), Granite State Management & Resources (GSM&R), and New Hampshire Higher Education Loan Corporation (NHHELCO).
