Named in honor of Mass Mentoring Partnership’s late Board Chair, Jim Connolly, the tribute fund honors his memory and dedication to mentoring. The fund supports an annual gift or project that is aligned with our mission of fueling the youth mentoring movement across Massachusetts, and Jim’s volunteer leadership and service to the organization. A competitive RFP is typically released each spring or summer, and interested applicants should check this page around that time.
Jim embodied, symbolized, and believed in the power of mentoring. Through the creation of the MMP Board Designated James G. Connolly Tribute Fund, we will honor his memory and advance youth mentoring as a tribute to his character and dedication to mentoring.
The application cycle for 2018-2019 is now open. Click here to apply.
With a grant from the 2018-2019 Connolly Fund, MMP will provide up to two awards, totaling $20,000, to two programs that develop strategies to expand or enhance programmatic and/or organizational practices to respond to the needs of older youth, ages 16-24.
