MFi Legacy Fund Grant Applications due by Friday

The Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund has announced that applications are now being
accepted for its 2023 Community Impact Grants. Up to $30,000 in grants will be
awarded, and any Medfield-based nonprofit or Town department is eligible. Applicants
are welcome to submit a grant request online at by
March 17, 2023.
The Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund Community Board will review all submissions
and select the finalists who will be invited to PITCH IT!, a Shark Tank-type event to be
held in person on April 12, 2023. At PITCH IT!, applicants will present their proposal,
goals, and financial needs and directly engage with the Community Board on their
projects. The Community Board will make its final selection of grant recipients for the
2023 funding round in early May, 2023.
This year marks the third round of Legacy Fund Community Impact grants. To date,
over $48,000 has been awarded to seven organizations, including the Cultural Alliance
of Medfield, the Friends of the MHS Theatre Society, the Friends of the Medfield Rail
Trail, Medfield Cares About Prevention, Medfield Outreach, The Peak House Heritage
Center, and Sustainable Medfield.
Grantees have used their awards to further important projects in Medfield and, in some
cases, to leverage significant additional resources such as matching grants or federal or
state funding. This year’s applicants should be prepared to illustrate a strong and
compelling current need for funds, and possibly present how those funds may generate
additional investments in the Medfield community as well.
Act fast to take advantage of this spectacular opportunity!
