Our theme, Building a More Equitable Boston, is a call-to-action to ensure that young people have the resources and opportunities they need to flourish and to dismantle the systemic racism and poverty that stands in their way.  Students and Trinity Boston Foundation staff will share their experiences and the ongoing work to drive change in Boston that your generosity makes possible.

At this year’s event, we will honor Bill and Julie Thompson in recognition of their considerable and longstanding support of Trinity Boston Foundation and its programs. Bill Thompson, the founding chair of our Board of Directors, with his wife, Julie, have been generous benefactors to many educational and cultural institutions in Boston. We honor them this night for their decades of commitment to the youth of our City, and to Building a More Equitable Boston. We will also recognize Chrystal Kornegay, Executive Director of MassHousing, whose passion for creating programs that result in stronger, fairer communities for modest- income working families are helping to build a more equitable Commonwealth.

The Bostonians for Youth Gala raises funds to support over 575 young people each year with programming focused on social and emotional wellness and learning that is essential to life success. It will also support our partnerships with schools, government agencies and community organizations across Boston that together serve more than 15,000 young people.
