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) nonprofit, grant-making organization.
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 three 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 benefitting on a daily basis. Known lovingly as ‘Corey’s Kids’, it is through these children that Corey Griffin’s legacy will live on forever.
