2022 Community Leadership Reception

Join the Foundation for MetroWest at the 9th annual Community Leadership Reception as we officially launch the MetroWest Workforce Development Project, and celebrate our corporate community’s commitment to the MetroWest.

The MetroWest Workforce Development Project focuses on income inequality that persists in the MetroWest and provides a path to financial stability for under resourced youth and underemployed or unemployed adults. Hear from Executive Director Jay Kim as well as from some of our key nonprofit leaders on the initial programs we will fund through this project, and why this is critical for our region.

We will also honor the unwavering commitment of Middlesex Savings Bank as they receive this year’s Community Leadership Award, and Robert A. Vigoda, former Trustee and champion of the Foundation’s mission, as he is inducted into the Distinguished Advisor Society.

Thank you to Andrew Gallinaro of National Development and Rachel Marks of CBRE for their support co-chairing this event.
