2020 Boston Coronavirus Response and Recovery Fund


We recognize that each community will have their own set of challenges in light of the Coronavirus. Bright Funds Foundation has established the 2020 Boston Coronavirus Response and Recovery Fund to address the unique needs of the Boston community. Through a single donation to the Fund, you can support multiple organizations' initiatives to provide short-term and long-term response and recovery. Given the ever-changing nature of this pandemic and widespread impact, the composition of the nonprofits in this Fund will evolve.

We fulfill this mission in three principal ways: -Making grants to nonprofit organizations and designing special funding initiatives to address the community's critical challenges; -Working in partnership with donors and other funders to achieve high-impact philanthropy; and -Serving as a civic hub and center of information, where ideas are shared, levers for change identified, and common agendas for the future are developed.

The Marion Institute, Inc. Fiscal Sponsor of The Leadership Brainery

The Leadership Brainery is committed to supporting the well-being of diverse and first-generation college-enrolled student leaders. Several schools in Greater Boston have chosen to suspend on-campus classes and activities, and have given students a short window to make alternative living arrangements. They understand that this unforeseen circumstance presents a hardship for many diverse and first-generation students. Therefore, they are providing College Student Emergency Relief Mini Grants to support diverse and first-generation college students in the Greater Boston area experiencing homelessness and financial hardships during this time. College-enrolled undergraduate students displaced by COVID-19 who meet their criteria and express most need will receive a one-time $100 mini grant.

Greg Hill Foundation

The Greg Hill Foundation has teamed up with Samuel Adams to support those from the Massachusetts restaurant industry who have been impacted by the Covid-19 closures. Together, and with the insights of notable Boston-area chefs, they will be raising awareness and funds to provide grants to full-time restaurant workers in Massachusetts who are dependent on wages plus tips to cover basic living expenses and provide for their families. Their goal is to provide $1,000 grants to as many qualifying grantees as possible.
