The mission of the Easton Legacy Fund is to sustain and enhance Easton’s quality of life. To do that, the fund supports projects of Easton not-for-profits that it believes will make a difference.
Every year the Fund’s Board of Advisors picks the project or projects that it will support. The importance of the project to Easton, and the significance of the grant to the project, are weighed carefully. Priority is given to projects that support the arts, culture, recreation, and local history. The Legacy Fund is new, so it does not have a long history of grants. Its 2020 grant to support Oakes Ames Hall’s acquisition of new curtains for its stage was its first, but the pergola at Queset Gardens and the clock on Main Street are examples of other projects that the Fund would have been proud to support.
