GreenLight Fund’s support continues in Massachusetts

July 7, 2010

The leaders of the GreenLight Fund portfolio organizations pause for a quick photo at this year’s Emerald Evening. From left are Matthew Stone of Youth Villages, Molly Greene of Peer Health Exchange, Donna DiFillippo of Raising a Reader, Imari Paris Jeffries of Friends of the Children, and Margaret Hall and John Simon of the GreenLight Fund.

In 2008, the GreenLight Fund, a Boston-based venture philanthropy, identified Youth Villages’ Transitional Living program as an innovative, results-oriented nonprofit program. After being selected as the GreenLight Fund’s fourth investment and receiving $800,000 in financial support, the Transitional Living program was introduced to Massachusetts and exclusively featured at the GreenLight Fund’s three signature events.


To mark its fifth anniversary this year, rather than investing in a new organization, the GreenLight Fund is showcasing the positive outcomes of current investments while raising additional funds to be split among current portfolio organizations. The Transitional Living program has already received an additional $88,000.
