If you were to walk down the street and ask passers-by what foundations do, you’d likely variations on the response “They give away money.” We know we do much more, but we are proud of the $100 million the Boston Foundation gives away each year, through the Permanent Fund for Boston and hundreds of other funds.
But while the largest of our grants are often the ones that get headlines, sometimes the smaller ones really resonate.
In a vote on June 18, the Board of Directors of the Boston Foundation welcomed four new members, Rosalin Acosta, Managing Director and Senior Vice President of Enterprise Investment Advisors; Zamawa Arenas, Principal at Argus; J. Keith Motley, Chancellor of UMass Boston; and Scott Squillace, Esq., Principal Squillace and Associates.

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.
