How to Apply: Environment

Through its MetroWest Fund for the Environment, the Foundation for MetroWest awards discretionary grants that align with our belief that protecting and enhancing our region’s natural resources is fundamental to the well-being of our community. Over the years, our environmental grant-making has supported nonprofits working at the intersection of social and ecological issues. 

In particular, we seek to promote and support the conservation of the waters in our region, as water is essential to public health, to our natural ecosystems, and to sustaining a strong regional economy.
