Boston Foundation Awards $1M to 49 Greater Boston Nonprofits
Boston Foundation
May 24, 2020 — The Boston Foundation last week announced it awarded $1 million in grants to 49 Greater Boston nonprofits, made in connection with its quarterly grants program, but which were accelerated to meet immediate critical needs and relieve increasing financial pressures stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to expediting so-called Open Door grants, The Boston Foundation (TBF) said it allowed the grantees to use the funds for general operating support, giving them "the greatest possible flexibility in how to use the resources."

“By making all of these grants general operating support, we are giving the grantees the faith and latitude they have earned to make spending decisions that serve their operations and their communities best,” said Paul Grogan, TBF president and CEO.
