Funding Opportunities

Collaboration for Community Health

Boston Children’s has an opportunity to build on our history of partnering with the community to make a significant impact on the health of children and families over the next 10 years. Boston Children's will distribute funds as part of an agreement with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health's Determination of Need/Community Health Initiative program.

These funds—Boston Children’s Collaboration for Community Health—will be distributed to community organizations in addition to our ongoing commitments and support for programs and partners. For more information click here.

Community Partnership Fund

Through the Community Partnership Fund, Boston Children's Hospital supports community-based programs that improve the health and well-being of children and families (primarily in the Fenway, Mission Hill, Jamaica Plain and Roxbury neighborhoods), as well as community-based organizations that are working to make those neighborhoods and Boston a better place to live, work and play.

Guidelines are distributed on an annual basis (usually in August).

If you have any questions about the guidelines, feel free to contact Jessica Clement at 617-919-3061.

The guidelines are sent out by email. If you don’t currently receive emails from Boston Children’s about the community mission and would like to, sign up below:
