HNH Foundation Invites Applications for 2017 Sandi Van Scoyoc Legacy Award

When Sandi Van Scoyoc retired as the founding President of the HNH Foundation in 2014, she wrote that her hope for the future was for New Hampshire “to be a national leader in the good health and well-being of our youngest, most vulnerable citizens.” To honor this wish, a Legacy Award prize of $2500 is made to a New Hampshire organization or an individual who exemplifies Ms. Van Scoyoc’s commitment to “best practices (health) in support of children and families,” according to President Gail Garceau.

Nonprofit organizations or individuals demonstrating community impact and innovation in areas that align with the HNH Foundation’s funding priorities (health and dental coverage, oral health, obesity prevention, childhood trauma prevention or amelioration, and access to affordable and healthy food) are encouraged to apply.

  • New Hampshire tax-exempt organizations or individuals are eligible for nomination.   A tax-exempt entity can be nominated by someone within the organization, or by an outside entity. Nominated organizations must be in good standing with NH Secretary of State. An individual must be nominated by someone other than themselves. Awards to individuals are subject to taxes, unless directed to a tax-exempt entity.
  • Anyone can apply; nominees are not limited to previous HNH Foundation grantees.
