Massachusetts United for Puerto Rico/Massachusetts Unido por Puerto Rico

The Massachusetts United for Puerto Rico Fund is a field-of-interest fund dedicated to grassroots relief and recovery efforts in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, and to support grassroots organizations helping Puerto Ricans displaced to Boston and the Commonwealth as a result of the destruction. Established as a partnership between the Boston Foundation and the Latino Legacy Fund (which is housed at TBF), the fund is advised by an Advisory Board of local Latino leaders, public officials and experts from the Massachusetts Puerto Rican diaspora community.

Massachusetts United for Puerto Rico

In partnership with The Latino Legacy Fund

The money raised will be invested in three areas: disaster relief, sustainable rebuilding and capacity building for NGO’s in Massachusetts, as a substantial migration of Puerto Ricans to Boston and throughout the Commonwealth is expected in the months ahead. Up to one third of the funds raised will be distributed for relief efforts, and two thirds will support recovery and reconstruction in Puerto Rico and relocation efforts in Massachusetts.

La Fundación Comunitaria de Boston aportará sus servicios de manera gratuita. Los fondos recaudados se invertirán en tres áreas: manejo de desastres, reconstrucción sustentable y apoyo a organizaciones no gubernamentales en Massachusetts, en previsión a la llegada de refugiados puertorriqueños al estado. Un tercio del fondo irá a esfuerzos de alivio; otro tercio se destinará durante dos años para proyectos de reconstrucción y recuperación económica que sean sustentables a largo plazo; el último tercio se dedicará a brindar apoyo a los esfuerzos de reubicación de boricuas en el estado de Massachusetts.
