The Boston Foundation (TBF) seeks to improve the life trajectories for children and families living in Fairmount Corridor neighborhoods. The emerging Fairmount Strategy can be strengthened and achieve greater impact with rigorous information about how foundation activities and investments contribute to community change. To further this internal strategic learning, the Center for Social Policy (CSP) is conducting retrospective and prospective case studies of the Fairmount Strategy (2009-2015) focusing on one of the foundation’s central tenets: alignment.


A partnership between the Center for Social Policy at UMass Boston and the Boston Foundation.
