Become a Founder AND Invest in Innovation & Growth for our Local Business Community

Support the Ecosystem for Entrepreneurs that are the Economic Engine of the Monadnock Region

Since 1997, the Hannah Grimes Marketplace and the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship have served as a simple, beautiful and well-built home and a hub for entrepreneurs working to build a thriving local economy and a vibrant community. The Founder’s Circle strengthens the legacy by building the economy-community connection and offers you a tangible way to support the vibrancy of our local economy.  

Founders Circle Membership

Immersed in the dizzying changes of these crazy days, it’s easy to lose track of the fact that each age has had its share of change. Hannah Grimes was born in 1776, another era when the political system, transportation, industry, communications and health care were also experiencing fundamental change. Hannah Grimes married in 1806 and built a farm that stands strong to this day. It is simple, beautiful and well-built, and has stayed the course through many seasons of  great change.   We instituted the Founders Circle to ensure that the Hannah Grimes Center will likewise continue to be a well-built structure able to stay the course through many seasons of great change.  

We launched the Founders Circle with 22 members in 2019, with Founders Circle members supporting the Hannah Grimes Center with a gift of $1,776 or more.  We warmly invite you to become part of an influential gathering of people, foundations, businesses and ideas that are foundational to our work to create a thriving local economy and vibrant community.
