Tom and Jean Yawkey appreciated the rich cultural heritage that is a vital part of life in Boston and New England. Throughout their lives, the Yawkeys supported cultural institutions and organizations in the community that enriched the lives of children and families by inspiring curiosity, creativity, and a life-long sense of wonder and appreciation for the world around them. The Yawkey Foundations are commited to museums and children's art programs that provide meaningful opportunities for disadvantaged and underserved children so that they can experience and enjoy the rich and diverse tradition of arts and culture in Boston and New England.
