The Boston Foundation (TBF)
Grants of $50,000 to Massachusetts new and established nonprofits in eligible locations for innovative programs that address critical priorities and challenges in local communities.

The Foundation distributes a portion of its resources via the Open Door Grants program for organizations not currently aligned with the areas of impact: arts and culture, education, health and wellness, neighborhoods and housing, and jobs and economic development.
