Mission

The John W. Boynton Fund was established in 1952 by Dora Carter Boynton in memory of her husband. In her will, Mrs. Boynton asked that "organizations which benefit poor, needy and deserving persons and particularly those of advanced years and gentility" be considered. She also expressed a desire that special consideration be given to charitable organizations serving the Town of Athol.

Guidelines

The application deadline for the John W. Boynton Fund is February 1. Applicants will be notified of decisions by June 30.

Primarily, funding is provided to programs or organizations serving the following:

  • Athol area residents
  • older adults in Massachusetts

Grant requests for new or special programs and capital projects are preferred. General operating support also will be considered. A typical grant is $10,000 (normal range is $10,000 - $25,000).
