Summer Fund Fact

We direct resources to high-quality summer camps and programs that serve underserved, at-risk children and youth ages 5-18, from low to moderate income households in Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, and Somerville.

Our Impact

The Summer Fund’s program broke financial barriers to enable 816 new individuals to visit the Museum exhibit halls. Through the cultural program, we have the opportunity to enhance existing relationships and begin new ones with community-based organizations and with colleagues from other cultural organizations.

Random Quote

To say that the HCF program has been central in assisting families in need who would otherwise not have had opportunities in the summer is an understatement. Without this program, many children would simply sit in their rooms at the shelters.
