New for 2019

Charity Partner Program

Bringing a new twist of altruism to Boston’s First Night, we can all make 2019 our best year yet. Now’s the time!

New for 2019, First Night Boston is thrilled to introduce its Charity Partner Program. In its inaugural year, this program will select several area non-profit organizations that are united in helping and supporting a particular cause. This year, the four groups selected are all rooted in supporting and empowering women in our neighborhoods.

The selected charities for this inaugural program include Boston-based Project Hope, which serves low-income women and families with education, workforce training, job placement, housing assistance, and an emergency family shelter, the Center for Women and Enterprise, which is dedicated to helping New England women and veterans start and grow their businesses, #HereForTheMusic, a campaign created by non-profit organization Calling all Crows that works to prevent sexual violence in the live music industry through training, policy consulting, and education, and Girls at Work, Inc., which, through power tools and one woodworking project at a time, empowers girls to build confidence to face current and future life challenges.
