The Marshall Home Fund provides two types of grants - Program Grants to organizations and Individual Grants to assist older Watertown residents in need. See the descriptions and guidelines for each below.
We annually award modest program grants to public agencies, private non-profits, and town departments serving adults 55 and older. The services and programs provided through grant funds must directly benefit Watertown residents.
Grant awards will be made to fund projects for a twelve (12) month period, which may begin at any time during the calendar year.
By awarding any particular grant, the Marshall Home Fund in no way implies that ongoing grants will be made for the same purpose, although recipients may reapply in the future.
If you are interested in applying for a 2018 program grant, we recommend you attend the Grant Information Session on February 8, 2018, 12:30-2:00 PM at the Watertown Public Library, 123 Main St, Watertown. (Snow date February 13). At the session, we will distribute--and highlight modifications to--the 2018 grant application and discuss our priorities for the coming year. A light lunch will be served. RSVP: info@MarshallHomeFund.org.
The 2018 Program Grant Application and Grant Guidelines will be posted here on February 9. The Program Grant application deadline is March 16, 2018. Awards will be distributed in May.
Marshall Home Fund provides financial assistance to individual Watertown residents, age 55 and older, who have an urgent need that cannot be met by family assets or through any other funding sources.
Individual assistance grants are given for a wide variety of needs, affecting the health and quality of life of recipients.
Requests for individual assistance must come through a public agency, town department, or private organization. The short individual grant application form may be submitted at any time on behalf of an individual Watertown resident age 55 or older.
