Advanced Proposal Writing

Nonprofit organizations often seek grant support but fall short in receiving the award. Learn how to present your case for support no matter the type or size of grant you are requesting. This session will sharpen your grantseeking skills by making your proposal more competitive. From an introduction to logic models to making your case for support using 2,000 or less characters, this workshop will help you prepare successful paper and paperless proposal narratives including those to the different levels of government. There will be a discussion on the use of meaningful charts and other visual aids to help reviewers quickly understand the intent of your proposed project. You will also learn techniques to use when preparing proposals to obtain grants for capacity-building projects and capital campaigns.

Massachusetts 401(k) CORE Plan for Small Nonprofits Webinar

Most people agree, offering a retirement plan to your employees is important. It's an effective way to help attract, retain, and reward key talent. Studies have shown that employees aren't likely to save on their own; they are much more likely to save through a workplace retirement plan – and they look to their employers to provide one.

The Commonwealth, appreciates all the great work nonprofits do across the state, and also know it can be difficult for small, nonprofits to find a quality, affordable retirement plan. That's why they created the Massachusetts 401(k) CORE Plan ("CORE"). If you have 20 or fewer W-2 employees, this Plan may be available to you. Join us at this webinar to learn about the CORE Plan!

Keeping or Getting Coverage through MassHealth and the Health Connector

MassHealth needs to renew coverage for all members to make sure they are still eligible and receive the best benefit they qualify for. Join staff from MassHealth as they explain what members need to do to update their information and how to renew their MassHealth coverage.

Some people may find out they don't qualify for MassHealth anymore, so staff from the Health Connector will explain how they could get coverage and may get help paying for it through the Health Connector.

FHS baseball tops St John's Shrewsbury 6-0 on Monday

"Move aside hamburgers and hot dogs. Take a seat macaroni and potato salad.  

On Monday, the top item on the Memorial Day menu for the Franklin High baseball team was soup.

The Franklin High junior left-hander, whose teammates call him “Soup” due to his last name, dished out a stellar performance on the mound as Campbell nearly collected a no-hitter in a dominating 6-0 win over Saint John’s (Shrewsbury) at Franklin High. "

INVITE: Mental Health Essentials for Parents and Caregivers - May 8, 2023

Mental Health Essentials for Parents and Caregivers - May 8, 2023

Please join me for a virtual presentation, Mental Health Essentials for Parents and Caregivers, delivered by experts from the Mental Health Collaborative (MHC), a Hopkinton-based nonprofit organization that serves educators, school districts, and families across the country with education on mental health literacy.

This free webinar aims to provide those with children, particularly in grades six through 12, the tools they need to understand their children's stress, identify emotional and behavioral health issues and their treatments, and empower them to obtain and maintain good mental health for their loved ones.

Live translation is available in Portuguese, Spanish, and American Sign Language (ASL). You can register for the event at

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


This event is the sixth year of my #MetroWestKids initiative which has offered programs related to mental health, including social-emotional learning (SEL) and related topics. As a former school committee member and social worker, I know the important role mental health plays in education. Last year, my priority legislation to deliver nation-leading reforms for mental health care in Massachusetts, the Mental Health ABC Act, was signed into law. This development could not come at a more critical time.

In MetroWest and across the state, parents have shared concerns with me about their children's mental health and their family's ability to access quality mental health care. This event will provide you with the tools you need to support your child or students. Knowing whether to worry and when, where, and how to get help is key. It's important that we overcome the stigma that has prevented too many of us from taking good care of our mental health for too long.

I hope you will find this presentation useful. Please contact my office at (617) 722-1500 if you have questions or for more information.

Warm Regards,
