Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $500 to $2,500 to Massachusetts nonprofits, public agencies, and individuals for projects, programs, and capital improvements that enhance the quality of life for residents of Williamstown. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to applying. Program areas include health and human services, cultural, educational, and recreational programs, and environmental protection.

The Fund for Williamstown is about making the community a better, more vibrant place to live. The fund supports proposals from both nonprofit organizations and individuals that will strengthen, enliven and enhance Williamstown. With an eye toward meeting the needs of a wide spectrum of residents, the fund awards grants for health and human services, cultural, educational and recreational programs and environmental protection. The fund is a catalyst for collaboration and for dynamic thinking about the community.

The fund is not a substitute for public support of the town’s operating and capital budget. Rather, it supports projects that go beyond what is needed to what is wanted—fostering services and programs that make Williamstown a truly unique place to live.
