Rosemary Davis Memorial Fund
The Rosemary Davis Memorial Fund makes grants to nonprofit organizations, libraries and schools to protect animals and to educate Central Massachusetts residents on topics of wildlife, nature, and environmental science.
The Rosemary Davis Fund has awarded all available grants for 2018. Any applications received between now and December will be reviewed in late January 2019.
The fund was created in 2000 with a bequest made by Rosemary Davis of Lancaster. The Foundation works with advisors to make grantee award decisions.

Application Forms & Instructions
The application form is online. The first time an organization applies to the Foundation through our online application system, it creates an Organization Account to use for each application going forward. Please use the same account you have previously used, or create a new one if this your first time applying online. You may contact Foundation staff to find out if your organization already has an account in our system.
You are advised to contact a staff member to discuss your request before sending it in.
