GRANT APPLICATION 2019
The Grantham Garden Club’s mission is to promote through education the love of gardening among amateurs; to promote the study of horticulture; to protect our native trees, wild flowers and birds; to encourage civic beautification, and to engage in activities which are charitable and educational, including without limitation, awarding grants or educational scholarships in furtherance of this mission.
Each year the Grantham Garden Club (GGC) offers grants up to $500 in order to promote its mission and for projects deemed to be of significant benefit to the Grantham community. Residents or employees of the town of Grantham, residents or employees of Eastman (regardless of town of residence), as well as individuals or representatives of a school, library, youth group, or community service organization undertaking educational or project-based activities in Grantham, may apply. Grant applications are considered on a monthly basis by the GGC Steering Committee on the first Friday of each month from January through November.
Areas of interest may include horticulture, botany, landscape design, forestry, environmental science, land management, control of invasive plants, plant or soil conservation, pollinator preservation, and related fields. For example, candidates might propose to purchase teaching materials, build a garden, bring in guest speakers, or attend gardening classes with the goal of sharing or using the knowledge gained in any such classes to help or educate others in the community.
Application forms are available on the Grantham Garden Club’s website at www.granthamgardenclub.org/grants.html, which is a subpage under the Scholarship & Grants tab.
