Grant Guidelines and Deadlines

Since SCHIP began making grants, many non-profits have used their awarded funds to continue their mission to improve the lives of our neighbors and strengthen our communities. Grants range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. Grants are made possible as a result of SCHIP’s mission to raise funds through the sale of donated, gently used clothing, household items, accessories, jewelry, art, and collectibles at its resale shop in the distinctive yellow building on Route 7, next to the town offices. Since the first grants given in April 2005, more than $920,000 has been distributed.
