Foundation is now accepting applications for the Mary B. Grogan Fund for Youth. Established in 2001, this fund honors Mary Grogan's legacy of leadership through the Worcester County 4-H Foundation by awarding small grants to support educational and recreational projects benefiting youth who live in Millbury.

Applicants with projects that focus on the environment, horticulture and animal life are especially encouraged to apply. Grants range from $200 - $1,000.

“Past grantees of the Mary B. Grogan Fund for Youth have enriched the lives of Millbury's young people through activities that build environmental stewardship and create opportunities to engage in experiences outside the classroom,” said Sarah Shugrue, Senior Program Officer with the Greater Worcester Community Foundation. “As we all continue to navigate the challenges of the pandemic, we see more than ever the value in fostering these connections.”

Applications to the Mary B. Grogan Fund for Youth are accepted online and due by October 15, 2021. For more information, contact Sarah Shugrue, at or 508-755-0980.
