People Served

As the MetroWest region’s community foundation, we improve the quality of life in 30+ communities by providing financial and educational resources to local nonprofit organizations, sharing essential data about our region to inform decision making, and partnering with donors to help guide and align their giving with the areas of greatest need.

What We Do

We identify areas where the needs are the greatest and implement initiatives to address these needs. We focus on the outcome, are nimble, and adjust accordingly.

Impact Areas



For more than 27 years, the Community Foundation for MetroWest (CFMW) has continued to unite 30+ communities in our shared mission to make the region we all know and love a better place. The ONEmetrowest Fund was launched to help continue that pursuit. 100% of the dollars raised by and for our neighbors fuel programs that address some of our community’s most pressing needs including:

  • Equity in education
  • Hunger relief
  • Access to mental health services
  • Workforce development
  • Youth development
  • Family support
  • And so much more!

We could not do this work without the generosity of neighbors like you! Please consider giving a gift to the ONEmetrowest Fund, or volunteering for ONEmetrowest Day on October 27. Together, let’s make a difference and create a stronger and more vibrant community for all.
