About Us

Ours is a citizen-run model of philanthropy dedicated to enhancing the community in perpetuity. 

In establishing the Greater Worcester Community Foundation, our founders sought to develop an organization that engaged Worcester County in its own betterment. This neighborly experiment built on self-reliance embraces and engages diverse sectors united in their vision of a better Worcester.

In our first 40 years, we’ve used the simple, accountable and flexible model of the community foundation to build an endowment of $140 million, raise $125 million and distribute $96 million in grants. Each year, we continue to grow our resources—knowledge, relationships and funds—and do more for our community.
