The John R. Heerwagen Award for Non-profit leadership was recently announced at the 2018 Grant Awards Presentation. This year's award recipient is Marc Jacobs, CEO, Jewish Family Services (JFS) of MetroWest. A one-time grant of $15,000 was presented to Lino Covarrubias, COO, on behalf of Jacobs, and will be used in a manner that Jacobs believes will benefit the JFS of MetroWest.

The annual award, established in 2016, recognizes a strong, non-profit leader whose work has significantly benefited the lives and wellbeing of residents within the Foundation's community. It reflects the support John R. Heerwagen, former CEO of Middlesex Savings Bank, provided to the Foundation and its efforts to help strengthen local non-profits, and his belief in the importance of leadership, and the need to develop and recognize strong leaders.
