Mission

The McCarthy Family Foundation Charity Fund was established in 1956. The trustees have a preference for organizations and programs focusing in the areas of education, food, health and housing & shelter programs.

Guidelines

The McCarthy Family Foundation has biannual deadlines of March 31 and September 30. The decision making meetings are held in June and December.

Preference will be given to agencies operating North of Boston, east of Route 93 to the ocean and South of the New Hampshire border. Focus may be emphasized, but not limited to, the communities of Lynn, Salem, Beverly, Peabody, Gloucester, Ipswich, Newburyport, and Salisbury.

Requests for general operating and program support will be considered, as will requests for specific program-enabling capital improvements. Grants may be subject to matching obligations and payable over multiple years. On very rare occasions, the trustees will consider needs for emergency grants.

Site visits may be conducted prior to decision making meetings. Prior grantees must submit a one-page expenditure report prior to any subsequent grant being considered.

Bank of America acts as co-trustee for the McCarthy Family Foundation Charity Fund in conjunction with Elton McCausland, Claudia Luck and David Moran, Esq.
