$18 million. 1600 donors. Powerful results. Thank you.
On March 13, 2020, the Boston Foundation announced the establishment of the COVID-19 Response Fund to rapidly deploy flexible resources to organizations in Greater Boston that were providing critical basic needs to communities disproportionately affected by the coronavirus outbreak. The announcement inspired institutions, companies, individual donors, and other funders to contribute to the Fund, and just 18 days later, the COVID-19 Response Fund made its first grants.
Over the next two-plus years, the Foundation and its community of donors raised and distributed more than $18 million. As your community foundation, our thanks go to all who have been part of this massive endeavor and for giving your support when communities needed it most.
