Please consider Donating to the Medfield COVID-19 Resiliency Effort.

As the Local Foundation serving our town, the Medfield Foundation, Inc. (MFi) has launched an effort to provide grants to residents who are experiencing significant financial challenges caused by the COVID-19 public health emergency.

The MFi Public Need Fund is the vehicle through which the Medfield Foundation allocates money to support the public need in town. Donations made directly to the Public Need Fund benefit local residents who find themselves in difficult circumstances and who need a helping hand. On an annual basis, the funds available to address the needs of the community are raised through the generosity of the extended Medfield community (you!) who volunteer and participate in the annual Medfield Foundation Angel Run.

Due to the current unprecedented COVID-19 public health emergency, many in our community are experiencing financial hardships due to lack of income, lack of childcare, more people in the home that need to be fed, and so many other issues. We anticipate that the needs will significantly outpace our current resources.

The Public Need fund helps Medfield residents who are experiencing temporary financial set backs. It is for residents who, usually through no fault of their own, are experiencing financial hardship due to health matters, sudden deaths, job loss, etc. The money is used as a bridge so they can transition from one situation to the next without losing their homes, services, etc. The money in the past has been used for rent, electric bills, car repairs, medical bills, and more. It is for temporary emergency situations. The requests are vetted upon receipt and if they fit our criteria, we pass the requests on to two social workers and a member of the clergy and the three of them administer the funds.

100% of all funds donated to the Public Need Fund go to the public need cause. If you use Network for Good, they take a small percentage for transaction fees. If you send a check, there is no administrative fee. All donations are 100% tax deductible under the law.

In order to meet the immediate local need it is our hope that generous donors will join us to support the good work being done during these challenging and uncertain times by making a donation. Information on how to donate can be found online at https://www.medfieldfoundation.org/give.
