The Paul G. and Miriam B. Mattern fund was created in 2012 to honor the lives and volunteer activities of Paul and Miriam Mattern, long time residents of Walton NY.ย ย Paul was Delaware County’s Cooperative Extension agent for twenty years, a member of the board of the Delaware Valley Hospital and a generous contributor to charitable organizations. Miriam gave of herself tirelessly to volunteer activities. They lived simply and well, in the hope of leaving this world a better place than they found it.

The Mattern Fund welcomes proposals, from qualified non-profit organizations, that will support projects that enrich the cultural life and/or the social well-being in its broadest sense, of the residents of the village and township of Walton, New York. Matching grants are encouraged.

Grants will be awarded in amounts from $500 to $5,000. The 2020 deadline is 4pm Friday, March 14, 2020.
