Northfield Shares 2023 Grant Recipients

Northfield Shares is proud and honored to be entrusted with, and steward, gifts from donors who created an endowed fund. They have created their legacy in Northfield to support Our Community forever!

It is from these endowed charitable funds that Northfield Shares annually provides financial support to our nonprofit partners, organizations and programs that make a difference in our community.

In December, Northfield Shares will distribute over $186,000 into our community to 19 unique organizations supporting 23 programs and projects. These dollars will make an impact in areas from art to agriculture, youth to adults, activity to education, health, housing and happiness and beyond.

Thank you to all those who have established an endowed fund with Northfield Shares, the community foundation. Your generosity and support of Northfield today and into the future is greatly appreciated.
