Tipping Point Grants provide a framework and funding through which some individuals can give so that others can grow.
A Tipping Point Grant is a one-time $1000 grant to help an individual stay on track and achieve his or her goals. Grant recipients are selected by our partner agencies: The Upper Valley Haven, Easter Seals NH, Families in Transition, and Anne-Marie House.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Partners for Community Wellness provides administrative backing for the program and generates philanthropic support.

From time to time we all hit bumps in the road while navigating the path of life. Quite often those bumps can seem insurmountable. Sometimes all you need is a little help to get back on the road to your goals.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Partners for Community Wellness, along with Easter Seals VT/NH, Families in Transition, the Upper Valley Haven, and Anne-Marie House have come together in a joint effort to introduce the Tipping Point Grant Program.
A grant from this program can be used to:
Support education: tuition, class materials, books, training classes, etc.
Address barriers to obtaining or retaining employment: clothing, housing, childcare,
food instability, tools / equipment / assistive technology necessary to succeed in the workplace
Small business development: licensing fees, equipment purchase, business cards or brochures
to increase marketing, etc.
Transportation: car repairs or to assist in the purchase of a reliable vehicle in order to obtain/retain employment or attend classes, etc.
Recipients of a Tipping Point Grant also receive mentoring and guidance to help meet their objectives.
