The Janet Malser Humanities Trust is accepting applications for the 2015 grant cycle. Ms. Malser set up the charitable Trust in order to support the arts and humanities, community service and conservation in the towns of Dudley, Oxford, and Webster, MA.

The causes for which funding will be considered include: “the restoration and preservation of historic sites; the furtherance of art and music in the schools, both public and private; public concerts with an emphasis on classical music; the improvement and growth of public libraries; the support of church work aiding the indigent, homeless, aging citizens and needy children; beautification through planting and the preservation of park areas and cemeteries; the improvement of service and equipment at the Hubbard Regional Hospital [now Harrington Healthcare at Hubbard], and the environmental protection of Webster Lake.”

Applicants are encouraged to attend an information session to be held on Monday, February 9th from 6:30-8 p.m. (snow date February 12th) at the Pearle L. Crawford Memorial Library located at 40 Schofield Avenue in Dudley. Helpful tips in completing the application will be discussed and questions will be answered by a member Trustee. Call Margaret (Peg) Pedersen at 508-434-2668 with any questions about the session.

Trustees make awards annually to verified tax-exempt organizations meeting the charitable purposes of the Trust. Prior recipients are eligible to apply so long as proper follow up status reports have been filed; otherwise they will not be considered.

Applications and instructions for the current year are available at www.janetmalsertrust.org.  Please use the 2015 application as changes have been made. All applications must be postmarked by April 1, 2015.
