The Clowes Fund, a family foundation, seeks to enhance the common good by encouraging organizations and projects that help to build a just and equitable society, create opportunities for initiative, foster creativity and the growth of knowledge, and promote appreciation of the natural environment.
The 2012-2013 Grant Cycle is closed. The Clowes Fund is currently undergoing strategic planning and a complete review of its grantmaking priorities including both geographic and fields of interest. Please check back in September for the Fund's 2013-2014 guidelines. We will welcome appropriate queries this fall.
CONNECT is a new model for building community economic security. By integrating, in one central and supportive location, resources to address the community's financial, educational, employment, and housing needs, CONNECT addresses the needs of the residents of Chelsea, Massachusetts and surrounding communities. The six partner agencies of CONNECT do so while nurturing social networks - "Success Teams" - to provide the glue and sustenance for each low-income individual and family's journey toward economic security.
