The W. Scott Godon-Decoteau Fund was created at the non-profit Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts (CFWM) to ensure that Scott’s positive reach continues to grow. The mission of the fund is to provide resources and opportunities to causes that align with Scott’s interests and passions, including: arts and creativity; physical fitness and nutrition; learning, research and education; environmental protection and sustainability; fostering relationships and community; and helping under-served populations.
For 28 years the CFWM has promoted generosity by the community, for the community. Their mission is to enrich the quality of life of the people in Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Counties by encouraging philanthropy and
distributing those funds to nonprofits that serve our region. They are honored to hold the W. Scott Godon-Decoteau Fund as a vehicle for Scott’s family and friends to ensure that his legacy continues.
