Statement of Purpose
The mission of the Roxbury Highland Charitable Foundation is to strengthen the communities of Jamaica Plain and Roxbury by broadening and enriching the cultural and educational opportunities and expanding the health services available to the residents. The Foundation seeks to fulfill its mission by making a limited number of grants each year to carefully selected new and ongoing programs serving children and youth, supporting education, promoting the arts, and enhancing community health care.
The principle source of funds for these grants will be regular donations from the Roxbury Highland Bank of Jamaica Plain, whose directors have established the Foundation. Since these funds will necessarily be limited, the Foundation will seek to support programs and organizations in the community where relatively small amounts will have a significant impact on people and institutions. These may include established programs of proven value and well planned new ventures of outstanding promise.
While the Foundation's Board of Directors will make final decisions regarding the recipients and sizes of grants, the Advisory Board, a diverse group of knowledgeable and respected citizens of Jamaica Plain and Roxbury, will consider all grant proposals and make recommendations to the Board of Directors. The Foundation's intention is to allocate its resources to purposes which reflect the diverse values, experiences, and needs of the people of the community.
