Community Foundation of Middlesex County's mission is to improve the quality of life for the people of the County now and in the future by developing endowments, making grants that have impact, and assisting donors in meeting their philanthropic objectives. In 1997, community leaders from across Middlesex County established our Community Foundation dedicated to enhancing and improving the quality of life in the area. We assist donors in meeting their charitable objectives through the creation of restricted and unrestricted endowments during their lifetime or through planned gifts. Income from these endowments and donations provided specially for grant making are used to award grants to nonprofit organizations that have a positive impact on the community.
