Highlighting IOD Donors
As a non-profit, community oriented organization, the IOD is dedicated to providing needed services and supports for individuals and families in communities throughout
New Hampshire. As such, the IOD relies heavily upon the generosity of private individuals, foundations, and corporations to sustain this work and provide help to those
in need. Below are highlights of gifts received in recent months.
The Lloyd G. Balfour Foundation, managed by Bank of America Philanthropic Management, award the third installment of a four-year, $100,000 grant in support of the
New Hampshire Leadership Series. These funds are helping to support costs for Leadership Series participants, including full tuition, accommodations, meals, childcare, and
The New Hampshire Bar Foundation awarded $5,000 in support of the Leadership Series' Legislative Session. As the sixth of the seven sessions in the Series, the
Legislative Session includes training in the legislative process, an introduction from Governor John Lynch, and a day of meetings at the State House with participants'
legislators. This grant was made possible by the New Hampshire Bar Foundation, Stanley M. and Thalia M. Brown Fund, and the Judge Richard F. Cooper Fund.
The Gone Giving Group awarded a grant of $30,000 to support the NH Leadership Series, the fundraising capacity of the IOD, and general operating costs. The IOD
has leveraged this award to help increase giving from individuals toward the Leadership Series and to expand the development program. The Gone Giving Circle is a group
of like-minded individuals with backgrounds in media, science, technology, social issues and philanthropy. They combine their time, talents and money available for
charitable giving to research non-profit organizations and award grants from the shared pool.
