Our People

The Greater Worcester Community Foundation is run by and for the community. Our staff and volunteer leadership live and work in Greater Worcester and understand its organizations, opportunities and needs.

Our board of directors, corporators and committee members are all volunteers and serve without compensation. Each is a community leader with a depth of private or public sector experience. We are fortunate to benefit from their expertise and talent. The 21 board members who provide the governance of the Foundation are elected annually by our corporators and serve four-year renewable terms. Corporators are elected to five-year renewable terms.

Our dedicated professional staff runs our operations and provides a breadth of services to our diverse constituents, including donors as well as our partners, including our region’s nonprofit organizations. Committed to community-building processes, our staff leads volunteers in evaluating grant proposals and reviewing the impacts of grants. They help donors meet their philanthropic goals, advise nonprofits on developing capacity and guide collaborations of all kinds.

The Corporator Enrollment Form is available for new and renewing corporators with terms beginning May 18, 2016. View the Roles and Responsibilities of a Corporator [PDF].
