Quest to Reinvest local summer events are here!

The Quest to Reinvest Is proud to announce it’s 2012 Non-pr0fit winners. For the second straight year Exeter Events and Tents philanthropic arm runs the Quest to Re-invest program gifting grants to local New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine deserving non-profit charities.  This grant for goods and services allows these charities to utilize tents, tables, chairs, dance floors, stages and other special event merchandise that would otherwise cost thousands and thousands of dollars. Without these grants many organizations find it prohibitive to run community based outreach events like road races, pet walks, festivals and fundraisers of all kinds. Depriving groups of these very lucrative and rewarding types of events can now be overcome with a grant from Quest to Reinvest.

As each organization receives its 2012 grant we will feature them for you here. See the type of valuable non-profit services and causes right here in your backyard. Hopefully you will see the organizations you support or see one you want to support and get involved, attend the event and experience a great time and maybe meet some new neighbors.
