How to Apply: Environment

Through its MetroWest Fund for the Environment, the Foundation for MetroWest awards discretionary grants that align with our belief that protecting and enhancing our region’s natural resources is fundamental to the well-being of our community. Over the years, our environmental grant-making has supported nonprofits working at the intersection of social and ecological issues. 

In particular, we seek to promote and support the conservation of the waters in our region, as water is essential to public health, to our natural ecosystems, and to sustaining a strong regional economy. Applications are not currently available.  Please check back in 2022 for more information.

Below is a list of 2021 grantees:

OARS – A multi-year grant to support the building and management of a new Climate Resiliency Coalition for municipalities across the SuAsCo watershed.

Charles River Watershed Association – A multi-year grant to support the continued work of the Charles River Climate Compact (CRCC) to promote sharing and collaboration on watershed-wide solutions.
