As the Yawkey Foundations look ahead to the coming years, our trustees have begun evaluating the Foundation's grant making, with the goal of setting a new course that is consistent with Tom and Jean Yawkey's values. The trustees are considering strategic changes to expand the reach of the Foundations into communities, particularly to groups that support children and families in Boston and in the Gateway Cities.
As we conduct this work, and for the immediate future, the Foundations will only accept grant applications from organizations that received funding in 2018. While this past funding will provide eligibility to submit applications, it is no guarantee of future funding.
Our process will be ongoing, and we will provide updates as appropriate. We ask for your patience and understanding as we continue to carry out the important mission established by the generosity of Tom and Jean Yawkey.
