NEB Local Community Grants

The Corporate Donations Committee is a volunteer group of NEB employees committed to fulfilling the NEB legacy of giving to those in need. We review and approve requests for monetary donations to local, grassroots community organizations with a focus on public education, environmental initiatives, health and safety programs, art programs, food pantries, and homeless shelters.

NEB Corporate Donations Committee is accepting emergency response requests from local community organizations. We are seeking requests both from non-profit organizations directly responding to COVID-19 related hardships but will also consider requests from small non-profits struggling to keep their programs running. Emergency response requests will be evaluated on a rolling basis and may be submitted at any time. Please note: The attachment requests are normally required, but are optional for emergency response requests.

Additional Requirements:  Please upload all information below (preferred).  We have provided four upload fields but you may combine these and upload fewer files as needed. Alternatively, you may fill out the information above and then email the requested documents as attachments to or mail the documents to NEB Corporate Donations Committee, 240 County Road, Ipswich MA 01983 if that is easier. Deadlines are April 1 and November 1 of each year. Questions should be directed to Fana Mersha by phone: 978-380-7283 or email at
