Attention Tyngsboro Business Owners and Residents:

As the Education Foundation for Tyngsborough grows its fundraising capability, we will be able to award more grants to our public school district. In the meantime, there will always be more worthy requests than we can support. Individuals and businesses are welcome to directly fund grant requests they believe are worthy of support.

If you are interested in fully funding a specific educational grant (the grant would then be named in you business' honor) and would like to review the grant applications, please contact President Theresa Manning at
