Bolton Hill Nursery Seeks Applications for Festival Grants

Dancing in the rain to Mambo Combo.

In spite of the rainy weather that met last fall’s Festival on the Hill the festival made a profit.

Festival funds are shared between the main organizer, Bolton Hill Nursery, and special projects that benefit the Bolton Hill neighborhood. In preparation for distributing the Festival’s proceeds to worthy projects, the Nursery is now seeking grant applications.

Any nonprofit that serves the 21217 zip code is invited to apply for a grant by the application deadline, March 10. Grants are awarded to special projects that either wouldn’t happen at all or would be greatly diminished without the funds. Grants are awarded May 1; the maximum award is $1,000.

Grant application information and further details are available on the Bolton Hill Nursery site.

Past recipients include Corpus Christi Church, Dance Happens, Mt. Royal PTO, the Mt. Royal School Garden, the Memorial Episcopal Rectory Teaching garden, Samaritan Community, Rutter Mill Park Association, Midtown Academy, and the Brown Memorial Tutoring program.
