Community Fund for Wellesley COVID-19 Relief Fund

The Community Fund for Wellesley COVID-19 Relief Fund was established with an initial gift of $10,000 from the Community Fund for Wellesley. This initial gift was used to ensure an immediate source of grant support in the town. Since April 2020, the Wellesley COVID-19 Relief Fund has granted $125,000 thanks to generous donations from many Wellesley residents and the business community.

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.

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.
