Happy Monday! We’ve just released our 2024-2025 RFP timeline for MSA’s state-funded Commonwealth Corps program. Since Commonwealth Corps’ inception, MSA has been proud to invest nearly $7 million into organizations across Massachusetts through state funding — and we’re hoping that you’ll help us make the 2024-2025 service year our best one yet!
If your organization is interested in learning more, please register for the info session on 11/27!
What is Commonwealth Corps?
Through our Commonwealth Corps initiative, MSA partners with nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and public agencies to reinvigorate civic involvement and help address the Commonwealth's most critical needs.
With either 2-4 full-time members or 2-6 half-time members, Commonwealth Corps is a smaller commitment for organizations than our AmeriCorps programs — so if you’ve been thinking of hosting service members help advance your organization’s mission, Commonwealth Corps could be a great place to start! Learn more here, or register for the upcoming 11/27 info session here.
Member Highlight: Cameron Gill
Since June, Cameron Gill (also featured in this email’s header photo!) has supported the REC School Gardens Program as a Commonwealth Corps member while simultaneously getting her Master's degree in Community Development and Planning from Clark University.
“Working alongside Cam has been such a joy; she brings attention to detail, creativity and kindness to every project she's working on. The mini-markets and garden plantings we've been facilitating this fall have gone so smoothly, so much so because Cam has been working the behind-the-scenes magic. She even coordinated a garden clean-up at Jacob Hiatt Magnet School with her Clark Volleyball Team!”
Huge shoutout to Cam for being an awesome Commonwealth Corps member, and to Gwen from the Regional Environmental Council for highlighting her!
