Boston – The Boston Foundation has awarded nine grants, totaling $1.6 million as part of its Success Boston Initiative’s Boston Coaching for Completion program.

These funds will mobilize public and private sector resources to replicate and expand the Success Boston coaching model to support up to 1000 graduates of the Boston Public Schools, helping students gain entry to college and helping them remain in school through graduation.

Funds for the grants were drawn from a $2.7 million investment in the Boston Foundation made in September 2014 by the Corporation for National and Community Service’s (CNCS) Social Innovation Fund (SIF). Social Innovation Fund investments, announced at the SIF’s Annual Grantee Convening, in Washington D.C. last fall will help grow the impact of innovative, community-based solutions that have compelling evidence of improving the lives of people in low-income communities throughout the United States.
