Squannacook Greenways wins $10,000 grant from Bruce J. Anderson Foundation
Squannacook Greenways is pleased to announce that they were awarded a $10,000 grant from the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation in July 2016. This grant will go directly toward the construction of the stone dust Squannacook River Rail Trail. With this $10,000 grant, the capital campaign has now raised more than $57,000, well more than a third of the way to our goal of $150,000.

Informed by intelligence, sensitivity, and the knowledge of many countries and cultures, Bruce J. Anderson was a serious and idealistic young man who cared deeply about the problems he saw around him. The Bruce J. Anderson Foundation was established in 1980 by Bruce's brothers and sisters to honor Bruce and support the causes he championed. Squannacook Greenways, with its goal of making life better and more active for all residents, but especially younger ones, is proud to have been choosen to receive this grant.

The Bruce J. Anderson Foundation is a supporting organization of the Boston Foundation.
