The Medfield Foundation, Inc. ("MFi") is Medfield's community foundation created in 2001 to raise private monies for public purposes in the Town of Medfield. The Medfield Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation whose mission is to facilitate the raising of private funds for major public needs or infrastructure in the Town of Medfield, with an emphasis on significant projects and capital expenditures to improve the quality of life for all Medfield residents. It was created and is run by volunteers. Under the auspices of its 501(c)(3) status, MFi assists with the monetary administration and legal compliance required with fundraising. To date this entirely volunteer run entity has raised over $1.4 million.
The MFi's plethora of funds allows each donor to target their donation to the specific community initiative or to the general category that they want to support. Donors can designate donations to particular town needs. The monies raised to date have paid for the High School evergreen football field, the Dale Street School playground and outdoor classroom, the High School track and bleachers, college scholarships and funds to support Medfield residents in need, the Medfield Night Fireworks, the Council on Aging bus, the Middle School auditorium lighting and sound system, and provided general support to FOSI (Friends of Seniors, Inc.), the Center at Medfield (Medfield's Adult Community Center), the Medfield Youth Outreach workers, the Medfield Youth Community Collaborative, the Zullo Gallery, a skateboard park, Friends of Medfield Theatre Society, Medfield Animal Shelter, Saw Mill Conservatory, Gazebo Players, Lowell Mason House, Medfield High School Athletics, Veterans Recognition Fund, Spring/Fall Fests and the Friends of Recreation.
Since the Medfield Foundation is entirely volunteer run, almost all (currently 99%) of each contribution is delivered to supported projects. If you have an idea that requires fundraising that would benefit from association with MFi, please Contact Us by mail or email.
In addition, MFi now runs the Medfield Foundation Angel Run each December as both a fundraiser and a fun event for the community. MFi also created and runs the annual Volunteer Awards program to recognize Medfield citizens with outstanding volunteer committments.
