Read the thoughts and impressions on a variety of topics written by Ann T. Lisi, President and CEO, and Chris O’Keefe, Vice President of Program, as well as occasional guest bloggers about what’s happening at Greater Worcester Community Foundation.


It is that wonderful time of year as we open the annual Fall Community Grants Program and begin the process of our largest cycle of grant review.

For many families in Central MA, summer activities can be costly. The good news is several Worcester non-profits offer plenty of free summer options to entertain and even educate children while giving parents' relief from their wallets.

Summer has arrived, and here at the Foundation, we are continuing our engagement with summer learning.

The Foundation’s scholarship program enables college-bound high school seniors to be considered for multiple opportunities through a single online application.

The message was clear to everyone at this year’s Annual Meeting: In order to grow our community here in Central Massachusetts, we must work together to build relationships, promote teamwork, and make an impact.

The Annual Meeting is a special gathering and a chance to highlight community progress, in the past year and over the longer term.

We share the sentiment of our partners and friends at the Worcester County Food Bank (WCFB) that food is a matter of societal justice.

To really understand the work of a nonprofit organization, nothing compares to a face-to-face visit, which is why we offer our Outreach & Education Site Visitors Program.

Our mission here at GWCF is to enhance the community, now and in the future, through philanthropic leadership. That inspiring generosity, wisely stewarding resources entrusted to us, and effective grant making.

As the first eight years of life are the most critical for human development, we have come to believe that what matters most are the types of environments that we create for children.
