Following Corey's tragic passing on August 16th, 2014, the Griffin family and close friends founded the Corey C. Griffin Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
Given his incredible passion for life and uncommon dedication to philanthropy, it was not difficult to map out the guiding principles of the foundation: improving the lives of primarily Boston-area children through strategic partnerships with the city’s leading educational and healthcare institutions, with an emphasis on faith-based initiatives. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to succeed, irrespective of their financial or health circumstances; our partnerships are helping make this goal a reality.
In large part due to Corey’s incredibly wide network of friends and close acquaintances, the Corey C. Griffin Foundation has grown considerably in six years. The impact of the Foundation’s financial support can be seen across dozens of carefully selected partnerships, with children across the Greater Boston area benefiting on a daily basis. Known lovingly as ‘Corey’s Kids’, it is through these children that Corey Griffin’s legacy will live on forever.
Corey was instrumental in his 27 years in setting the direction and voice of the Foundation that would be founded after his tragic passing. Learn more here.
