Boston Foundation Funding

SPACE is pleased to announce that we have received a $50,000 Safety Net Grant from The Boston Foundation in order to fund our social support programming, with a focus on families of children with disabilities. This grant will allow us to expand our offerings by providing culturally competent health literacy education for the Somali community in the Greater Boston area.

Funds for this grant come from the Boston Foundation’s Permanent Fund for Boston, an endowed pool of funds built over more than a century by generous contributors who want to help the Greater Boston community thrive. Each year, the Boston Foundation distributes more than $15 million in discretionary grants and other resources from the Fund, which are largely awarded through a competitive process open to nonprofits serving the Foundation’s catchment area, stewarded by the Foundation’s Program Department staff and approved by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

We are immensely grateful to The Boston Foundation for their generous support and hope to continue working with them in the future!
