Tourism Grants to Non-Profits

by Press Release | Nov 6, 2005
Tourism Grants to Non-Profits Burlington County Freeholders last week announced the award of more than $10,000 in matching grants to six nonprofit organizations in the county to increase tourism through local partnerships.

The Cooperative Marketing Grants were awarded to:
* Main Street Mount Holly - $2,500
* Medford Township Recreation Department - $2,500
* Alice Paul Institute, Mt. Laurel - $2,025
* Pinelands Preservation Alliance - $1,600
* Burlington County Historical Society - $1,215
* The Thomas Paine Society, Bordentown City - $773.

“Burlington County has a wealth of historical and cultural sites, as well as natural resource attractions, that draw visitors from throughout the county and beyond,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Vince Farias.

“These grants, similar to grants distributed by our Cultural and Heritage Affairs Office, will go a long way in helping the small nonprofit organizations prosper by enabling them to inform larger audiences of the many interesting attractions to see in Burlington County,” Farias said.

This is the second year of the Burlington County marketing grants distributed through the Department of Economic Development and Regional Planning’s Office of Tourism. The Burlington County Historical Society is partnering with the Roebling Historical Society to develop marketing materials for the area. Main Street Mount Holly is partnering with Mill Race Village to produce literature designed to increase visitation to the downtown district. The Medford Township Recreation Department is partnering with the Historic Medford Village Business Association and the Medford Business Association.

The Thomas Paine Society will partner with the Bookshelf in Bordentown City. The bookstore on Farnsworth Avenue is a member of the Bordentown Downtown Business Association.

The Pinelands Preservation Alliance will partner with the Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge in Medford and the Alice Paul Institute is partnering with the 1875 River Line Inn Bed and Breakfast on Broad Street in Riverton. The Victorian house was the home of Mary VanMeter Grice, one of the founding members of the New Jersey Mothers of Congress which later became the Parent Teachers Association (PTA).
