MFi Legacy Fund Announces Local Grants
Medfield Foundation’s Legacy Fund announces grants to local non-profit organizations and a new $100,000 matching gift challenge opportunity through December 31, 2021
The Medfield Foundation’s Legacy Fund, an endowment fund created by the Medfield Foundation (MFi), has awarded grants to four local non-profit organizations, enabling them to fund important initiatives to benefit the Medfield community.
The new grants were awarded after the foundation received eleven proposals submitted requesting a total of $62,000. Six groups were invited to participate in a live “Pitch It!” event, and ultimately four were awarded a total of $28,200 in grants. The grant recipients include Medfield Outreach, the Peak House Heritage Center, Sustainable Medfield, and the Friends of the Medfield High School Theatre Society.https://ac1f38d33f43afec0b39381bbd3e3b71.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html
“The Medfield Foundation is committed to positively impacting the lives of all the town’s residents,” said Kirsten Poler, Medfield Foundation president. “We listened to the needs of the community as presented to us, and we are so pleased we’re able to make these grants. We look forward to growing our grants program through the Matching Gift Challenge so that we can meet more of our community needs in the future.”
“The committee was impressed with the thoughtful approaches that our four recipients displayed throughout the process,” said Legacy Fund Co-Chair Chris Cahill. “We envision these organizations continuing to foster initiatives that help to ensure Medfield remains a town of unique character and value to all residents.”
