Congratulations to the 2011 Flutie Foundation Grant Recipients!

Below is a list of 30 organizations that have been awarded grants for the 2011 grant cycle*. Please note that a number of the grants awarded this year have been reduced from the original request where appropriate, in order to accommodate additional grant recipients. The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation would like to thank all 201 grant applicants who submitted a proposal this year. Once again we received proposals from many exceptional organizations, making our decision a very difficult one.

*Each Grant Recipient must comply with the terms and conditions required under their respective Grant Agreement in order to receive a grant award. Grant Agreements will be mailed to all grant recipients in January.
