Igniting the Spark: Foundation for Metrowest

The Foundation for MetroWest, based in Natick, Massachusetts, has been committed to educating the next generation of community leaders through the Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) program since 1997. In that time, over 900 youth from MetroWest communities have funded nearly $700,000 in grants that support youth. This case study describes their history of youth engagement and programming, and new strategies they are pursuing to engage youth in the communities they serve.
