“Here’s what I see all across this great city - people working together to make Boston a better place to live and to raise children, to grow and pursue dreams.”
-Mayor Thomas M. Menino, 2005 State of the City Address
Look up community in the dictionary, and you’ll find two general definitions – one based on place, the other based on something less tangible, a shared interest.
As a community foundation, we were founded with the first definition in mind – as a foundation to serve the community of Boston. But it’s the shared mission and goals that often drive our work. No place is that more critical than along the Fairmount Corridor, where the expansion of rail service creates an opportunity to create opportunity, in terms of jobs, housing and community development, for thousands of Boston residents.
The Boston Foundation Board approved $1,309,000 in single and multi-year discretionary grants to be paid out beginning in April 2014.
The public school landscape in Boston looks sharply different than it was even five years ago, according to a Boston Indicators Project special report released today in an Understanding Boston forum at the Boston Foundation. Taking Stock: Five Years of Structural Change in Boston’s Public Schools, takes a broad look at the overall makeup of public schools in Boston to provide a snapshot of how school structures and student performance have been affected by reforms.
