Learn more about what is made possible with contributions to the BBF.
Donations to the general fund help make our work in the Greater Boston community possible. With the contributions we receive, we are able to help bridge the gap in legal services funding for organizations that meet critical needs, invest in community service projects that improve the lives of those in our community and provide educational and employment opportunities for Boston youth, and much more.
100% of each donation to the Public Service Fund goes to fund BBA projects, and will help us to continue to expand these programs and our impact on the City of Boston.
