    b. Explore and gain skills in collaboration and technology, such as operations and management with Westborough.com itself.

We have a strong commitment to music and the arts, and dedicate at least 10% of our advertising revenue (in addition to in-kind donations) to local or regional cultural endeavors.

 

Last revised:
27 March 2010 - formally commit in writing to our on-going interests in supporting music & the arts in Westborough and our local region.
7 March 2010 - changed intent of 1b. from "providing a forum" to "promote online community", in recognition of the Westborough Civic Issues Forum becoming available.  That forum is NOT hosted by Westborough.com and actually falls under the aegis of the non-profit "E-Democracy.org".
