Greater Worcester Community Foundation Inc.



The communities of greater Worcester have long been noted for the generosity of their citizens, both in philanthropy and community service. To ensure the constancy of this legacy, a group of citizens founded Greater Worcester Community Foundation in 1975 to be a permanent resource for changing needs.


They formed a public charitable corporation with a mission to increase philanthropy and build healthy and vibrant communities throughout Central Massachusetts.
