_______________________________________________________________________

The Grassroots Strategy is one of the 7 impact areas operated by the Boston Foundation. We seek to recognize, include, and support the leaders and communities that have historically been excluded. 


There are three core components to our work: 

Activating Grassroots Leaders

We recognize the leadership and vision of community members and seek to support their growth and work. We do this by sponsoring professional development opportunities for grassroots leaders, connecting leaders to resources and other support systems, and hosting the Boston Neighborhood Fellows. 


Seeding Grassroots Ideas

Grassroots grant making at the Boston Foundation is set up to respond quickly to community needs, with the Grassroots Fund proactively providing grants that range from $200 to $10,000 to grassroots organizations and efforts led by leaders with lived experiences in the issues we work to address through all of our grant making. 


Deepening Grassroots Connections

We work to deepen grassroots connections by partnering with leaders to co-create safe and welcoming spaces and opportunities for community members, grassroots nonprofit leaders and Foundation staff to meet together, exchange stories and discuss lessons learned from community action to ensure that voices of communities historically excluded are present in all of our work


For any questions please email Cairo Mendes, cairo.mendes@tbf.org.
