RESOURCES FOR non-profit organizations

  • MetroWest Emergency Relief Fund
    This fund was established to enable the rapid delivery of financial resources to MetroWest-based nonprofit organizations to serve our communities during broad-based emergencies, including natural disasters, financial crises, and public health emergencies. As the current COVID-19 pandemic deeply impacts our region and its residents, the Foundation will open a rolling rapid response grant program to provide operating grants to nonprofit organizations.

  • Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Program
    The Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Program was established by the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act, and amended by the American Rescue Plan Act. The program includes over $16 billion in grants to shuttered venues, to be administered by SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance. Eligible businesses include live venue operators, theatrical producers, live performing arts organization operators, museum operators, movie theater operators, and talent representatives. To be eligible, a business must have been in operation as of Feb. 29, 2020. Visit the grant portal here to access application information.
