Founded in 1997, the Greater Lowell Community Foundation (GLCF) is dedicated to improving the quality of life in the Greater Lowell and Merrimack Valley regions of Massachusetts by:

  • Assisting donors to establish endowed funds serving their charitable interests.
  • Supporting nonprofit organizations and community groups through grants, fundraising support and education.
  • Improving the quality of life of our communities by connecting individuals and institutions.

The GLCF is deeply committed to our local nonprofit community and given the state of our economy our grants are focused on maintaining and expanding current programs. This year we have broadened our grant making categories in an effort to help as many nonprofits as possible by fostering connections, providing services, and being the voice and champion for philanthropy throughout the Greater Lowell and Merrimack Valley area. In all cases, the goal of the GLCF is to help our nonprofit partners accomplish their goals more effectively and efficiently. We strive to fund projects that touch many lives and enrich the overall quality of life in our region.
