Other Financial Support

In addition to Competitive Grants, we make grants and strategic investments through several other grant making programs that have varying purposes and application processes.

Organizations already receiving one form of Foundation support are technically eligible to apply for another, but current funding will be an important factor in our consideration of additional support. We generally aim to find the best fit between an organization and one grant type.

Other types of financial support include:

The Vision Fund (This funding opportunity is not currently accepting applications. Please continue to visit the Boston Foundation’s website for information about future funding opportunities.)

The Catalyst Fund for Nonprofits (Please note: the Catalyst Fund is no longer accepting applications. Thank you for your interest.)

Out of the Blue Grants

The Foundation also provides grants for Special Initiatives.
