Why recommend a grant from your DAF to Friends-Boston
Your support helps make generational change happen. Here are a few examples of how Friends-Boston is changing the lives of Boston's most vulnerable children and youth:
98% of Achievers graduate to the next grade, while 100%avoidincarceration, and 98% avoid early parenting
91% of Achievers report consistent school attendance, compared to 72% for all Boston Public School (BPS) students—despite our Achievers facing significantly more barriers and frequently attending schools that rank amongst the lowest in the city
80% plus of our alumni are persisting in pursuing a college degree and/or employed, despite the pandemic, which we know is a result of our ability to build years of trust and provide them with a network of support in every aspect of their lives
