Who We Are
MWNN is a small, nimble organization with a big impact. We are deeply connected to the nonprofit and public sectors in the MetroWest Boston area and play a vital role in nurturing connection and collaboration so that the individuals and communities of MetroWest can thrive. Guided by our values–connect, collaborate, strengthen, act- we’ve launched multiple new collaborations and programs in the last five years, including with:
- Service Enterprise Initiative to train 12 organizations in volunteer engagement
- Framingham State University to launch the Nonprofit Management Certificate Program, which in its first two years, has equipped 47 nonprofit leaders with the skills and connections to lead effective organizations
- MetroWest Health Foundation to facilitate the Voices of Our Community Project
- City of Framingham to provide an emergency food hotline at the height of the pandemic, which evolved into the MetroWest Food Collaborative
- Framingham State University Civic Engagement Center to place and support undergraduate interns in local nonprofits and facilitate collaborations between nonprofits and FSU faculty and staff
- Countless local professionals through Lunch & Learns, Affinity Groups and Lone Ranger
As the needs of the sector and community continue to shift, we are excited to see how these partnerships continue to evolve and what new ones will develop under our next Executive Director’s leadership.
