Now Accepting Applications for Nonprofit Organizations Serving the Leicester Community

Greater Worcester Community Foundation is currently accepting grant applications for the Leicester Savings Bank Fund, a permanent charitable resource to benefit residents of Leicester, MA. The fund will supports projects that improve the quality of life and build a stronger community for Leicester residents of every age.

To receive funding, applicants must state how they will use the grant to do the following:

  • Make a positive difference for the Leicester community’s vulnerable citizens.
  • Improve Leicester community life through community development, education, recreation, the arts, or human services.
  • Attract other resources or secure matching funds from public or private sources. 

Any non-municipal association or nonprofit organization that serves residents of Leicester is invited to apply. Grants are available for capital expenditures (to acquire or renovate property or equipment) or for operating expenses of specific programs or projects undertaken by associations or organizations. The advisory committee is comprised of former trustees of Leicester Savings Bank and community members.

Applications must be received online by April 14, 2017. For more information, please contact Sarah Shugrue atsshugrue@greaterworcester.org or 508-755-0980.
