Since 1997, the Phyllis & Jerome Lyle Rappaport Foundation has actively promoted the growth of leadership and innovative thinking in the areas of public policy, neurologic disease and mental health, and the arts. It has done so by supporting individuals and institutions in the Greater Boston area in the quest to improve the quality of life and catalyze new generations of collaborative leaders.
Our mission is to improve Boston’s regional governance by creating new ways for scholars, students, officials and civic leaders to join in dynamic approaches to solve difficult problems.
