The Jessie B. Cox Charitable Trust makes grants in the six New England states in the fields of education, environment and health. Within these areas, the focus has narrowed:
- Education: early learning
- Environment: habitat conservation
- Health: access to health care
The Grants Committee meets twice per year to award grants, in May and October/November. As of 2011, the application process has been modified, with the grantmaking process initiated to a greater extent by program staff in coordination with the grants committee. The Trust’s program staff will retain an open-door policy for new requests, which will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Based on such review, the grants committee will invite specific proposals.
In an effort to be as clear as possible about the guidelines and to open up communications with potential grantees, we invite you to send us your questions to the attention of Katy Fyrberg, Foundation Assistant, at kfyrberg @ gmafoundations.com. Each question will receive an individualized response, and frequently asked questions will be posted on our web site.
