Initiatives

Helping Corey's Kids

The Corey C. Griffin Foundation is focused on making strategic investments to improve the lives and opportunities for youth - whether it be through supporting the families of pediatric patients at Boston Children’s Hospital or Franciscan Children's Hospital, providing scholarships to students at Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy, or sending underprivileged youth to the Ron Burton Training Village, these initiatives touch the lives of “Corey’s Kids” at crucial times in their lives. We believe changing the trajectory of a child’s life will make profound impact to not only their lives as adults but society as a whole.

Other Initiatives

Franciscan Children's Hospital - Kids' Healthy Minds Initiative

The Corey C Griffin Foundation partnered with the Franciscan Children's Hospital to battle the largest mental health crisis in history, with suicide being the second-leading cause of death for youth aged 10-19. KHMI brings together the community to address this startling reality and ensure that the most innovative and proven approaches to mental health are accessible to those most in need. Sessions help adults and caregivers identify youth mental illness and begin breaking down the negative stigma often associated with mental illness. This program is making a huge difference in the lives of youth in crisis.

Corey C. Griffin Scholarship

The Corey C. Griffin college scholarship is awarded annually to two high school seniors who most closely exemplify Corey’s “never quit” attitude, his passionate support and leadership for causes in which he believed, and his philosophy, put simply: finding good in others, lending a helping hand for those in need, and having the courage to create change.

Feed Our Neighbors

During the unprecedented times of COVID-19, communities come together to help those in need. The Feed Our Neighbors initiative is a significant example. Working with the Boston Police Department's Bureau of Community Engagement and the Boston Police Activities League (PAL), we have been able to quickly and efficiently provide grocery gift cards for meals and supplies to low-income and food-insecure families. Families, in most cases, have children who qualified for free meals at school, but without the school meals, and with summer programming for children in question, these families need assistance with providing family nutrition.
