What We Do

The Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts is a non-profit foundation that manages charitable funds established by individuals, families, businesses and other non-profit organizations. Our mission is to promote philanthropy in our region and to support philanthropists to invest in the communities and causes they care passionately about.

Individuals, families, corporations and non-profit organizations can contribute to the Foundation by making a gift to one of the existing funds or by establishing a named fund.

The Foundation, as a public charity, raises virtually all its resources from a broad cross-section of the public each year. It was formed as a way to allow people, regardless of financial resources, to contribute money to an endowment to benefit their communities or causes they care passionately about.

As a local non-profit organization, the Community Foundation is the perfect vehicle for people to give back to the community. It provides donors with a great deal of flexibility while maximizing tax advantages.

The Foundation also makes annual grants through a competitive process that solicits grant proposals from local nonprofits in the area of the environment, education and health.
