Print More

The Watertown Community Foundation (WCF) announced two Spring 2018 grant programs to support local nonprofits, programs and projects. Approximately $55,000 will be distributed.

One: WCF’s Program Grants will award grants designed to help organizations that serve Watertown develop new or continue existing programs with an educational focus (broadly defined). These are programs that operate outside of the Watertown’s public schools.

Two: WCF’s Institutional Grants are designed to help institutions central to the Watertown community by providing funds to maintain critical programming and retain paid staff. Grants under this program impose neither restrictions on the use of funds nor any program requirements.

Eligible organizations may apply for a maximum of $3,000 for program grants and a maximum of $5000 for institutional grants. All of the grants will be funded by the Foundation’s Watertown Arsenal Education Fund.

The application deadline for both grant programs is April 20, 2018. Eligibility information and application forms for both grant programs are available on WCF’s website: www.watertownfoundation.org. You may email questions to
