Your Co-op, Your Community™

The purpose of the New Hampshire Electric Co-op Foundation is to improve the quality of life for our members and the communities we serve. As a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, the NHEC Foundation provides grants to local non-profits throughout NHEC’s service territory.

Founded in 2006, the NHEC Foundation is funded primarily through the voluntary contributions of NHEC members through our Round Up program. Thanks to those generous members, the NHEC Foundation has awarded more than $4.6 million throughout the communities we serve. The NHEC Foundation supports charitable organizations that are designed to promote health and social well-being programs, enrichment programs and/or educational programs, hunger programs, cultural art programs and academic achievement programs. See all the organizations the Foundation supported in 2022.

How to Apply for a Grant

If your organization significantly benefits NHEC members, and supports the Foundation’s charitable priorities, please read our Application Guidelines. Requests must come from NH based non-profit organizations that are recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Grant applications and Eligibility inquiry sheets can be found in the download section.

The Foundation board meets quarterly to award grants in March, June, September and December. Grant applications are due on the first day of the months that the board meets (March 1, June 1, September 1, December 1).
