In Lauren’s spirit and memory, small grants have recently been awarded to individuals and groups with innovative project ideas in the above areas.

A total of 11 project proposals were funded. They include support for: new programs focusing on healthy relationships at three area high schools; a high-energy alternative-style string ensemble program in Wayland and Weston next fall; and a college summit on sexual misconduct prevention and education.

Lauren’s mother Mary Dunne commented “Awarding mini-grants is such positive work honoring Lauren and her memory. I’m ever grateful to those who honor her in so many ways.”

“We are delighted by the creativity and energy inherent in the proposed initiatives and the hope stirred in the potential of their positive, meaningful impacts.  What a nice link to Lauren!” commented Lauren’s father, Malcolm Astley.

Keep On Sparkling!  Please visit for more information on the grants and on the organization’s activities.
