During our 25th Annual Meeting on Tuesday July 7th, we announced that the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts is now the SouthCoast Community Foundation. Our new name reflects the momentum, excitement, and aspirations of this region, as well as a growing sense of regional identity.

Over the past year, our Board, with significant input from many of you in our community, has embraced the energy, excitement, potential, and self-defining spirit that is the SouthCoast. This does not change our mission to mobilize philanthropy by matching donors and resources with community needs for the benefit of our region, nor does it change the region we serve – stretching from Cuttyhunk up to Stoughton, from Plymouth over to North Attleboro – nor does it affect the services we provide – but it does embrace the spirit of renewal and vitality of our work.

Now more than ever, we need a Community Foundation that truly serves the needs of this unique part of Massachusetts. We are proud to be that for all of you.
