Southborough – Founded in 2014, the Southborough Community Fund (SCF) awarded 10 grants totaling $30,000 in its first year. SCF is one of three town funds formed within the Foundation for MetroWest (FMW), of which Judy Salerno serves as executive director.
“One of the things the foundation does is assemble a group of people in their community to work on building local resources,” she explained. “We serve 33 cities and towns. We recognize that not everyone identifies with all of MetroWest; they do identify with their individual town, such as Southborough.”
