What if You Could Help a Neighbor in Need?


The neighbor who -


  • Lost her job and is now struggling to put food on the table for her family
  • Wishes to provide cultural opportunities for his children, but doesn't have the resources to pay for music lessons or a visit to a local museum
  • Just lost his wife and is alone trying to find support


If we don't help our neighbors, who will?  When planning your year-end giving, please consider donating to our annual Holiday Appeal.  Thank you.

Leave Your Legacy

More than 80 percent of Americans contribute to nonprofits of their choice throughout their lifetimes.  But according to research, only 7 - 8% of people chose to continue that support through a charitable bequest.  Imagine the immeasurable impact we would create if we all remembered a local nonprofit or cause in our will.  

Amy Axelrod, Director of Institutional Advancement, to discuss how you can become a member of our MetroWest Legacy Society.
