Helping communities realize their unique vision
Do you love where you live? Many of us feel strong ties to our town or community, and want to make sure that it continues to be a wonderful place to live for generations. That’s why nurturing Town Funds is one of the Foundation for MetroWest’s major initiatives.
Town Funds are permanently endowed funds by local communities, and are led by a local board of volunteers who have a deep understanding of the needs and existing resources in their towns. Town Funds grant to innovative programs and services to sustain the local environment, enrich our cultural life, and make our communities stronger, healthier and more enjoyable places for all.
The Foundation for MetroWest is home to four Town Funds:
To date, we have worked with each town’s volunteer community boards to distribute 86 grants, awarding a total of $500,000 to organizations making a difference in Lexington, Southborough, and Wellesley.
In 2016, the Foundation welcomed the Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund, an endowed fund in partnership with the Medfield Foundation. This new fund will support innovative projects from private and public organizations to benefit Medfield residents.
With your help, the Foundation for MetroWest is committed to building new Town Funds each year by partnering with community members with strong ties to their city or town. Town funds create sustainable sources of revenue dedicated to enriching the quality of life in your neighborhood.
Together, let’s ensure that MetroWest continues to grow into a place where our next generation can thrive and make great memories.
