Collaborate Boston is an incentive-driven competition that supports collaborative efforts to create thriving people and vibrant places in our community.  Each year, the Boston Foundation makes $100,000 in grants to collaborations focused on achieving specific outcomes for the people and/or the places that make up our community.  The outcomes are announced at the start of each competition.  In 2017 the Foundation will make five, $20,000 grants to intergenerational collaborations that are focused on tackling long-standing problems in Boston.
