Background Element

United Way of Massachusetts Bay is helping reshape the way philanthropic efforts in Greater Boston can meet the needs of communities and organizations like Nurtury. Access to high-quality early education and care is an essential component to ensure families are able to thrive, and yet for far too many, it is out of reach. This support will help change that. We are proud to partner with United Way on a New Way Forward to make progress in realizing economic justice for historically marginalized communities.

Nurtury Early Education was selected as one of 124 new partners of United Way of Massachusetts Bay, a recognition of our organization’s potential to advance an economically-just region where access to financial wellbeing is universal and prosperity is shared across race and ethnicity. We’re excited to play a role in expanding access to high-quality, affordable early education programs in Greater Boston. Together with United Way of Massachusetts Bay, we won’t just be addressing the symptoms of poverty, we will be changing the systems and conditions that create barriers for individuals and families. We are looking forward to a future where everyone is empowered to achieve financial wellbeing and where our communities are even more vibrant, abundant and equitable.

Nurtury CEO & President Laura Perille is joined by United Way of Mass Bay President & CEO, Bob Giannino, EEC Commissioner, Amy Kershaw, and Sally Fuller of Strategies for Children at the launch of United Way’s new impact strategy at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
