The Williamstown Community Chest was the recipient of a very generous bequest from the estate of Mary and Henry Flynt, longtime residents of Williamstown and devoted supporters of the community.

The terms of the bequest create an endowment fund with a specified portion to be distributed annually as grants, by means of a competitive process, to “…persons or entities (including the Town of Williamstown) that provide services to the town or its residents (although not necessarily exclusively).” The criteria for reviewing applications will “…relate to the maintenance or improvement of the quality of life of the residents of Williamstown, defined broadly.”

The application deadline for the next round of Flynt Grants is October 7, 2019.  Click here to apply: Flynt Grant Application
