As Greater Boston's community foundation, the Boston Foundation devotes its resources to building and sustaining a vital, prosperous city and region, where justice and opportunity are extended to everyone. We fulfill this mission in three principal ways:
-Making grants to nonprofit organizations and designing special funding initiatives to address the community's critical challenges;
-Working in partnership with donors and other funders to achieve high-impact philanthropy; and
-Serving as a civic hub and center of information, where ideas are shared, levers for change identified, and common agendas for the future are developed.
