Mary Gale Foundation grant opportunities available for non-profits serving women age 65 or older in financial need


MANCHESTER, NH –  The Mary Gale Foundation has launched its 2024 Request for Proposals, an open request for nonprofits in the Greater Manchester region to apply for funding. This application process will run through February 2, 2024.

The Mary Gale Foundation is a private, grantmaking foundation that supports housing, health and other in-home services and programs for low-income women age 65 and older living in the Greater Manchester area.

In 2023, The Mary Gale Foundation and Granite United Way joined forces to administer their grant-making efforts in the region. This three-year agreement will streamline the application for local nonprofit partners and strengthen efforts in the community. Granite United Way administers the process for The Mary Gale Foundation.

“Mary Gale’s generosity and foresight have provided a wonderful resource that supports the needs of this group of individuals in the Greater Manchester community,” said Alison Perrella, Board Chair for The Mary Gale Foundation. “We encourage all nonprofits who serve this population to apply.”

Those seeking funding are encouraged to visit the Granite United Way/Mary Gale page where they can access the application link.
