Frank Stanley Beveridge Foundation

In 1933, Frank Stanley Beveridge founded Stanley Home Products, Inc. in Westfield, Massachusetts (The Enesco Group, Inc.) In 1947, he founded the Frank Stanley Beveridge Foundation, a trust. In 1949, he established the Stanley Park of Westfield, Inc. on twenty-five acres of land in Westfield, Massachusetts. Today, Stanley Park consists of nearly 300 acres of formal gardens, a carillon tower, trails, sports fields and a substantial nature area. The Park was the principal recipient of funds from the Foundation through the year 2000. The Frank Stanley Beveridge Foundation, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on June 22, 1956 (the year of Mr. Beveridge's death).

In any case, this is a private foundation that is accepting grant applications for those organizations in their geographic area of interest.

BETF is willing to work with any chapter that feels that they are eligible for funding from this foundation. Just reply to this post if you/your chapter are interested in moving forward to the next step.
