The mission of the Smith Purdon Fund is to provide funding to innovative programs that support family life with a goal of positively impacting the lives of children and youth. The fund also supports programs that seek to meet the needs of low income families, immigrants and mentally or physically limited residents of the greater Merrimack Valley.
In the past, the fund has focused on new and creative programs, especially those with broad impacts within the community. This will continue to be a primary focus but existing programs with new approaches and ideas will be considered.
The Smith Purdon Fund grant awards range between $1,000 to $4,000.
