Request for Ideas Collaborate Boston is an incentive-driven competition that supports collaborative efforts to create thriving people and vibrant places in our community.  Each year, the Boston Foundation makes $100,000 in grants to collaborations focused on achieving specific outcomes for the people and/or the places that make up our community.  The outcomes are announced at the start of each competition.  From 11 applications, this year, the Foundation made four $25,000 grants to resident-led collaborations that are focused on strengthening the Fairmount Corridor neighborhoods of Dorchester, Hyde Park, Mattapan and/or Roxbury.
