Beginning in 2014, more than $400,000 will be dispersed to a total of four recipients, including the RFK Center. The other grants are $100,000 for scholarships for international students; $75,000 for the Frannie Peabody Center to help immigrants living with HIV; and $5,000 to the Museum of American Art in Ogunquit.
