Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts
The Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts grew out of a passion to want to build a better community. North Central Massachusetts has proven to be a compassionate and caring community - working together to make the region a better place to live for today and future generations.
The concept for a regional foundation was born out of a small, but committed United Way of North Central Massachusetts committee looking at ways to further build overall philanthropy giving. The success enjoyed by United Way through their Leadership Giving program demonstrated the capacity and desire for our very own Community Foundation, which would allow the individuals, families, businesses and agencies to establish permanent endowments to benefit the community forever.
