Community Foundation Of Western Massachusetts Speeds Financial Help To Local Nonprofits

Community Foundation of Western Mass.

     Since the start of the pandemic, the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts has given almost $12 million in grants to more than 180 nonprofits in Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin counties.

    Much of the money of late has gone to community organizations and agencies with programs that help individuals and families with housing, food, and mental health services.

       The Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund for the Pioneer Valley has received contributions from more than 700 donors and $4.4 million from the statewide Massachusetts COVID-19 Relief Fund.  

    WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Katie Allan Zobel, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
