The Boston Foundation is actively seeking donors to the COVID-19 Response Fund. Your donations, large and small, will be targeted directly to organizations working most closely with communities feeling the greatest impact from the coronavirus outbreak—such as seniors, communities of color, immigrants (including undocumented individuals), people with disabilities, domestic violence survivors, and incarcerated and returning citizens.
In its current phase, the fund is providing general operating support grants to these organizations. The Fund's grantee portfolio will be regularly reviewed to ensure grants are supporting racial equity and are reaching the communities of greatest need in the Boston Foundation's catchment area.
For interested philanthropic and business partners, please contact our Assistant Director of Philanthropy, Thomas Bentley, at /HYy63FE1Gc7EYFk3m5bVTFi5lv31h/lhx1C62EsIYLiHzlm7i+H8bpjieZlinn/jU+ndN3I2tNfHKHlOPSq74PBvgSTsA6pSNfoCH4Hv+D92DzI4Mm0L7unmdKeH3JsZqgVIFXT9gUKyrSNSzHHlJKMvtpK6id5y1zXfQ77+HK6osX9GKLEHF+0Lx5qNzLmIYQ7yT5j1YKkA9nCFj2QKA== or 617-338-1778.
