We are in the business of helping people like you change the world. The Boston Foundation has an entire department that is dedicated to working closely with our donors to make their philanthropy as effective and fulfilling as possible. Our experienced and caring Donor Services team will be your partners at the Boston Foundation. We will design a program of philanthropy that’s just right for you – bringing the same degree of commitment and passion to your philanthropy as you do.
It all begins with you.
We will marry your aspirations and passion for giving with our deep understanding of the important issues facing our communities to achieve results that matter. Whether you are just beginning your philanthropic journey or possess a high level of clarity and sophistication, we strategically tailor solutions to serve you and create positive change for the causes you care about.

Meeting you where you are.
Are you an emerging philanthropist who wants to move beyond “checkbook” giving? Or an experienced philanthropist with a desire to be more strategic so that you can have a powerful, measurable impact? Are you concerned about succession and your charitable legacy? Wherever you are in the lifecycle and focus of your giving, we will make your contributions work harder and have a greater impact.
Getting you where you want to be.
In a time when philanthropy is more important than ever, we can help you design a giving program that’s easy and right for you – so that your passions and interests can direct your giving. Our knowledgeable Donor Services staff serves as a liaison with charities close to home and far away – lending expertise on a wide range of issues and helping you measure the impact of your giving. We will invite you to forums on important issues, introduce you to other donors, offer opportunities to “co-invest” in effective and timely programs that have been evaluated by our staff, and include your entire family.
We also offer customized philanthropic consulting through The Philanthropic Initiative (TPI), a distinct unit of the Boston Foundation that pioneered the field of strategic philanthropic advising over 20 years ago and remains a national leader today. Individuals, families, foundations, and companies looking to increase the impact of their giving will benefit from TPI’s personalized approach. Donors wishing to give internationally, either within the U.S. or abroad, will find TPI’s Center for Global Philanthropy particularly helpful.
