About DTF

The Downtown Taunton Foundation was established in 2011 to promote the social,cultural, and economic revitalization of Downtown Taunton, Massachusetts. The Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is recognized by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a certified Community Development Corporation(CDC) for its service to the community.

The Downtown Taunton Foundation engages in projects and programs that promote the arts, strengthen small business, eliminate blight, create affordable housing, and improve overall quality of life in the Downtown neighborhood. The Foundation works in close partnership with the nonprofit Taunton Business Improvement District (BID), with which we share staff and office space.

The Trescott Street Gallery (TSG) was created in 2011 as part of a collaborative project to rehabilitate a vacant Downtown Taunton furniture warehouse into revitalized housing, office, and arts space.  The Gallery is managed by the DTF.  For more information about TSG and the programs and exhibits offered, visit trescottstreetgallery.org/.

Both DTF and TSG are located at 8 Trescott Street in Downtown Taunton.
