2016 Marlborough Brigham Family Trust Awards
Marlborough Senior Center, December 8, 2016
The Marlborough Brigham Family Trust is pleased to announce the awarding of almost $40,000 in grants for this, the fourth year of grant-making for the Trust.

A total of $123,288.00 was requested from various community organizations this year. We continue to be very encouraged by the quality and diversity of the programs these grant applications detail.
