The Robert Lamprey Community Grant was established in honor of Robert “Bob” Lamprey, former Chairman of the Board of MutualOne Bank and current Chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation.
The grant in his name is a tribute to Bob for his longstanding and ongoing commitment, concern and caring for those in need in our community.
It is our hope that each future Robert Lamprey Community Grant recipient will be a catalyst for positive change, as Bob has been throughout his career.
Grant Information and Guidelines
The Robert Lamprey Community Grant is an annual award of $20,000 given by the MutualOne Charitable Foundation. It will be awarded to a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization focused primarily on the towns of Framingham and/or Natick. The Grant must benefit the low-income or less-advantaged and/or underserved population.
The Robert Lamprey Community Grant is not a part of the standard MutualOne Charitable Foundation grant request process. It requires a separate application.
Applicants who request but do not receive a Robert Lamprey Community Grant may still apply for an award through the standard MutualOne Charitable Foundation grant process.
Robert Lamprey Community Grant recipients must wait three years to apply for the Grant again in the future.
The deadline for submitting a Robert Lamprey Community Grant request is October 31 of each calendar year. The Grant will be awarded at the final meeting of MutualOne Charitable Foundation Trustees each year.
In reviewing proposals, the Trustees will give special consideration to the following:
- The benefit to low and moderate-income population
- The need of the target population to be served
- The need for the service by the target population
- The number of Framingham and/or Natick residents to be served by the project
- The impact of the project on the population served
- The significance of the grant on the organization’s ability to implement the project
- The sustainability of the project once the grant period has ended
