The Foundation for MetroWest’s mission is to connect philanthropic opportunity with demonstrated need. We 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 citizens. By collaborating with philanthropists on their giving goals, educating and supporting nonprofits and youth, and partnering with business leaders, we are working together to build a bright future for everyone in MetroWest.

Voices from the field
Through Youth in Philanthropy, I learned that there are so many ways to get involved in your community. You can give your time, give your talent, or give your money. Even just spreading the word about what your favorite nonprofit does to make the world a better place is helping. I had no idea there were so many ways to make a difference, and I had no idea that no matter what you do—it matters.
To me, being a leader in a community is not only providing my time, energy and resources but also reminding those around me to do the same. The Foundation for MetroWest has created an organization based on many of the values I have mentioned above. I want to thank the Foundation for this honor and more importantly thank everyone involved in the organization for the amazing work you do day in and day out.
We know our organization exists because of our philanthropic partners in the region. As we expand and become more self supportive through our social enterprise organizations, the commitment from the Foundation from MetroWest has made the efforts successful. The work is ongoing.
Of all partners, the Foundation for MetroWest is the foundation I owe the most for financial support, and most importantly for my professional development. I attended so many of your workshops and training sessions, and I have learned so much from the incredibly experienced and knowledgeable speakers you chose for your workshops. I can’t thank you enough!
We have been delivering STEM programming both here onsite and in schools for more than 23 years, and this is a great opportunity to build upon that and expand our capacity to serve children outside of the classroom. The Foundation for MetroWest is generously providing the means for us to impact students who otherwise might not be reached.
We are so grateful to the Foundation for MetroWest for its continued support of our work. This funding will allow us to go into the community and talk about the range of services we provide victims of rape and domestic violence. We know that sexual assault and domestic violence continue to be pervasive issues in our society and it is gratifying that an organization like the Foundation understands that and is there to support our mission.
