Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a New Hampshire or Maine nonprofit organization working to benefit communities in eligible regions. Funding is intended to support capital projects, new programs, or general organizational operations. Priorities include health and human services, assisting the socio-economically underserved, and improving the quality of life for residents on the New Hampshire seacoast (as well as York County in Maine).

At the beginning of each year, the Seacoast Half Marathon organizing committee selects a nonprofit beneficiary for that year’s race. Each year’s revenue, after direct race expenses are paid, goes to the beneficiary and to the other nonprofit groups that staff the water stops on the race course each year. All revenue after race expenses will be granted to the selected beneficiary. Each year the amount varies based on race registrations, sponsorships, and out-of-pocket race expenses.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Historically, the beneficiaries have earned between $35,000 and $120,000, depending on race registrations and sponsorship revenue.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

An applicant must:
-Be an approved 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
-Provide services in the Seacoast of NH (which may include York County Maine).
-Must be able to serve as the fiscal agent for the Seacoast Half Marathon for the year that the organization is the beneficiary. This involves processing all accounts receivables (race registrations and sponsorships) and payables (race expenses)
-Must be able to send a representative to race committee meetings (generally held monthly).
-Must be able to secure approximately 25-40 volunteers to help out on race day morning (the second or third Sunday in November).
-Must have a staff member, board members, or volunteers who are willing and able to solicit sponsorships for the race – the amount of sponsor dollars raised to help offset race expenses will have a direct impact on the amount of money the beneficiary realizes at the end of the race.

Previous Seacoast Half Marathon beneficiaries may reapply 5 years after the year in which they were last the race beneficiary.

The following organizations are generally NOT eligible for support:
-Religious or faith based organizations or programs.
-Political organizations or programs.
-Organizations that discriminate in any way.
-Public or private schools.

Pre-Application Information:

The due date for submission of the applications is February 1, 2020.

A small group of prospective grant recipients will be selected in February as finalists and at that time additional information may be requested. Finalists may be invited to meet with the race committee. Site visits may be requested of the finalist organizations. One organization will be selected in late February to be the race beneficiary.

A separate application is available for groups wishing to run a water stop and receive a small grant.
