250th Anniversary Fund Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Temple 250th Anniversary Fund is to support projects that are of benefit to Temple and its citizens but would not be financed through normal town budget expenditures.  The annual interest from the Fund, currently around $1000, is available to be awarded to projects recommended by the Fund Advisory Committee (appointed by the Temple Select Board).

If you have a project we can help with, please get in touch.

We accept applications throughout the year, review them until early fall, and usually make award decisions by October 15.
Since 2009, some organizations we’ve supported include:

  • The Cemetery Trustees (gravestone repairs)
  • Village Green Committee (new trees and other plantings around town; repair of Town Common fencing)
  • Historical Society of Temple (portrait restoration)
  • Mansfield Library (furniture, video camera)
  • Conservation Commission (trail kiosk)
  • Temple Elementary School (playground equipment)

Projects and ideas from individuals are welcome!  More information is available at the town offices.

Application form and contact information here.
