Our Mission: To assist individuals in our Billerica community with educational enrichment projects.

How Funds Are Raised     Review and purchase books at AMAZON as well as BARNES & NOBLE!

Like all foundations, funding comes from grants and donations received from individuals and companies along with fund-raising events.  Currently, Billerica Adventure Series Corp. is selling a series of children's books entitled "The Adventures of Giggles and Owen."  This series tells the true story of two dogs who were the stars on a Billerica Access Television program for six years.  All the manuscripts and illustrations for this book series have been donated to the Corporation to help further our goals.

How Funds Are Granted

Funds are granted annually.  A sub-committee of the Billerica Adventure Series Corp. selects recipients, and takes their selection to the main Board for approval.  The support given to those selected, we believe, will assist the individuals receiving the funding, who on completion of their project, will complement our community and beyond.
