Grants of up to $25,000 and grants of up to $50,000 to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations for programs to benefit the community in eligible regions. Funding areas of interest include families, health and wellbeing, and local arts and culture. Priority will be given to projects that emphasize racial equity and inclusivity. Funding is intended to benefit Worcester County.
The Community Grant Program is rooted in the belief that a more equitable, vibrant and just community can be worked towards collectively by offering flexible grant options, implementing strategic focus areas, and emphasizing the underlying approaches nonprofit organizations apply to their work.
GWCF has been on a learning journey to better understand how to leverage and streamline resources entrusted to us to make the most meaningful impact in our communities. These strategic areas – Health & Wellbeing, Thriving Families, and Creative Worcester – have emerged as the current priorities, and will be continuously honed.
The Foundation seeks to partner with grantees with a commitment to Racial Equity, Community Voice, and Policy & Systems, as defined on the URL for Full Text below.
