We’ve raised $615,000 towards our $900,000 Annual Fund goal—over 68% of the way there!

Grants

 

The Massachusetts Cultural Council Facilities Fund has awarded Manomet $120,000 towards accessibility upgrades at our Plymouth, MA headquarters. We will be renovating the Banding Lab deck with a ramp, installing an ADA compliant front door and lift/elevator, and creating a first floor meeting space in the main building.  Manomet must now raise the 1-to-1 matching funds before the grant can be distributed and the project implemented. So, please stay tuned!

 

The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation has awarded Manomet $35,000 in support of the Celebrate Delaware Bay social marketing campaign. The project is cultivating connections between people, shorebirds and horseshoe crabs to build a community of action, to advocate for and protect, the Delaware Bay.

 

Charity Navigator 4-Star Rating

We are proud to announce Manomet has earned its third consecutive 4-star rating—only 12% of the charities rated have received at least three consecutive 4-star evaluations. Receiving four out of four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.

 

 This “exceptional” designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Manomet from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.
