Mentoring Program

The Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society’s
Mentoring Program for Free-Roaming Cats

 
Effective November 1, 2015, the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society is launching a “primer grant program” for grass-roots feline welfare organizations.
 
Each group accepted to the program will be assigned an experienced mentor, who will help the organization develop a new fundraiser or several fundraisers to generate up to $1,000. MRFRS will then match this revenue with the amount raised up to $1,000, creating a pool of $2,000 to be used for spaying and neutering cats.
 
The “primer grant program” has selected 12 groups to participate in the program in 2016. If you would like to be put on a list to be kept up to date on mentoring opportunities as they become available, please email please email Stacy LeBaron at stacy@mrfrs.org.
