Summary

Community Grants support nonprofit organizations that build healthy and vibrant communities throughout Central Massachusetts. 

Foundation is now accepting applications for its Community Grant program. Community Grants support nonprofit organizations that build healthy and vibrant communities throughout Central Massachusetts. Last year, the Foundation awarded more than $1.4 million in Community Grants to 137 nonprofit organizations. 

Community Grants are made possible by donors who have set up endowment funds with the Foundation for this purpose, with grant amounts typically ranging from $2,500 to $25,000. Areas of interest this year include Civic Life, the Arts and the Environment; Early Childhood Development; Economic Security; Healthy Communities; Youth Development & Education. Organizations located in the Greater Worcester area that are engaging local partners or building local capacity will be preferred. 

For those new to the Foundation or seeking a refresher, the Foundation will be hosting orientation sessions about the Community Grant Program over the summer. Sessions will be held Thursday, July 26 from 9-10:00am; Wednesday, August 1 from 4-5:00pm; and Tuesday, August 21 from 12-1:00pm. All sessions will be held at the Foundation at 350 Main Street in Worcester, and program staff will be present to take questions. Sign up can be found on the Community Grant Program page on the Foundation website.

Applications must be received by September 15, 2018. For questions, email Jonathan Cohen at jcohen@greaterworcester.org or call 508-755-0980.
