Medfield Foundation 2019 Summer Camp Fund Appeal
Adults and children throughout Medfield have happy memories of summer camp. From a traditional experience in the woods to skill building or specialized camps, many Medfielders cherish these summer camp experiences and the friends they made there…How would you feel if you were left out of this experience?
Before the summer camp season begins, the Medfield Foundation (MFi) board wants the town to know that there is a highly significant need for assistance by families whose children yearn to attend camp; however, due to difficult financial situations at home they would be unable to attend. It can be challenging to grow up in an affluent community and not have the same access to resources.
After first responding to a specific significant need 2 years ago, this fund has become a popular way for people with means to give back to their community. We are now in our 3rd year of the fund, and, like years past, are looking to raise $5000 to give all of our youth this joyful opportunity.
The Medfield Foundation encourages you to make a tax deductible donation to help Medfield children attend summer camp! There are easy ways to make your donation or to find out more:
- Send your check to the Medfield Foundation, ℅ Medfield Town House, 459 Main Street, Medfield MA 02052. Please make your check out to Medfield Foundation, Inc and then write “CAMP” in the memo line!
- Use this link to donate: http://medfieldfoundation.org/donate/

Did you know…
The Medfield Foundation (MFi) is a 100% volunteer run 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation whose mission is to enrich the lives of Medfield residents, build a stronger community, and facilitate raising and allocation of private funds for public needs in the town of Medfield. Since its inception in 2001, the Medfield Foundation has raised over $2 million to support community-wide initiatives in Medfield.
MFi was founded on the realization that some residents were interested in contributing more than town taxes to support projects and services that would enrich life in Medfield. Annual fundraising revenue varies each year as the initiatives and needs in the town change. You are urged to go to http://medfieldfoundation.org/.

The MFi Angel Run Team
Rose Colleran and Susan Weisenfeld (above) have co-chaired the Medfield Foundation Angel Run for many years, and today announced that they will do so for two more spectacular, family fun filled Angel Runs, this December 2 and in 2019.
Therefore, the Medfield Foundation is looking for someone interested in learning how to operate the Angel Run over the next fifteen months by apprenticing to these two pros, to learn the ropes, and to then take over running the Angel run to be held in early December 2020. The Angel Run is Medfield premier family fun event, and raises monies for Medfield families in need.
