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.  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.
