The purpose of The Westford Charitable Foundation, Inc. is to raise and distribute funds to enrich the Westford community through support of all town activities with charitable, educational, cultural, and environmental initiatives.
As we celebrate hosting the 20th anniversary of the Westford Road Race, the Westford Charitable Foundation, Inc. would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the Westford Business Community for its outstanding support for the past 19 years. Through your generosity, we have raised close to $385,000 to date. With these funds, we have been able to identify and support many charitable causes in Westford and hope, with your support, to continue to enhance these efforts by hosting this year's race.
Funds raised have been used to alleviate hardship in the Westford community in numerous ways. The generosity of our supporters has helped fund medical assistance; provided appliances to a family displaced by a house fire; helped victims of violence and trauma get back on their feet; provided summer camp for children who experienced the death of a parent; provided a financial leg for struggling single mothers, and educational tutoring for children. Local support organizations that have also received assistance include Project Lifesaver for those with autism and Alzheimer’s; Project Interface, a mental health and wellness referral help line; and the Westford Police K-9 Program, to name a few. The Westford Charitable Foundation seeks to support those most in need and often does so in a quiet way, respecting the privacy of those who receive assistance.
This year’s race will be held on Sunday, May 5th, 2019 on the Historic Westford Town Common. Please join us as we continue to serve our community!
