Area Funds are endowed funds that support nonprofits, invest in our impact areas, and respond to emerging needs in specific towns.

Each fund is led by a volunteer committee of residents with local ties and knowledge. They oversee fundraising, review applications based on published criteria and award grants annually with support and guidance from Berkshire Taconic staff.
