Reason #14: We mean it when we say “together”

The earthquake that struck Haiti last January affected families and loved ones who are part of our Trinity Boston Foundation community.

We responded by talking to our citywide partners. To FUEL and Roxbury Presbyterian’s Social Impact Center, our 2010 Bostonians for Youth partners.  We talked to the Black Ministerial Alliance and the Jewish Community Relations Council. Together we created a matching fund to match the offering at a city-wide worship service.  Donors to Trinity Boston Foundation pooled gifts of $25,000 that became part of an inter-faith offering totaling over $110,000. The Foundation’s gifts went to Partners in Health.

Changing the odds for Boston youth will take all of us, working together. And at the Trinity Boston Foundation, we look for ways to increase coordination and effectiveness within the non-profit sector. One crisis — or one opportunity — at a time.

Thanks for your partnership.
