In 2003, a group of Watertown, Mass., residents formed the Watertown Community Foundation to create a fund "dedicated to sustaining a vibrant community," according to its website.
Fifteen years later, that community has grown to more than $3 million in grants, the foundation announced this week.
Among the projects the foundation has funded since its founding: a fund for Watertown's first Social Services Resource Specialist, a fund for the most vulnerable during the Great Recession, and a fund for organizations that help kids learn English, the Boston Globe reports.
"We've responded to emergency resources during times of crisis, building a Fund for MostVulnerable during the Great Recession and a Community Resilience Fund to meet need during the COVID-19," the foundation said in a statement.
"Today, people get the food they need and stay housed, arts, keep people learn English, and help people learn English, and the rich diversity of the community by continuing to bring together the community," the foundation's president says.
