Grantors

The Mariposa Museum is proud to receive grants from the following groups and businesses:


C&S Wholesale Grocers

C&S Wholesale Grocers

C&S Wholesale Grocers (headquartered in Keene) has been a long-time partner of the Mariposa, sponsoring many programs and exhibits which would not have been possible without their investment and support. These programs have explored themes as diverse as childhood hunger in New Hampshire and indigenous efforts to protect lands and water from pipelines in North Dakota and Minnesota. A concert by the Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars raised money for ebola relief and education. The play Dreaming Again, co-produced with and performed by NH Theatre Project, shared NH’s unfolding 300-year immigration story with more than 5,000 students and teachers at middle schools and high schools across our state. In 2016, C&S helped make possible a year-long exhibit and related programs exploring Why Inclusion Matters. For five years, C&S support has fueled YES, the Mariposa’s Youth Empowered through Service Program, at ConVal High School in Peterborough and (for three years) at Keene High School. Through YES, high school students have explored how non-profits work to address local, national, and global community issues, steering prize money to such causes as support for homeless veterans, legal support for victims of human trafficking, disabled children, a senior gathering place in Jaffrey, sports for underserved  youth in NH and Africa, girls’ education in Nepal, animal welfare in NH, and water protection in NH and abroad. www.cswg.com » and community.cswg.com »


Endowment for Health

Endowment for Health

The Endowment has generously helped to support performances of the play, Dreaming Again, by the NH Theatre Project, at middle and high schools around the state. Written by Genevieve Aichele, this live play brings to life the experiences of immigrants to the Granite State over the last century, exploring reasons why people leave their homelands and what it’s like to create a new life in this strange place called New Hampshire! Dreaming Again was commissioned by the NHHC as a part of their Fences & Neighbors series www.endowmentforhealth.org »


NH Charitable Foundation

NHCF has generously supported touring of the live play Dreaming Again to middle and high schools around NH in the 2013-14 academic year. The play has introduced close to 3,000 students as well as teachers and administrators to the experiences of immigrants to NH over the last two centuries. www.nhcf.org »


The New Hampshire Humanities Council (NHHC)

The New Hampshire Humanities Council (NHHC)

For nearly four decades, the NHHC has been connecting people to culture, history, places, ideas, and one another. The Mariposa is the recipient of numerous Humanities to Go grants that support special presentations by humanities scholars and performers at the musuem. This year (2013-14 academic year), we are thrilled to have received a major grant supporting a series of Professional Development Workshops for NH Educators. Designed to follow our presentation of the live play Dreaming Again at middle and high schools around the state, workshops are for teachers interested in deepening understanding and teaching around immigration to NH, and creating more culturally adaptive classrooms that are safe learning environments for all students. Please contact the Mariposa for details. www.nhhc.org »


Putnam Foundation

Putnam Foundation has generously supported transportation of students from schools throughout NH to the museum, making it possible for many who could not otherwise participate in our educational programs to come. In 2013, Putnam Foundation has also provided us with a grant to create and distribute curriculum resources and offer student-to-student get-togethers that increase understanding about immigration and the many cultures now represented in NH (follows the live play Dreaming Again). http://www.apts.org/grantcenter/funding-topic/arts-and-humanities/putnam-foundation »
