Reason #10: Our Artist in Residence, Topper Carew, tells truths we might not otherwise hear.

Filmmaker Topper Carew is Artist in Residence at the Trinity Boston Foundation. Since 2009, Topper has created short films for our annual Bostonians for Youth event.

Have you watched “A Dream Deferred?” or “and the Children Will Lead?”

Topper’s films call us to bold action. Your gifts make it possible.

Reason #4: Bostonians for Youth Brings People and Programs Together to Change the Odds for Youth

Our annual fundraising dinner, Bostonians for Youth, is not your typical fundraiser. Each year, we invite two other organizations to partner with us around a common theme. Past partners include Boston Ten Point Coalition, Urban Improv, Roxbury Presbyterian Social Impact Center and FUEL. In 2011, our partners are Justice Resource Institute and the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute.  We’ve raised nearly $500,000 to date and divided the proceeds among the partners. Why do we do this? Because we think that greater collaboration among non-profits can lead to more effective programs and systemic change.

Mark your calendar for Bostonians for Youth 2011 on April 5th — see you there!
