The Giving Common

The Giving Common is a free online resource that connects donors with nonprofit organizations working to enhance communities across Massachusetts. Its purpose is to let nonprofits tell their stories in a transparent and accurate way by setting up a full profile of the organization’s activities.  Each nonprofit profile includes a highlighted “Donate” tab, which allows contributors to make a donation using a credit card. Donations are processed by the Boston Foundation and then sent to the selected nonprofit. For nonprofit organizations seeking grant funding, setting up a profile may decrease the cost and time spent on grant applications to the Boston Foundation and other funders who will utilize the Giving Common through a streamlined grant making process.
