ONEmetrowest Fund

For over 27 years, we have united the MetroWest community to make the region a better place—today and for future generations. We couldn’t do this work without the support of generous neighbors like you.  

Neighbors help make a difference! 

The ONEmetrowest Fund, a fund supported by our neighbors for our neighbors, allows the Foundation to channel resources towards addressing some of the region’s most pressing issues. From providing hunger relief and fostering youth development to promoting equity in education and nurturing arts and culture, the ONEmetrowest Fund is a catalyst for positive change. For a quick glance into the work of the Foundation, take a minute to view the ONEmetrowest video.
