Our Vision: Through ongoing community collaboration, we will create equity for all.
Boston organizations committed to overcoming inequities work in isolation. Resources go unused, seats go unfilled, and families fall farther behind in a disconnected system.
Union Capital Boston (UCB) collaborates across sectors in order to effectively connect low-income individuals and families to local resources, spark continual family and neighborhood engagement, and increase institution mission fulfillment.
We value the critical yet uncompensated work of community building, civic and school engagement, personal health promotion, and child enrichment by incentivizing time.

Value the unpaid but necessary work of community building, civic and school engagement, and child enrichment by incentivizing time. Gift cards are earned based on participation
