Our Objectives

We work with donors to increase the impact of their giving and, using our own resources, programs and activities, support thriving people and vibrant places with a strategic focus on:
Massachusetts United for Puerto Rico/Massachusetts Unido por Puerto Rico

Boston United for Puerto Rico Fund

In partnership with The Latino Legacy Fund

The Boston Foundation has agreed to champion this effort free of charge. The money raised will be invested in three areas: disaster relief, sustainable rebuilding and capacity building for NGO’s in Massachusetts, as a substantial migration of Puerto Ricans to Boston and throughout the Commonwealth is expected in the months ahead. Up to one-third will be immediately distributed for relief efforts, and another third will be deployed over two years to support reconstruction and economic recovery projects that are sustainable in the long term. The final third will support relocation efforts in the Commonwealth.

Una colaboración entre The Latino Legacy Fund

Puerto Rico flagLa Fundación Comunitaria de Boston aportará sus servicios de manera gratuita. Los fondos recaudados se invertirán en tres áreas: manejo de desastres, reconstrucción sustentable y apoyo a organizaciones no gubernamentales en Massachusetts, en previsión a la llegada de refugiados puertorriqueños al estado. Un tercio del fondo irá a esfuerzos de alivio; otro tercio se destinará durante dos años para proyectos de reconstrucción y recuperación económica que sean sustentables a largo plazo; el último tercio se dedicará a brindar apoyo a los esfuerzos de reubicación de boricuas en el estado de Massachusetts.
