FAQs for Donors

How can I Give?

You may give online; send a check to Foundation for MetroWest (note if it is for the MW Emergency Fund or the Feed Framingham Fund on the check), 3 Eliot Street, Natick, MA 01760; or make a gift of securities and other assets by contacting Mary Crowley.

Can I make a grant from an existing donor-advised fund into an Emergency Fund?

Yes. Anyone can make a grant from a donor-advised fund to these emergency funds.  If you have a donor-advised fund at the Foundation, you can log into Donor Central to make a fund transfer, or contact Mary Crowley if you have questions. If you have a donor-advised fund at another institution, you can recommend a grant from that fund to the Foundation for MetroWest and note if your gift is for the “MW Emergency Relief Fund” or the “Feed Framingham Fund” in the purpose language.

How much of my donation will go directly to organizations working to support vulnerable populations in MetroWest?

 One hundred percent.
