25th Anniversary Grant Program

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, MathWorks and the Foundation for MetroWest have adapted and accelerated the 25th Anniversary Grant Program to provide immediate support.

Originally slated to provide $250,000 in funding to a select few non-profit organizations chosen through a community voting process, the 25th Anniversary Grant program is instead delivering $5,000 grants to each of the 57 eligible MetroWest-serving nonprofits who submitted a video application, increasing the total amount awarded to $285,000.

While there will be no community vote, we wanted to share the big ideas and the amazing work happening all around us. Please enjoy the videos created by our nonprofit partners across the region.
