Thank you for your interest in applying for a mini-grant. The Lauren Dunne Astley Memorial Fund’s mission is to promote dynamic educational programs in three areas: the development of effective teen relationships & violence prevention, the arts, and community service.
We consider proposals from individuals and groups that support our mission. Overall, we look for two factors in proposals: potential capacity for dynamic impact and potential to showcase innovative and best practices in the field.
Preference will be given to new proposals and to projects working in Massachusetts. This year we will especially value initiatives that aim to work creatively to make a difference even in these socially-distant times. The amount requested must not exceed $2,000.
Application deadline is January 31, 2024. Decisions will be announced by February 15, 2024.
