As the Haiti Fund at the Boston Foundation moves toward the end of its initial five-year commitment to support Haitian-led reconstruction efforts and community building in Boston and Haiti after the devastating January 2010 earthquake, fund founder Karen Ansara shares some lessons and reflections from her journey, providing valuable insight into the challenges and opportunity for international disaster relief and anti-poverty philanthropy.

It's a worthy look into an important and challenging role for #philanthropy.

Awareness is high to the plight of the poor around the world and the time is now to empower the poor and bring about universal prosperity. The Ansara Family Fund is focused on harnessing the unprecedented international will to end poverty and preserve the earth.

The Boston Foundation is pleased to see that Massachusetts has been ranked number 1 in the nation for children's wellbeing in the 2014 Kids Count report. In fact, 3 New England states were in the Top 4 and 4 were in the Top 7.

That said, there is plenty we can and should learn by looking more deeply into the numbers, examining the data for our cities and counties and more. Take a closer look at the numbers through a number of topical and grographical lenses at kidscount.org. The link to the Mass. data sets is below. - Indicator Selection | KIDS COUNT Data Center - http://bit.ly/1A1uJi2

Greater Boston’s community foundation
Introduction

Founded in 1915, the Boston Foundation, Greater Boston’s community foundation, is one of the oldest and largest community foundations in the nation. The Foundation and its donors make more than $80 million in grants every year.

Our donors meet their own philanthropic goals, while adding to the Foundation’s overall strength. The Foundation also plays a major civic leadership role for our region through publishing fresh research, convening people to discuss our region’s challenges and creating powerful agendas for change.
