Harold Whitworth Pierce Charitable Trust
The Trust offers grants primarily for projects that will produce long-range benefits by leveraging the Trustís resources. Grants are made in the following areas: education, green and public spaces, capital projects, research, and arts education. Education grants are awarded for training programs for teachers in urban schools, primarily in Boston; innovative programs for high achieving/highly motivated students primarily the Boston Public Schools; and grants made through EdVestors. Green and Public Spaces grants support projects that enhance open space for active and/or passive recreation; and those that support community gardens, community parks, and other natural areas. Capital projects grants support projects that reduce institutional operating costs and those which improve and/or restore Bostonís physical heritage. Research grants support environmental research on issues affecting New England and projects that make environmental research results available for public policy making. Occasionally the Trust makes grants for education in the arts. Priority is given for specific projects, for seed money, and for capital projects. Occasional grants are made for operating support. Grants are focused on the institutions and programs in the Boston area. Some additional can be found on the Web site.
