Who We Are and What We Do
Impact Framingham was formed from the funds received from the sale of 214 Concord Street, formerly known as the Civic League. The Civic League owned the building for nearly 100 years before they sold it a year ago to the Boston Church of Christ. The proceeds from the sale of the building have been set aside as a charitable fund that are being distributed as grants within the community. The organization is now known as Impact Framingham, with the goal of “investing in our community.” Holding true to the original mission of the Civic League, the purpose of the grants that will be given out by Impact Framingham will be to support projects which enhance the civic, educational, recreational, cultural and/or benevolent interests of Framingham and its people.
Impact Framingham is a foundation with the goal of investing in the Framingham community. To date we have awarded $80,000 to support programs and organizations that make a difference everyday in our community. Our grants have ranged in size from $400 up to $4000, with the average award approximately $1200, all with the goal of making the Framingham community stronger. Our past recipients have come from a diverse group of applicants and the grants were awarded for a wide variety of projects, and we look forward to another exciting round of applications in 2015 and in the future.
