Founded in 1992 by long-time Upper Valley peace activist Anne Slade Frey and a circle of friends, the Anne Slade Frey Charitable Trust was established to promote innovation and creativity in education, the arts, nonviolence, and social justice. All funds generated from the sale of Anne Frey’s home in Hanover, New Hampshire, as well as funds from her estate and donations, have been placed in socially responsible investment accounts. Twice each year since the autumn of 1993 the Trust has awarded a round of grants to individuals and groups involved in projects that are in harmony with the Trust’s goals.
