Get Your Free Money Here!

There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

But the Westport Woman’s Club offers 2 things that are even better: Grants for non-profit organizations. And/or free use of newly renovated Bedford Hall for a fundraiser.

For 108 years, the WWC has been in the donating business. They’ve given grants and scholarships, along with services (the town’s 1st sidewalks) and more.

Last year alone, the club provided funds to Westport’s Department of Human Services for seniors and youths; Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County; Breast Cancer Emergency Aid Foundation, Mercy Learning Center and others — 44 applications in all.

The WWC wants to make sure every local group knows about these funds.

They’re also passing the word about historic Bedford Hall. Organizations needing space for events will love its great stage, LED lighting, AV system and kitchen — all for free.

The grant application deadline is October 31; click here for the form. For information about Bedford Hall, call 203-227-4240.

    Homes with Hope has long benefited from the good work of the Westport Woman’s Club through annual grants and use of their facilities. We appreciate how they reach out to the community in so many ways – and then provide a great breakfast to distribute grants! Thanks for reporting on their good works, Dan!
