Generous. Results-Oriented. Crucial.

The Steppingstone Foundation charges no tuition for its programs and relies on the generosity of individual donors, as well as corporate and foundation funders, to accomplish its transformative work.

Each year, hundreds of individuals and philanthropic organizations lend their resources and expertise to advance our mission. Their generosity yields powerful results: 90 percent of Scholars who finish our academic program gain admission to a selective school. Virtually all of them go on to graduate from high school. Eight out of 10 earn a four-year degree by the time they turn 25.

A highly-rated nonprofit, The Steppingstone Foundation earned Root Cause’s top “High Performer” rating in 2014 and has been designated a trusted partner by Guidestar. To become more involved or learn more about supporting our work, visit our Ways to Give page or contact Kate Wood, Executive Vice President of Advancement, at 617-423-6300 ext. 238 or
