What We Do
Forest Foundation yearly supports up to 65 paid summer internships at exceptional non-profit organizations in Greater Boston. Accepted interns are paired with non-profits whose missions align with the intern’s passion, skill sets, and academic path.
Forest Foundation, through its FF Ventures initiative, invites grant proposals from current undergraduate college students, recent college graduates, and others who have created an emerging or new non-profit in the New England/New York states.
Forest Foundation makes grants to new and emerging non-profits in Greater Boston and is by
invitation only. We support small social service agencies meeting critical need in under-
resourced communities, with a focus on youth and families.
The Trustees and staff of Forest Foundation stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Today, as in the long history of the United States, the lives of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) have been harmfully impacted by structural racism, lack of education and opportunity, health disparities, and direct violence. We pledge to continue and more fully support those that are targets of this inequity and violence.
In our 27 years of grant making, we have directly supported non-profits who work to uplift the neediest and most diverse communities. Since 2007, through our Intern Program and Ventures grants, we have sponsored a diverse generation of future leaders who will have a lasting presence in the non profit, public health, education, and business sectors.
