We believe that innovation is key to developing programs that improve social outcomes. We invest in organizations that are working to develop effective solutions to the challenges facing our communities.
We recognize that it takes creativity to address the challenges in our communities. By partnering with organizations utilizing innovative approaches, the Vertex Foundation aims to develop solutions that are more effective, efficient, sustainable or equitable than the status quo.
We sponsor City Year teams at schools in Boston and the UK to provide social, emotional and academic support; add capacity to classrooms; and create a positive school culture and climate.
St. Francis House
We partner with St. Francis House to provide a holistic menu of services to assist individuals as they transition from homelessness to permanent and stable homes.
We’re supporters of GrubStreet’s Narrative Arts Center, which provides high-quality programs and opportunities to underserved writers and readers in Boston and beyond.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the learning losses that happened as a result, the work being done by City Year to support students and teachers has become more important than ever.
