Getting Started is Simple
With a $10,000 gift, you can create your own charitable fund with the Greater Worcester Community Foundation. Establish your fund in your name or the name of your family—or let its name honor a cherished person, group or cause. All grants from your fund will carry its name, now and in the future.
We are a 501(c)(3) public charitable corporation and all contributions are fully tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. The Foundation's federal identification number is: 04-2572276. We do all the administration—including investing, grant making and reporting—sparing you expense, work and worry.
