Yawkey Foundations Release 2012 Grants Report

Report Celebrates a Decade of Giving and Impact

DEDHAM, Mass., July 12, 2013 – The Trustees of the Yawkey Foundations recently released the Foundations’ 2012 Grants Report, marking a special milestone in the history of the Foundations. It has been 10 years since the 2002 sale of the Boston Red Sox, which added nearly $400 million in proceeds to the Foundations.

Over the last 10 years, the Trustees of the Yawkey Foundations have awarded nearly 2,500 grants totaling $316 million to organizations providing high-quality services and programs in education, health care, human services, youth and amateur athletics, arts and culture, and conservation and wildlife. The Report honors Tom and Jean Yawkey and their great philanthropic legacy to the people of New England and Georgetown County, South Carolina.

“The Trustees of the Yawkey Foundations are pleased to present this look at the Foundations and their contributions over the last 10 years,” said James Healey, President and Trustee of the Yawkey Foundations. “We have been inspired by the many people and organizations we have had the privilege to work with and are thankful to them for their profound service to those in need.”
