It’s Community Foundation Week, November 12-18!

The Foundation for MetroWest is proud to join in a nationwide celebration, November 12-18, 2022, to recognize the increasingly important role that community foundations play in strengthening our region.

Community Foundation Week was created in 1989 by former president George H.W. Bush to recognize the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to address community problems.

Since 1995 the Foundation for MetroWest has ben providing financial and educational resources to local nonprofit organizations, sharing essential data about the region to inform decisions, and partnering with donors to help guide and align their giving with the areas of greatest need in the community.

Community foundations are independent, public entities that steward philanthropic resources from institutional and individual donors to local nonprofits and represent one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy.
