The BSA Foundation is working in neighborhoods from Roslindale to Mattapan, East Boston to Revere, Chinatown to South Boston bringing design tools to underserved families and communities. Whether transforming a blighted vacant lot into a community garden; facilitating a community process to design a new elementary school playground; welcoming more than 900 children and parents to a KidsBuild! weekend; or helping residents prepare their homes for storm surge, the BSA Foundation uses the power of design to engage children, neighborhoods and the greater public in creating a vibrant, resilient and equitable city.

Since 2014, the Foundation has served more than 100,000 people through community design and education programs.

We are proud of what we have accomplished, and know that much remains to be done. In the next five years we will be scaling our community design programs, increasing our youth design education initiatives, and bringing the public into a wide range of conversations around equity, sustainability, and design excellence in the built environment. But, we need your help to make it happen.

Will you help us deliver on our vision of using design to build a better Boston by engaging communities, inspiring vision, and provoking positive change?
