Make an impact. Leave a Legacy!
The Medfield Foundation (MFi) is a 100% volunteer run 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation whose mission is to enrich the lives of Medfield residents, build a stronger community, and facilitate the raising and allocation of private funds for public needs in the town of Medfield.
Youth Leadership Grant Program
The Youth Leadership Grant Program is our call for ideas that will enrich the lives of those who call Medfield home.
The MFi Youth Leadership is a program created by the Medfield Foundation, Inc. (MFi). Medfield is known as a community with a strong sense of philanthropy and volunteerism. From an early age, the town’s youngest residents have opportunities to make a difference in their community. Those opportunities continue to grow as children come of age in our town. It was a natural progression that the Medfield Foundation, the umbrella organization for many local volunteer fundraising initiatives, would establish a program where high school students could take that philanthropic spirit, run with it and gain leadership experience in the process. Just as the Medfield Foundation has it’s Legacy Fund endowment and it’s Pitch It! Grant Program, the youth leadership team has created the Youth Leadership Grant Program and has raised $1000 in the fall of 2022 and is ready to give it away to a program or cause in the town of Medfield this spring. For our inaugural round of grant making, we have up to $1000 in funding to award, which may be divided among one to four recipients.
