Summer Fund Fact

Fifty-eight organizations operating at 93 sites in Greater Boston received general operating grants from the Summer Fund in 2017.

Our Impact

The Summer Fund provides 60% of the total number of groups we serve for our summer programs, which yields 35% of our total participants and 40% of our participant fees. The impact of the Summer Fund on YES’s Outdoor Adventure Program is substantial. It provides the opportunity for more than 250 participants to receive introductory, one-day outdoor experiential education excursions, which we hope will leave them yearning to come back for more.

Cultural Day has had a significant impact on MetroLacrosse’s ability to implement quality summer programming. This summer, our Coaches-In-Training program implemented lacrosse clinics for 32 community organizations, 23 of which were secured through the Summer Fund. Cultural Day gives us the opportunity to efficiently and cost-effectively secure partnerships with past partners as well as new organizations we haven’t worked with before.
