This week, we are honored to announce that Catholic Charities of Boston has been selected to receive three very generous grants from area organizations. This financial support enables us to continue serving our community members in need.
The Boston Resiliency Fund announced that Catholic Charities of Boston will receive a $55,000 grant to support on-going COVID-19 relief efforts.
The Boston Resiliency Fund is the City of Boston’s effort to help local philanthropic efforts providing essential services to Boston residents whose health and well-being are most immediately impacted by the pandemic.
With an ever-increasing demand on our basic needs services, including food, shelter and rental assistance, this grant will enable CCAB to continue serving the most vulnerable populations in our communities. Our food pantries have seen a five-fold ncrease in demand since the pandemic began. We are immensely grateful for the support of the Boston Resiliency Fund during this unprecedented time.
The Bank of America Charitable Foundation recently awarded Catholic Charities a $50,000 grant. The grant will be split and used to support our on-going COVID-19 relief efforts in the community, as well as for support to our five shelters in Eastern MA. Catholic Charities offers a variety of temporary shelters as well as permanent supportive residences to help people get back on their feet.
We are so appreciative of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation for their continued annual support of Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities of Boston’s Teen Center at St. Peter’s is one of 130 local nonprofits to receive grants through Cummings Foundation’s $20 Million Grant Program. The award, totaling $100,000, will be spread out over five years. The Teen Center was chosen from a total of 738 applicants during a competitive review process.
The Catholic Charities Teen Center provides academic support and recreational activities to approximately 200 teens in the Bowdoin-Geneva neighborhood of Dorchester. The Cummings Foundation grant enables us to continue these important programs for the youth of this neighborhood.
The generous financial support from these organizations makes our work possible and we could not be more grateful. Thank you, Boston Resiliency Fund, Bank of America Charitable Foundation and Cummings Foundation!
