Donations, Gifts and Legacies

BCBC's goal is to help blind, low-vision or visually impaired children and adults living in Massachusetts. If you would like to support BCBC's grant giving goals through gifts or legacies, please contact us.

Our Investment Partners

BCBC does not solicit for donations, but we do accept donations and bequests from organizations, trusts, estates and individuals who want to support our mission by helping us: 

  • support our sustainable foundation

  • expand our applicant pool

  • increase the amount per grant

  • pool resources with other donors to help us grow

Our Portfolio

As stewards of the BCBC endowment, we are proud of our successful portfolio management track record that has allowed us to award over $2,800,000 in grants to deserving recipients. Moreover, our disciplined adherence to a risk-managed investment approach has not only protected our capital from depletion, but it has allowed the endowment to meaningfully appreciate in value, thereby helping ensure an impactful legacy for years to come.

Our donors may range from attorneys working with estates, wills and trusts, corporations interested in contributing to a local, long established organization that provides funding for the local special needs community, and individuals who we have crossed paths with at some point in their lives, who believe in our mission.  

If you are considering making a financial contribution to the Boston Center for Blind Children, please understand that we remain unwavering in our continued commitment to our fiduciary responsibilities for managing and growing the endowment.  As such, we hope that you will share in our enthusiasm and confidence that any donation you make today will provide meaningful support to the visually impaired community for years to come.
