The Plainville Community Fund was established at the Main Street Community Foundation by a group of Plainville leaders in early 2006 to create an additional resource for charitable projects and programs that would enhance the lives of Plainville residents. This is the sixth year that grants will be awarded from this fund. In 2012, $6,000 was distributed to five organizations to support educational and cultural programs at Plainville schools and nonprofit organizations, to support an event benefitting Plainville High School seniors and to provide food baskets for the holidays to residents in need.
