Massachusetts Community Foundations Partnership

A collaborative of community foundations, private and public foundations and individual donors that are pooling resources to achieve the following goals:

  1. Partner with Massachusetts nonprofit organizations to strengthen their missions, programs and capacities to contribute to and provide a leadership voice toward stabilizing, re-envisioning and rebuilding the nonprofit sector
    • Work will be achieved through education and training, hiring consultants, capacity building, and advocacy
  2. Connect and strengthen community foundations for greater impact (as leadership organizations, as advocates, and in effectiveness)
  3. Work together to deepen impact and lead on critical and common issues facing our communities and Massachusetts
    • Center the work with equity and racial justice at the forefront
    • Address Covid19 impact
