Congratulations to the 2012 Flutie Foundation Grant Recipients!  Recipients of the 2012 Allison Keller iPad Program can be found HERE.

Below is a list of 36 organizations that have been awarded grants for the 2012 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 168 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.
