Grants to Local Non-Profits
How can my non-profit apply for a grant? Thank you for your interest in the RMHCENE grant program. After careful due diligence, we’ve decided to suspend the grants program as of Fall 2018 in order for us to focus on the merger with Ronald McDonald House of Providence. Together, we are shifting our focus to better serve an unmet need for housing critically ill children and their families in the Boston area. As we do so, we will ensure that our new organization has a strategic plan and vision which builds upon the strength of our existing organizations and aligns all programs moving forward with the mission of the merged organization.
We thank all of our community partners for the valuable work you do every day to improve the lives of our neighbors. We value your mission and the very important role you play in our community.
Please be assured we are steadfast in continuing our mission and to provide services to more families in medical crisis.
