After getting bombarded with deals and advertising for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a day for giving back.

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.

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.

Throughout Massachusetts and across the Country, youth are engaging with each other and their communities in different and new ways that broaden their philanthropic understanding.

There’s a lot of work that goes into identifying the right interventions on a community level. Fortunately, Worcester County enjoys a strong network of thoughtful and strategic nonprofit organizations committed to doing what works -- mobilizing people, learning from practice, and working collaboratively with others.

There is an African proverb which reads, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
