No more hurting people.

The Martin Richard Foundation provides opportunities for individuals and communities to live out the values of peace, justice and kindness.

Founded in 2014, the Martin RichardFoundation  is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin, who was killed in the bombing at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013.  In the days after his death, a photo of Martin holding a handmade poster that read “No more hurting people. Peace” was shared over the Internet.   Martin’s view of peace went well beyond simply wanting to prevent violence. To Martin, peace meant togetherness, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion, and kindness.  

The Martin Richard Foundation stands up for kindness, inclusion, justice, and peace through community service. By encouraging people to choose kindness, work for inclusion, and embrace diversity in local communities, we aim to influence a generation to live out these values through positive civic engagement. 

We strive to: 

  • Challenge youth and adults to take action and to foster greater togetherness, in their communities through service and activities that reflect our values. 
  • Motivate and enable people to be thinkers, up-standers and peacemakers. 
  • Choose kindness 
  • Build bridges 
  • Do more.
