2022 Grant Application
Each year the Grantham Garden Club (GGC) offers grants up to $500 in order to promote its mission and to support projects deemed to be of significant benefit to the Grantham community. Those eligible to apply for GGC grants are residents, employees, or representatives (including those on boards or committees) of Grantham or 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.
Proposed projects may involve horticulture, botany, landscape design, forestry, environmental science, land management or conservation, control of invasive plants, plant or soil conservation, pollinator preservation, protection or education regarding native trees, wildflowers, or birds, as well as other activities or projects within the scope of GGC’s mission. For example, candidates might propose to purchase teaching materials or supplies for educational walks or talks, build a garden, request contribution to a land preservation or conservation project, 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.
Grant recipients are required to provide a brief report to the GGC after the project or activity is completed and to submit receipts for costs incurred. Any unused portions of the grant award must be returned to the Grantham Garden Club.
Applications Accepted January to November
While not required, any signed letters of support should be sent directly to the Grant Committee.
Grant applications and letters of support may be submitted January 1st through November 30th and are considered throughout the year until the club’s allotted budget has been awarded. A notice will be posted on the GGC website when we are no longer accepting applications. Initial application reviews typically occur at the next review meeting held after an application is received.
