In 2007, the Mansfield Select Board formed the Non-Profit Gift Fund Committee, with the sole purpose of equitably distributing donated monies to Mansfield non-profit programs and projects. All recipients go through a thorough application process and are chosen by the committee  according to the fund criteria.

The Non-Profit Gift Fund Committee invites Mansfield Non-Profit organizations and programs to submit grant requests for funding. If you have any questions, please contact Parks and Recreation Department.

Gift Fund Application Process

The application forms  are available at the Town Clerk’s office, at the Recreation Office in Town Hall, or downloaded below:

Once your application is accepted, your request will be reviewed and voted on by the Non-Profit Gift Fund committee. The final recommendations of all grants are then sent to the Select Board for its vote, after which, you will receive written notification of their decision.
