We do this by providing healthy, affordable homes; offering programs designed to enrich, educate and inspire; and engaging in innovative philanthropy.
Charlesview, Inc. recently awarded its eighth year of grant awards to local non-profits. The awards were presented earlier this month at an outdoor breakfast to Commonwheels Bicycle Collective, Family Nurturing Centers of Massachusetts, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, Franciscan Children’s Hospital, Gardner Pilot Academy Adult Education Program, The Kithara Project, FriendshipWorks, The Puppet Showplace, The Brookline Center for Community Mental Health, Artisan’s Asylum, The Allston Brighton Community Development Corporation, and Granada House.
We are honored to support the tremendous work of these organizations.
Charlesview, Inc. gave awards to local nonprofits that benefit low- and moderate-income individuals and families in Allston-Brighton by improving opportunities for education, health care, housing, and workforce development. The grants were made under Charlesview’s Rabbi Abraham Halbfinger and Charlesview Charitable Fund.
“There are many organizations in this vibrant community that are doing great things and for that we are grateful. These organizations recognized the increased challenges and needs experienced by our Allston/Brighton neighbors as a result of the Pandemic. Today we recognize organizations that we believe are outstanding in their work to make a difference in peoples’ lives and have an impact on the entire community,” said Etta Anderson, Board Member and Charitable Fund Committee Chairperson.
Today’s awards represent the eighth round of grants made under Charlesview, Inc’s philanthropy program, established in 2014. To date, Charlesview has awarded a total of over $1M to nonprofits dedicated to improving the Allston-Brighton community.
The Rabbi Abraham Halbfinger and Charlesview Charitable Fund was named in memory of the late Rabbi Abraham Halbfinger, a founding board member and spiritual leader in the Allston area for 40 years. The Fund was conceived to leverage organizations’ efforts to make the Allston-Brighton community a thriving neighborhood where opportunity abounds for all residents.
