About this funder:



Frost Memorial Fund Grant

As founders, Benson and Barbara Frost created Frost Memorial Fund, Inc., for the long-term support of charitable organizations in Rhinebeck, NY. The Board of Directors has set policies designed to meet the founders' goals. The Board intends to support both well-established and new charities, so long as the purposes, operations and projects of those charities are in accordance with what it believes the founders would approve. The Board gives special weight to the Frosts' action in creating the Fund as a permanent endowment, rather than their simply making bequests in their wills to a group of named charities in Rhinebeck. So it is not only the present, but future, needs of Rhinebeck’s charitable organizations, and the community they serve, that the Board must keep in mind in setting out grant guidelines.

Grants for annual support and for new projects:

Annual support grants: FMF supports charities in the Village and Town of Rhinebeck, through limited annual cash support grants. In making an annual grant to a Rhinebeck charity, the Fund's directors do not intend to create a precedent on which a charity can expect to rely in future years.

New project grants: Proposals for grants for new projects (for example, sponsorship of lectures, concerts, plays, and other cultural programs or contribution to building of new facilities, etc.) will need to meet the following guidelines.
