Wow! Really, that is all we can say! You made our celebration of local nonprofits a great success – and submitted an incredible variety of organizations doing great things in Middlesex County.
We believe every gift, no matter the size, makes an impact in our community – and so do you. Several anonymous donors stepped forward to help us support the Pop Up Grant Initiative, and we can’t say thank you enough. Your generosity and commitment to helping our nonprofit community is humbling.
Throughout the summer, 292 individuals nominated 77 nonprofits for our pop-up grant drawings.
Thank you to all the friends and fans who nominated your favorite nonprofit organization. Your appreciation of the work they do is evident – and we know your support means a great deal to all of the nonprofits listed below and so many others in our community.
