The Community Award Program supports community-based efforts and projects that improve the health and well-being of Boston children, families, and neighborhoods. Community-based organizations, schools, community health centers, and advocacy organizations are considered for the award and can receive up to $10,000.
Organizations are not asked to apply. It takes considerable time and resources for an organization to develop and submit proposals. The hospital wants to use this award to recognize organizations for their commitment to community health and provide them with the surprise of some unexpected funds.
Boston Children’s gathers input and suggestions from community partners and staff in the Office of Community Health. A full list is developed and reviewed to determine the recipients.
Boston Children’s is pleased to recognize the below organizations with a Community Award.
