Since 1979, the focus of grants made by the Woods Hole Foundation has evolved to match community needs. Grants have ranged from preservation of buildings used by area non-profits, to operating funds for local service organizations. All grants are intended to maintain and improve the quality of life and character of our community. In general, grants range from a few hundred to around three thousand dollars.
