Equity at the Center
If we are to advance equity and close the gaps caused by this region's greatest disparities, we must tackle the individual, systems-level and root-level causes of inequity. To do this, our work with nonprofits must expand beyond grantmaking to other dimensions of partnership that allow us to most effectively tackle these complex and challenging issues.
The Boston Foundation recognizes that many people from different backgrounds suffer from inequities, including Black, Latino, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Indigenous, LGBTQA+, immigrant, migrant worker, low-income and underserved communities. Through Our New Pathway, TBF seeks to repair the harm caused by systemic disparities while building and nourishing strategies that advance equity for all Bostonians.
To forge this path we are focused on four interconnected areas where we believe the Foundation is best situated to support and partner with community-based organizations and leaders to advance their work.
