The Foundation's mission is to effect permanent positive change in the lives of individuals and families across Greater Boston, especially in economically disadvantaged communities. They invest in organizations that improve human health, raise educational attainment, increase economic security, and meet community needs.
Having deep roots in the Boston area, we are committed to responding to a wide range of community needs and to improving the quality of life for people of all ages. Grants are offered for one-time capital expenses that strengthen a nonprofit’s ability to serve its clients and achieve its mission. Requested items may include vehicles, furniture/equipment, technology, facility improvements, and other durable assets.
Agencies working in any mission area may apply. Organizations focused on human services, youth development, or economic mobility have historically had higher funding rates.
