The Foundation is pleased to announce a small capital grant opportunity for nonprofit organizations working to alleviate hunger or homelessness in Worcester County. This award has been made possible by an anonymous gift made through GWCF and is not intended for renewal.

The Foundation will award grants in the amount of $1,000 to $10,000 for small or mid-sized capital projects which lead to organizations being able to increase efficiency, serve more people, improve access, and/or make other capacity improvements. Examples may include: equipment or vehicle purchases; energy efficiency; security upgrades; technology purchases, accessibility upgrades and other modest capital expenditures. Grants may not be used for personnel, operating expenses, or routine material purchases.

Any qualified nonprofit public charity based in Worcester County with at least five years of successful operations serving people in need may apply. This is a special, one-time opportunity made possible by an anonymous gift through GWCF and is not intended for renewal.

Applications must be received by April 26, 2019. For more information, contact Sarah Shugrue, or (508) 755-0980 x109.
