Featured Donor of the Month

Barr Foundation

Barr Foundation

LISC is proud to recognize the continued generosity of the
Barr Foundation. The Foundation’s significant grant commitments have helped to sustain a range of our efforts in Boston and across Massachusetts since 2009, including the Massachusetts Green Retrofit Initiative and a fund to increase the amount of affordable housing in close proximity to public transportation.

The Barr Foundation’s most recent grant continues the Green Retrofit Initiative, which helps owners and managers of affordable housing integrate energy efficiency into their management practices to reduce costs and greenhouse gas emissions. We expect to help retrofit 3,000 units of affordable housing across the state during the grant period.

LISC is grateful for the Barr Foundation’s important partnership.

About LISC Fundraising

Community development is a dramatic example of what can happen when the goals and resources of the public, private and nonprofit sectors align.

Over the past 32 years, LISC has invested more than $12.9 billion for community development activities that build affordable homes, retail and community facilities and create new jobs. More than 3,100 donors, investors and lenders have contributed to LISC.
