The Milford Lions Club will again be offering grants to non-profits in 2024

The Milford Lions Club Service Foundation will again be accepting applications from non-profit 501 (c) 3 organizations for grants from the Eunice S. Reed Fund to benefit the Greater Milford Community. Applications will be accepted during January 2024 and must be postmarked not-later-than 5:00 PM on January 31, 2024. Grant checks will be awarded by late May 2024.

The Milford Lions Club has established this grant program to enable prospective recipients to develop or expand projects of significant benefit to the Greater Milford Community. In 2023, this program awarded grants totaling $63,600 to 20 very deserving organizations.

Requests for a minimum of $5,000 are preferred, however smaller amounts will be considered. This is a matching program, with grant recipients required to provide at least 10% of total project funding, unless in the judgment of the Lions Reed Fund Awards Committee the project merits waiver of this requirement. The application letter must include the purpose of the project, the amount being requested, how the funds are to be spent, and a schedule for completion of the project. Eligible applicants include schools and other youth organizations, non-profit organizations, public welfare organizations, environmental groups, civic associations, etc. Cooperative partnerships involving multiple parties, including private industry are also welcomed to apply. Grants will be awarded to applicants whose projects, in the judgment of the Milford Lions Club, will be most beneficial to this community.

Application forms are available on the Milford Lions Club website:

or from members of the Milford Lions Club. All applications must be fully completed, signed, and mailed by the deadline to be considered. Questions on the grant program may be directed to Lion Tom Reiss at 302-725-5843 or 908-581-7931 or Lion Gaillyn Wadkins-Berry at 302-745-1177.
