Trauma & Resilience Fund Announces Surprise Grants


Grants Announced

In July 2019, GMA Funder Community’s Trauma and Resilience Fund recognized four Boston-area nonprofits for their exemplary work and leadership in addressing the pervasive and poorly-understood problem of childhood trauma. These organizations have developed innovative methods of building resilience in youth to reverse the effects of adverse experiences and are building trauma-sensitive communities that support all children.

The unexpected and unrestricted grants have been delivered to: Fathers’ Uplift ($40,000), College Bound Dorchester ($40,000), Silver Lining Mentoring ($20,000), and Massachusetts Advocates for Children’s Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative ($20,000).

Modeled on research showing the importance of supportive, stable adult relationships, these programs offer an example and hope to any organization that works to support healthy children and communities.
