Foundation for MetroWest
Your Community Foundation
The Foundation for MetroWest was founded in 1995 with a simple philosophy: You can make a world of difference in your own backyard. Where many donors, nonprofits and businesses join together to make the region they love a better place, today and for future generations.
Foundation for MetroWest connects philanthropic opportunity with demonstrated need. They promote philanthropy in the region, help donors maximize the impact of their local giving, serve as a resource for local nonprofit organizations, and improve the quality of life for all of our residents.
What Does That Mean?
It means that they are stronger together; that they can make a bigger difference when they work collectively. As a Community Foundation, they not only give out grants, they foster community.
They are here to help anyone that is looking to do something good for their community, by:
Connecting people with common interests and common goals to one another and showing them where donations can do the most good.
Working with the nonprofits in the area – making connections, encouraging partnerships, and building relationships.
Offering trainings and workshops for anyone connected to the organizations serving their region to help everyone work more efficiently and effectively – together.
They are more powerful and more impactful when we work together as a community.
How Do They Help?
They help donors plan and carry out their charitable giving, whether they already know where they want to give or need assistance identifying local needs.
They partner with others across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, bringing a consistent and knowledgeable voice to critical civic issues.
They manage funds and for both donors and nonprofits, reducing administrative costs while increasing tax advantages.
They provide resources and information to the public to help shine a light on the strengths and challenges that face our communities in MetroWest.
They offer programs for youth and nonprofits to learn, grow and build skills to better serve our communities.
Since 1995, they have distributed nearly $19 million back into their MetroWest communities.See more
