Jean Wood Preston Grants for 2023
Call for Nominations

The Outreach Committee asks for your help in the call for nominations as its launches this year’s Preston Grant awards. These grants are made possible by the bequest of the late Jean Wood Preston to FPL in 1981 for the purpose of helping smaller organizations committed to supporting economically disadvantaged groups, mental and physical health, child welfare, and environmental advocacy.

Every year the Outreach Committee contacts small charitable organizations and requests applications for projects they need to fund. The committee selects at least three charitable organizations in the greater Boston area to receive awards of $5,000 to $25,000 for capital improvements or transformative innovation projects. These grants have made a significant difference in the lives of many people.

The Outreach Committee welcomes nominations from FPL members and friends, of small non-profit organizations within a 30-mile radius of Lincoln. You can check if your favorite local charities are on the Outreach List by clicking on the link below.
