Growing the Grassroots

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

The Lenny Zakim Fund makes small and meaningful grants to support some of the most amazing and effective grassroots programs in the state. Our goal is to support these agencies in every way that we can, so we do a whole lot more. The Lenny Zakim Fund continually nurtures these organizations toward growth and sustainability by providing the resources, training and other supports that are often unavailable to small organizations, including:

  • Grantmaking:  LZF makes grants for program, capacity building and general operating purposes.  Grants in addition to financial assistance, LZF offer technical assistance in the form of the below.
  • Training and Networking:  Semi-annual Institutes and on-going seminars provide hands-on learning in management, fundraising, peer learning and networking opportunities
  • Counseling and Advice:  Formal and informal counseling and advice, access to experts in various business, consulting and professional fields, resources and materials
  • Publicity:  Publicity and exposure through the newsletter, events, and radio show
