Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to support operations in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to help local organizations continue providing programs and services that improve the quality of life in Williamstown.

While the fund has traditionally supported projects and programs, this one-time opportunity will provide unrestricted general operating support funding to help established nonprofits continue to achieve their mission and impact and allow for planning and recovery. These grants are flexible and allow funds to support an organization’s ongoing administrative and infrastructure costs and to maintain existing, effective programs. Services and programs include those that improve the quality of life in Williamstown, and especially those that address critical needs such as food/housing, health care (including mental health care) and child care.
