The Geoffrey L. Holt Fund

In 2001, Geoffrey L. Holt executed an agreement with the NH charitable founda­tion to establish a donor-advised fund to be funded through his estate. Since Mr. Holt's passing in June of 2023, the Fund has been opened and partially funded. Mr. Holt identified the Fund's purpose and advisory committee. To suppo1t projects, programs and organizations that provide health, educational, recreational or cultural benefits to the residents of Hinsdale, NH. The advisory committee will accept grant applications from 501 C (3) public chari­ties, schools, municipal and government entities, religious organizations, and pri­vate operating foundations. It is estimated that about $115,000 will be available for grantmaking each year. An application can request from $250 to $30,000. Grants are accepting during application periods for one-time projects/needs, oper­ating support, or for matching grants for other grants (e.g., state, federal).

New Truck

Thanks to the voters who attended last year's town meeting, the town of Hinsdale was finally able to acquire its long-awaited highway truck, a 2024 Freightliner 114SD IO-wheeler. This impressive vehicle is equipped with a 10" blade front plow and a 1 0' wing blade, making it capable of handling all of the town's snow removal needs. Furthermore, it has the ability to carry up to 18 yards of debris in its body and includes a 10-yard stainless sander for spreading salt and sand. The truck is currently under lease and will become the property of Hinsdale once the lease period expires.
