Cuno Foundation Awards Grants

             The Distribution Committee of the Cuno Foundation awarded $22,800 in grants to organizations in and around Meriden.  Grant recipients include the Horace Bushnell Memorial Hall Corp, Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven, Master’s Manna, Inc., The Cove for Grieving Children and TriCircle.

            “The Cove for Grieving Children is an agency we’ve supported in the past and are happy to assist them in their mission of providing hope and healing for grieving children/teens and their families,” said John Stanton, Chairman of the Cuno Foundation’s Distribution Committee.  “We are helping by partially funding their 20-week peer-support bereavement program that follows the school year which is designed to help children and teens avoid the negative effects of unresolved grief that can include anger, depression, low academic performance and other behaviors.”

            The Cuno Foundation is again accepting grant applications for public, charitable or educational purposes.  Grants are usually made for specific, tangible items or capital expense requests that directly benefit the recipient.  The Cuno Foundation does not grant funds for salaries.  As a general rule, organizations are not awarded more than one grant per calendar year.  Preference is given to proposals submitted by tax-exempt, not for profit organizations located in the Meriden area and special consideration is given to those agencies that seek additional funding from other sources and do not rely solely on the Cuno Foundation for funding.

            Applications are reviewed three times a year.  The next deadline date to submit an application is December 15, 2022.  Awards will be announced in January 2023.

Non-profit organizations seeking to submit a grant for consideration should visit www.cunofoundation.org/grants where they can create an account and submit their grant application via the website.  An agency can also create an account for the online grants system at any time outside of the application cycle.  Questions regarding the application process can be directed to cunofoundation@gmail.com.
