Who We Are

We are people for whom improving our community is part of our life’s journey.

We are a diverse community of leaders investing our time and money in nonprofits working to ensure every child and young adult succeeds in school and beyond. Through our rigorous investment approach and collective giving, we sharpen our philanthropy and have an impact much greater than we would on our own.

We give of ourselves: our financial resources, professional expertise, and time.

Our Partners make a minimum annual gift of $5,500, and many give much more. Our Partners early in their careers make an annual gift of $2,750.

We pool these funds and invest them in carefully selected nonprofits. But the core of our philanthropic model is engagement. We give of ourselves — our time, our expertise, and our contacts — to help our Grantees achieve growth goals that they often thought were impossible. Through this direct involvement, we too, are strengthened as philanthropists and more personally connected to one another and to the larger Boston community.

We are committed to engaged philanthropy.

We believe that nothing truly great is accomplished alone. Every person in our network has something to teach and something to learn. We are never satisfied, never settled. We know we have more to give, and that more needs to be done.

Since 2002, we have invested well over $1 million in Boston and surrounding communities. Including our funding, the value of our Partners’ time, and additional benefits to our Grantees, our impact to the community has been more than ten times our financial investment.

That’s impact. That’s engaged philanthropy.
