Impact & Initiatives
Greater Worcester Community Foundation is uniquely poised to support the leadership pipelines for the nonprofit and social service sectors. Through a mix of workshops, trainings and learning cohorts, we seek to develop and strengthen local leaders who work to further nonprofit organizations and promote philanthropy.
Business of Art
Individual artists are essential to a vibrant arts and culture ecosystem, but developing a successful creative career has unique challenges. That's why GWCF is teaming up with MASS MoCA's Assets for Artists to offer The Business of Art, a 6-month cohort program providing Worcester artists of color, or those who identify as low to moderate income, with the entrepreneurial support they need to grow and thrive in the post-pandemic cultural sector.
Youth for Community Improvement
Youth for Community Improvement (YCI) promotes civic leadership through a 12 week teen led experience resulting in grants to local nonprofits working in areas of high importance to young people.
