MetroWest Fund for Arts & Culture

A contribution to the MetroWest Fund for Arts & Culture helps share the local culture, supports the creative economy, and improves the overall quality of life in our community.

Art and culture surround us, adding richness and color to our days, complexity to our thoughts, and vibrancy to our civic life. They are a critical component of our community.

MetroWest takes pride in its rich cultural history and in the quality of its arts and cultural organizations. Performance venues, art galleries, music schools, and historical societies all make their homes in our community. These institutions partner with our towns and cities to serve the greater good. They are integral to community-building efforts and are part of what makes MetroWest a wonderful place to live.

Your donation to the MetroWest Fund for Arts & Culture will support ongoing cultural work in our region and ensure that MetroWest continues to be a center for arts and culture in the future.
