Tuesday, January 15, 2019

The F. M. Kirby Foundation Board of Trustees announced 222 core grants totaling $12.9 million were made in 2018 to nonprofit organizations working to foster self-reliance and create strong, healthy communities.

“Our grants have largely adhered to geographical areas of interest to the family and organizations associated with Board members, but we also support national programs across seven programmatic areas,” said Bill Byrnes, Vice President of Grants of the Morristown-based family foundation. “Notwithstanding our broad programmatic interests, it is our long-term relationships and commitment to provide unrestricted support, the life blood of any nonprofit, that reflects the strategic value of our grantmaking and typifies the Kirby family motto of “facta non verba” or “Deeds, not words.”
