MFi Legacy Fund grant making announced

MEDFIELD FOUNDATION LEGACY FUND NOW ACCEPTING GRANT APPLICATIONS


The Community Board that operates the Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund announced today that applications are now open for their second round of grants. Any Medfield-based nonprofit is eligible and welcome to submit a grant request online at www.medfieldfoundation.org/legacy-fund by October 15, 2021.

The Community Board will review all submissions and select the finalists who will be invited to a Shark Tank-type event (PITCH IT!) in October where they can present their projects, goals, and financial needs. The final selection of grant recipients will be made by the Community Board in early November.

The initial round of Legacy Fund grants was made two years ago, with monies awarded to the Cultural Alliance of Medfield (CAM) ($10,000), the Friends of the Medfield Rail Trail ($5,000), and Medfield Cares About Prevention (MCAP) ($5,000). CAM is using its grant to create the Cultural Arts Center at the former Medfield State Hospital; the Medfield Rail Trail has started construction of its new multipurpose trail; and MCAP hired a grant writer who succeeded in garnering a five-year, $625,000 Federal SAMSA drug prevention grant.

This year’s grant candidates should be prepared to illustrate a strong and compelling current need for funds, and possibly present how those funds may be leveraged in some material way, as illustrated above.

Time is running out to submit an application, so local non-profits are encouraged to act fast to take advantage of this spectacular opportunity.

ABOUT THE MEDFIELD FOUNDATION LEGACY FUND

The Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund is a professionally-managed endowment created to support community-driven projects. Volunteer-run and designed to complement the initiatives of Medfield organizations, the Legacy Fund raises funds from the community and makes grants to established non-profit organizations through a competitive process.
For more information or to contribute to the Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund, please visit www.medfieldfoundation.org/legacy-fund.

Medfield Outreach showing film about suicide at MHS Wednesday, 9/27 at 7PM

From Medfield Outreach –

My Ascension: A Documentary Film and Movement to Spread Hope and Fight Suicide

WHEN: Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 7:00 pm

WHERE: Medfield High School Auditorium


WHAT/WHY:
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. In order to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of talking about mental health and suicide, the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention (MCSP), a Medfield Foundation initiative, is hosting a screening of the film “My Ascension”, which documents the true story of a young woman who survived a suicide attempt. A panel discussion of mental health professionals will follow the film. This event is intended for adults and high school students and is not recommended for anyone under the age of 14.

REGISTRATION: https://forms.gle/EERgi3daPtswRG679   

SYNOPSIS:
A suicide attempt left 16-year-old varsity cheerleader, Emma Benoit, paralyzed, but propelled her on a mission to use her painful experience to help others find hope and shine more light on the fact that 20 young people die every day by suicide in the in the United States. My Ascension is a feature-length documentary that chronicles Emma’s inspiring journey and quest to walk again, as she works to bring Hope Squad, a school-based suicide prevention program, to Louisiana. The film also highlights the stories of two remarkable young people who tragically did not survive their attempts, and we learn first-hand from their families, friends, school officials, and suicide prevention experts about the devastating effects of suicide and what can be done to prevent it.

COST: This event is being offered free to the community. We kindly request donations to MCSP (click the registration link to see options for donations) if resources permit. No one will be denied participation based on inability to donate.

Questions? Contact Medfield Outreach at medfieldoutreach@medfield.net or at (508) 359-7121

**NOT RECOMMENDED FOR STUDENTS YOUNGER THAN HIGH SCHOOL AGED**

Housing Production Plan re-issued

The Town of Medfield’s Housing Production Plan needs to be keep up to date for the town to keep its current on its affordable housing plans, and also to keep its 40B safe harbor status. The town has a new draft of the Housing Production Plan that Sarah Raposa, Town Planner shared last week via an email.

I personally think the town should explore rezoning to permit accessory dwelling units (ADU’s) – small extra units on existing lots.

The draft of the Housing Production plan is available for public review and will be presented on September 21, 2021 to the Board of Selectmen, Planning Board, and Affordable Housing Trust and the public is invited to attend or view via zoom or Medfield TV.

The Plan will subsequently need to be adopted by the Board of Selectmen and the Planning Board and sent to DHCD for final approval.
