Advantages to Partnering with Us

Cost-Free Resource for Charitable Planning.


For more than 35 years, the Greater Worcester Community Foundation has worked with professional advisors to help their clients with their charitable planning.

An Ego-Free Partner That Enhances Your Practice. 


The Foundation benefits from the strongest possible relationship between you and your client, so the Foundation will never eclipse your role, but rather enhance it. We can work entirely in the background, for example, until and unless you wish us to meet your client. Or, we can attend every meeting with you. Your choice.

Wealth of Resources.


You can stay informed through our annual newsletter, bi-monthly e-newsletter, professional gatherings, and the Planned Giving Design Center (PGDC). The PGDC is a 24-hour Web presence that provides a constantly updated compilation of federal charitable tax law geared just to you.

A Leader in the Field.


The Greater Worcester Community Foundation is one of the 30 largest foundations in Massachusetts and one of the 100 largest community foundations in the country. Our total assets exceed $120 million, we manage more than 450 funds entrusted to us by our donors, and we grant more than $4.5 million annually to nonprofits whose programs enhance life in our region.

Joe Stolberg, Chair of the PAN Committee at the Foundation.

“Our region has a significant asset in the Foundation,” says Joe Stolberg, the founding chair of PAN and Managing Partner of Stolberg, Ebbeling & Blanchette, LLP. “When clients put money in the Foundation, our clients and our community are well served.”             

“Our clients believe in us,” concludes Joe. “We believe in the Foundation. Everybody wins.”
