Seven nonprofits are going to get their chance Thursday night to win one of two $25,000 grants from the Entrepreneurs Foundation of New Hampshire.
The participating organizations will each get three minutes to deliver their pitches for why their organization should receive one of the grants during an event set for Thursday, Oct. 16, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Smuttynose Brewing Company in Hampton.
EFNH members will vote in “real time” to fund two projects that demonstrate “amplified benefits” for the organizations and communities they serve.
EFNH is an initiative of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, which channels the expertise, energy and passion of the state’s leading entrepreneurs to strengthen New Hampshire communities through innovative philanthropy.
“This is philanthropy fashioned entrepreneurial style,” says Shari Landry, vice president of the philanthropy and donor services at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. “These entrepreneurs see philanthropy as more than just writing a check. They are always looking for ways to add value.”
