Each year, the Boston Foundation devotes a portion of its discretionary grant making resources to sponsorship grants that help support the annual fundraising events of nonprofits in the Greater Boston community. These grants are specifically designed to provide general operating support to nonprofits, while also giving the Foundation the opportunity to take part in these important ongoing community events. Any nonprofit is eligible to apply for these sponsorships, but they are generally limited to an organization’s annual fundraising events and are not meant to provide support for ongoing programs.

In keeping with the Foundation's values and aligned with our Arts and Culture Strategy, organizations that apply for sponsorship consideration must commit to paying any artists/performers who will be featured during their event.

For more information or to submit a sponsorship request, email Michelle Hinkle, Director of Forums and Convenings, or call (617) 338-4268.
