AB-BC Community Fund

The Fund was established by the Honorable Thomas M. Menino and Rev. J. Donald Monan, former President of and current Chancellor of Boston College. The President of the College, Reverend William P. Leahy and Mayor Martin J. Walsh continue to support this cooperative effort between Boston College and representatives of Allston and Brighton.

The purpose of the awards is to supplement existing budgets of established organizations and agencies in order to promote a program or service for which financial support is not otherwise available. Consultants will not be funded. The Fund Committee also considers and makes awards to independent groups who present a worthy proposal or sponsor a worthwhile event.

Each Spring and Fall, eligible applicants may apply for a $3,000 grant. Grant money must be used for a specific purpose or event. Grant money cannot be used for general operating expenses.

Interested groups may apply for funding either during the fall cycle or the spring cycle. For more information including deadlines and grant application forms, please visit the Boston College Neighborhood Center website.

Please Note:  Only one grant per group or agency will be awarded per year.
