The Nashoba Valley Health Care Fund's purpose is to advance the community health of residents in Nashoba Valley.
The Nashoba Valley Health Care Fund was established in 2006 when Essent Healthcare purchased the Nashoba Valley Medical Center. The endowment of the medical center was divided between the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts and the Greater Lowell Community Foundation.
The Nashoba Valley Health Care Fund focuses on advancing the community health of residents in eleven (11) communities: Ashby, Ayer, Bolton, Groton, Harvard, Lancaster, Littleton, Lunenburg, Pepperell, Shirley, and Townsend.
Priority will be given to, but not limited to, proposals pertaining to:
- Prevention of health problems
- Access to healthcare services
- Elder health
- Youth and adolescent health
- Behavioral Health
Grant awards typically range from $5,000 to $20,000; however, larger-scale collaborative projects with requests that are more than $20,000 will be considered if the project's impact justifies the increased funding request.
