The Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund: Local Grants Program—one of the largest permanent rural philanthropies in the United States—supports projects in New Hampshire's Coos County, as well as bordering communities in the United States and Canada, that focus on community revitalization and sustainable development. In an advisory role, Groundswell Consulting has worked to:

+ Recruit, train, manage, and lead a ten-person advisory committee
+ Steward a grant-making process for grants up to $20,000 that reflect the values, goals, and priorities of the fund
+ Conduct due diligence for all applicants and maintain relationships before, during, and after the grant period
