Boston Foundation

"Founded in 1915, the Boston Foundation was one of the first community foundations and today is one of the largest, with assets of almost $830 million. The Foundation is made up of over 750 separate funds, which have been established by hundreds of donors either for the general benefit of the community or for special purposes.

"The Boston Foundation is a major funder, this year distributing $50 million in grants. The focus of grantmaking from the Discretionary Funds, the most flexible funds held by the Foundation, gives priority to community-building strategies that help children and their families overcome poverty."
