About this funder:
Our Mission - Grant Program Policy
- arts and humanities,
- human services, and
- public/society benefit
Generally, at least two-thirds of available funds are awarded as grants for programs undertaken by nonprofit organizations and public agencies. The remaining one-third is allocated for capital needs, including acquisition of equipment and renovation or construction of facilities.
Short-term operating support may be provided to new organizations or for new program initiatives of established organizations. Generally, grants are provided for expenditure over a period of one year.
The Bean Foundation accepts requests for capital support. Contributions to capital campaigns will not exceed 3-4% of the total campaign goal. Exceptions have been made for organizations that serve low-income populations and have limited capacity for additional fundraising.
Priority consideration is given to projects which:
- extend services to individuals and groups that are not well provided for through current programs;
- develop service capacity that can be sustained in the future because it will attract other funding and/or generate revenue;
- promote cooperation and resource sharing among community organizations;
- improve the financial stability and managerial capacity of established organizations;
- help service agencies in Manchester and Amherst prepare for the future and help them effectively meet emerging community needs;
- are models with value for replication, or provide new approaches that have been successful elsewhere.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Applications are accepted from nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations and municipal and public agencies serving the communities of Manchester and Amherst, New Hampshire.

- Approximately 90% is spent on Manchester projects and 10% in Amherst.
