We are thrilled to announce that Found in Translation has received a $25,000 general operating grant from The Boston Foundation through the Foundation’s Open Door Grants program. This funding will support our programming in 2020 as we adapt to meet the needs of our alumnae and support a new class of interpreters through online training.
“Removing barriers to health care access is as critical as ever in the time of COVID-19,” said Paul S. Grogan, President and CEO of the Boston Foundation. “By making quality healthcare more accessible for non-English speakers and creating job opportunities in an area of need, Found in Translation is playing a potentially lifesaving role. We are pleased to support them with an Open Door Grant.”
Open Door Grants are competitive, one-year grants designed for organizations whose proposal is focused on Greater Boston and whose values align with those of the Boston Foundation. Grants are awarded biannually, and are selected by staff through an inclusive evaluation process. Funds for this grant come from the Boston Foundation’s Permanent Fund for Boston, Greater Boston’s only endowed fund focusing on the pressing needs of Greater Boston. The Permanent Fund has been made possible by more than a century of gifts from those who seek to support innovative solutions to the region’s most pressing problems since 1915.
We are honored to receive this award alongside so many other Boston organizations driving change and meeting critical needs in our communities. Thank you Boston Foundation!
