CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire Charitable Foundation fund has recently awarded 13 grants in the North Country totaling nearly $700,000.

Students across the North Country will get classes, tools and experience to help them stay engaged in math and science through the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund. An historic theater will expand to serve more customers. Adults with disabilities will get new ADA-compliant cooktops and stoves so they can cook their own meals. A town will get a new soccer field for its kids.

Established in 2006, the Tillotson Fund is one of the largest permanent rural philanthropies in the country, distributing nearly $3 million in grants annually to support community revitalization projects. Grants are awarded to municipal, educational and nonprofit organizations throughout northern New Hampshire and bordering communities in Vermont and southern Québec.
