Van Scoyoc Legacy Award
This award recognizes a New Hampshire not-for-profit organization, or an individual who works for a non-profit, that demonstrates exemplary and aspirational commitment or innovation toward improving the health of New Hampshire’s children and families. The 2020 award will be presented to Dianne Macon at the Foundation’s annual event on October 7. Three years ago, Macon was approached by the Goffstown Network Food Pantry to start a weekend food program for children in Goffstown, New Boston and Dunbarton. Starting from scratch, the newly-retired teacher quickly recruited a team of volunteers and created a unique and innovative program in partnership with area schools.
The New Hampshire Children’s Health Foundation awarded $989,800 in grants during its latest program year, with new awards and field investments benefiting 30 health-related initiatives and projects at nonprofit and community organizations across the state.
