Corporate and Foundation Partners

As the largest day shelter in Greater Boston and all of Massachusetts, St. Francis House relies on support from corporations, foundations, local businesses, and community groups, to meet the needs of more than 7,000 guests every year.

We pride ourselves on creating mutually beneficial partnerships which not only help fulfill our mission, but also achieve supporters’ goals around philanthropy, volunteerism, employee engagement, and recognition.

Here are just a few ways you can support our mission:


Give:  Make a financial gift in support of our life-saving services via grants, sponsorship of our annual events, workplace and employee giving campaigns, or make an in-kind gift by holding a donation drive for items our guests need most.

Volunteer: Join us on-site, meet our guests, and see the impact of your support first-hand by donating your time. Volunteer opportunities include helping prepare and serve meals for guests, participating in resume review and job interview workshops, distributing clothing and essential items, special skills-based service projects, and more.

Advocate: Network, collaborate, and be recognized alongside other supporters by joining our Young Professionals and Founders’ Societies, attend events, highlight your support on social media, or ask a member of our team to discuss St. Francis House with you and your colleagues.

We are proud to partner with a number of leading corporations and foundations from across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and country, including:
