Community Fund for Wellesley COVID-19 Relief Fund
Grants have been used for a multitude of items and programs, including Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), meals for neighbors who otherwise would not have access, technology for elderly neighbors to connect to their loved ones, a summertime ‘COVID-safe’ mobile movie theater, support for remote education, mental health resources, youth employment and and many other essentials during this time.
As we approach the year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is our intention to continue serving as a resource for Wellesley neighbors. The pandemic has brought tremendous challenges to our community, but it is clear that we are stronger when we all come together. We invite Wellesley-based organizations to submit proposals; grants will be awarded on a rapid and rolling basis.
This fund is a partnership between The Community Fund for Wellesley, an endowed fund of the Foundation for MetroWest, a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization, and the Wellesley Select Board, that addresses unmet needs in our community resulting from the ongoing Coronavirus crisis.
