The Boston Foundation, along with two other community foundations and The Philanthropic Initiative, have created a free, interactive resource to help people who give to charitable causes to understand more about how to maximize their philanthropy. Read more...

Many of you know that The Boston Foundation's core mission can be boiled down to providing answers and finding solutions. Well, with that in mind, you may recall that last month - July 2016 - TBF and WCVB-5 co-hosted a town hall-style forum and panel discussion on race relations and policing in Boston that aired live in primetime.
Here is a recap of that event.
But one question lingered: Many of you wanted to know the details behind the TBF-commissioned poll on race and policing in Boston, conducted by MassInc. We had already released the "topline" overview with results of the poll, but not the hard data crosstabs. Well, we heard you. So in one easily digestible place, here are the topline and crosstabs. Hope you find them informative.
A new report, prepared for Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Success Boston college completion initiative, shows a remarkable increase in both the percentage and the number of Boston Public Schools graduates who complete college within six years. The report also examines college completion for students with Success Boston coaches, a major intervention launched by the Boston Foundation and its partners, including the Boston Public Schools, in 2009.
Help the Boston Foundation have an impact by supporting these initiatives.

At the heart of everything the Boston Foundation has done over the last century—every grant it has made, every innovation it has supported, every cause it has championed—is its endowment, the Permanent Fund for Boston. Established through bequests left by hundreds of visionary and forward-thinking Bostonians since 1917, this essential fund fuels all of the Foundation’s work and provides the resources that have sparked positive change and enabled new ideas.
