The Medfield Foundation (MFi) Legacy Fund Board of Directors has announced the donation of grants, totaling $20,000, to three nonprofits serving the Medfield community. The Legacy Fund is an initiative of the Medfield Foundation that invests in local non-profits that build a strong and vibrant community.
The first grants awarded by the Legacy Fund, founded in 2016, were celebrated at a festive reception in late 2018. Grant recipients include: the Cultural Alliance of Medfield, Friends of Medfield Rail Trail, and Medfield Cares About Prevention. Funds granted will help construct the Medfield Rail Trail, contribute to efforts to develop an arts center at the former Medfield State Hospital property, and support community-based efforts to prevent youth substance abuse.
“We are honored to support these outstanding and committed Medfield organizations with grants made possible by the generosity of Medfield donors, in particular our Legacy Fund Founders,” says Christopher Cahill, a Medfield resident since 1998, and co-chair of the Medfield Foundation Legacy Fund.
Medfield residents interested in giving where they live may make a tax-deductible donation to the Legacy Fund, or contact Info@MedfieldFoundation.org to explore joining its Board of Directors.
