2017 Funding Updates

As our 2016 program season has wrapped up, we immediately transitioned into preparing for 2017!  We are excited to announce some recent donations and grants that have provided us with a strong start to our fundraising season:

Ohnell Family Foundation: $25,000

The Ohnell Family Foundation has been supporting Kismet for several years.  Our relationship began when Mr. Ohnell attended a presentation and was able to meet some alumni and hear their story.  When you hear about what Kismet can do directly from the students, it creates a very special and powerful moment.

Stare Fund: $5,000

The Stare Fund has provided this gift in honor of Janet Wilkinson.  Janet and the Stare Fund have been long-time supporters of Kismet.  During our early stages as an organization, Janet helped the program grow into who we are today.  Thank you for everything you have done!

Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation: $20,000

Our work with the North Country of New Hampshire continues! The Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has provided funds to cover half of the tuition costs of 20 students from Coos County.  We are honored and grateful to be working with the Tillotson Fund and the young people of Coos County.

Getz Charitable Trust, Citizens Bank, N.A. Trustee: $1,000

This grant was awarded in support of the Kismet Community Leadership Project.  It is very important funding that will allow us to get this new project off the ground and running! Be on the look out for more information soon.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Kismet through donations or service.  We couldn’t do it without you!  If you want to learn more information on how to help, send us as message at: [email protected]

Happy November!
