BENEFITING: Boston Foundation, Inc.
The Boston Foundation has established The US-Nepal Fund at the Boston Foundation, seeded by members of our donor community Karen and Jim Ansara and drawing on lessons learned through The Haiti Fund and the Japanese Disaster Relief Fund, both housed at the Boston Foundation. The Ansaras, long-time grantmakers to Nepal, will match the first $100,000 in gifts from other funders.
We invite you to join us in building The US-Nepal Fund that will draw upon the wisdom of Nepalese Americans and international development experts and be directed by our Center for Global Philanthropy at The Philanthropic Initiative. All funds raised will support community-led, long-term reconstruction and renewal with attention to human rights.
All donations will support reconstruction and renewal efforts, as administrative fees will be covered through the seed grant. The Fund’s resources will go directly to Nepal-based, grassroots organizations. Nepalese involvement will ensure cultural competence, provide needed networks, and lend crucial expertise to ensure every dollar sent goes to organizations that can have the greatest impact locally.
