The Dedham Savings Community Foundation recently donated $5,000 to the Dedham Choral Society.

The money will be used to fund programming support for upcoming performances.

The Dedham Savings Community Foundation was formed by Dedham Savings for the purpose of funding requests from community organizations which provide services to the communities that they serve. These communities generally, but not exclusively, include Dedham, Needham, Norwood, Sharon, South Boston, Walpole and Westwood. Typical requests are usually received from such organizations as schools, libraries, family service organizations and nonprofit organizations. The Trustees of the Foundation will accept grant requests from community organizations and make awards twice a year.

Organizations wishing to request funding from the Foundation may contact the Dedham Savings Community Foundation, 55 Elm St., Dedham, MA 02026, or call 781-329-6700 to obtain a grant application.
