Lexington Grant Makers. Have you heard about the Dana Home Foundation, The Trustees of Public Trusts and the Fund for Lexington? They are among a number of Lexington organizations which are dedicated to supplementing public funds with private grants for all residents, young and old. As part of our informative First Friday Forums, the League of Women Voters Lexington is highlighting a few of these grant makers in February and March.

Susan McClements, a board member of both the Dana Foundation, and the Trustees of Public Trusts, and Norman Cohen, a member of the Fund for Lexington Board will speak in depth about their organizations and projects they have supported.
