The Fund for Wellesley

Opportunities to Support

Back in 2008, a small group of citizens with a love of community came together to establish a fund of lasting importance for Wellesley. With the support of 133 individuals, families and businesses — our “Founders” — we launched The Fund for Wellesley.

Now, after eight years, we are happy to report that thanks in large part to our Founders, The Fund has established itself as an important source of community philanthropy and a catalyst for new ideas to keep our community strong. 

But, there is more we can do, and that is why we are launching a new program to sustain our work. The Stewards of The Fund for Wellesley will provide the capital to enable The Fund to continue addressing the opportunities and needs we see here in Wellesley today, tomorrow, and into the future.

Commitments of $5,000 or more qualify as Stewards of The Fund for Wellesley. Stewards may pledge and complete their gifts over a five year period. Download a Steward Pledge Form here.

We are excited to introduce parents of youth who participate in the Youth in Philanthropy program in Wellesley to The Fund and all the work we are doing in our community.

Thanks to additional generous donors, we are able to match gifts of up to $1,000 that are given by Youth in Philanthropy parents. This match is on top of the Challenge Match described above.

If you are a Youth in Philanthropy parent, please let us know by writing a note with your donation, so we can apply the match!
