Get-to-Know Funders: Western Massachusetts

Join Philanthropy Massachusetts for Get-to-Know Funders: Western MA! These programs were formerly known as Meet-the-Donors.

We're thrilled to be going out to Western MA as we welcome a blockbuster panel of funders with an interest in programs/organizations that benefit the Western MA region.

The team includes:


Paul Belsito, Executive Director, The Irene E. and George A. Davis Foundation


Megan Burke, President/CEO, Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts

Amihan Matias, Senior Director of Community Partnerships, Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts

Bethany Kendall, Executive Director, Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund

Madeline Landrau, Director of Strategic Giving Community Responsibility, MassMutual

Vanessa Plant, Executive Director, The ALKU Foundation  

Nancy Reiche, Board Director, The Beveridge Family Foundation

The "Get-to-Know" series is great for those who are new to grantseeking as well as seasoned pros. You'll learn about the specific interests of each foundation represented on the panel and pick up some tips for how to be effective in seeking grants generally. Plus, it's a great time to network with your fellow nonprofit colleagues.

We hope to see you there!
