Project Support:

Projects for which support is sought should benefit people who live or work in the region. While preference is given to organizations primarily serving the aforementioned cities and towns (the community), the Board will also consider funding for programs which reach a broader, more regional area, as long as such area incorporates the community.


Organizations may apply for funding from the Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation only once per calendar year. Organizations whose proposals are rejected in one calendar year may reapply the following calendar year. Organizations whose proposals are funded, even partially, may not reapply until the second calendar year after the year in which they were approved.


Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation will not fund political or sectarian activities. Additionally, it will not fund organizations which utilize a fiscal agent.
