The MetroWest Free Medical Program is one of 33 local nonprofits awarded a ten-year grant from Cummings Foundation through its new Sustaining Grants program.
The Sustaining Grants program builds on Cummings Foundation’s $100K for 100 program, through which MWFMP received a 3-year grant from 2014-2017. Grant recipients that received those awards were then considered for the Sustaining Grants initiative in 2018.
“Long-term financial support is rare for nonprofits, making fundraising a constant and time-consuming task for organizations like the MetroWest Free Medical Program,” said Joyce Vyriotes, deputy director of Cummings Foundation. “The Sustaining Grants are intended to provide some relief, allowing them to focus more of their time and energy on delivering and enhancing their important services.”
The MetroWest Free Medical Program is grateful for this generous support that will allow us to think more strategically about how we can continue to provide access to quality health care for our neighbors in need. The grant funds will assure that we have a strong volunteer team and that those volunteers have the medical supplies and equipment to care for the patients who rely on us.
