The Theodore Edson Parker Foundation trustees are pleased to announce that Mission of Deeds, a local non-profit providing household furnishing to families in Lowell, has been awarded the first mini-grant established earlier this year.  Mini-grants will be awarded quarterly.

In addition, grants for larger projects including but not limited to building needs, education, food insecurity and services for youth, families and veterans are awarded twice a year.  Parker funded over $400,000 in grants in May 2023 to a wide range of programs and projects.  For more information, please visit
