A LEGACY OF GENEROSITY
“Moving our family foundation to the Community Foundation has amplified the impact of our grantmaking investment. Not only did we gain their administrative and financial expertise, but our ability to support the community in perpetuity is safeguarded. Being part of the SouthCoast Community Foundation family, we retain the power of grant-making, but our ability to be effective grant makers is strengthened significantly by the Community Foundation unparalleled community outreach and relationships. Their insights provide us with information about what is going on in the community, where the needs are, and who is doing what to meet them. We simply would not have that on our own.”
– JOHN BULLARD & PETER C. BULLARD, FUND ADVISORS TO HENRY H. CRAPO FOUNDATION FUND,

Equitable college admissions and addressing hunger in the South Coast region. Just two examples of critical work that will benefit from a legacy of generosity and how the Henry H. Crapo Foundation Fund is supporting critical work taking place in the Greater New Bedford region. Lawyer Henry H. Crapo, born in Dartmouth and lived for many years in New Bedford, Massachusetts, established the Henry H. Crapo Foundation Fund to support civic, educational, and charitable projects in New Bedford and neighboring towns. Originally a private family foundation, it was moved to the Community Foundation to manage in 2010.
