Whether you establish a Town Fund or make a gift, you become part of a permanent endowment, helping your community forever.
Do you love where you live? Many of us feel strong ties to a town or community, and want to make sure that it continues to be a wonderful place to live. As a result, communities around MetroWest have set up Town Funds.
One of the Foundation for MetroWest's major initiatives over the last decade has been to establish Town Funds. These are permanently endowed and work to build the quality of life for all residents in their town. The funds support innovative programs and services that help make life safer, healthier, and more enjoyable for all members of the community in the areas of health and human services, recreation, community building, environmental protection and the arts.
Each Town Fund is led by a volunteer community board which has a deep understanding of local needs and the nonprofits that address them. These committee members oversee fundraising, review applications based on published criteria and recommend grants to the foundation's Board of Directors.
The Foundation for MetroWest currently has funds which benefit the following towns:
