Eligible applicants provide services to the residents of Becket, Cummington, Dalton, Hinsdale, Peru, Washington, and Windsor.
The endowed fund serves as an ongoing resource that can look across town borders and combine resources to achieve maximum benefit for the residents of these towns. The Fund will provide support to nonprofit organizations and initiate projects to provide services that do not exist.
Projects that benefit the community in any of the following areas will be considered: arts and culture, education*, the environment, and health and social services.
*Education: one current area of focus for the fund is early childhood development. The Central Berkshire Fund’s intentions are to promote the well-being and overall development of young children in all areas, including cognitive, language, pre-literacy, social-emotional and physical, so that children are ready to learn when they enter kindergarten.
