Who We Are...
Boston For All is comprised entirely of friends and neighbors concerned about the direction that the current politics of our time has taken our country. We came together after digesting the shocking results of the 2016 presidential election seeking to find some way to answer the question, "What can I do to help my nation be what I believe it should be?"
With our fundamental question in mind, we decided that we would work for inclusion of all people in our community and our nation through raising money for worthy causes. It is our mission to make giving fun and simple - just show up, enjoy some great times with others in your community, and open yourself up to possibility and inspiration. Check out our listings below to see what we've done so far and what's coming up.We do not keep any money at all that is raised during our events.
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, we have very minimal expenses to cover. After that, it's all profits directly to the good people preserving the dignity of our nation through their hard work!Dining for a Difference, March 6-9

We are so proud and excited that Run for All was the success that it was. Our neighbors and friends banded together and stood up for civil liberties in a way that showed everyone who we are and that we will stand up for what we believe in. With about 300 participants and $6,000 raised for the ACLU, we had one amazing day! Boston Neighborhood Network filmed the event and produced this segment highlighting us. Click here to see it
