Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Merger of Environmental Groups

A generation ago, Boston Harbor was miserably polluted, its 34 neglected harbor islands home to garbage and abandoned military bases. Thanks to decades of hard work led by the Boston Harbor Islands Alliance (BHIA) and The Boston Harbor Association (TBHA), the harbor and waterfront are now thriving, including a new Boston Harbor Island National Park. To build on their collective successes and meet new challenges brought on by sea level rise, BHIA and TBHA merged into a new organization. A SeaChange-Lodestar Fund grant supported the merger.
