Our Partners

Foundation for MetroWest

An organization connecting philanthropic opportunity with demonstrated need in the Metrowest community. The Foundation for MetroWest is also a community foundation that supports family and private foundations and donor-advised funds to help communities respond to emerging issues and opportunities.  A Field of Interest Fund, the Path in the Woods Fund has been established to support our work-study internship program.

The Foundation for MetroWest through the generous support of The Fund for Wellesley has created a Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) program in Wellesley. A Path in the Woods Foundation is very pleased and honored to announce that we have received a grant from the Wellesley YIP program in the amount of $2,500 to support the Work-Study Internship program at Wellesley High School. The Fund for Wellesley serves as a permanent source of funding to foster innovation and collaboration in support of community needs and opportunities. The YIP program provides local youth the knowledge to become leaders in our community buy learning the importance of philanthropy and the needs that exist in our backyards. The photo below is from the YIP-Wellesley grant ceremonies held at the Wellesley Free Library on May 5, 2015.

Adolescent Wellness

Adolescent Wellness, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded to simplify prevention of mental illness and its most tragic symptom of suicide. Prevention is defined as addressing the protective factors and resilience as well as the risk factors that contribute to the development of mental illness.  Two of the resilience skills developed through our practical lessons are self awareness and communication, allowing earlier referral for treatment.
