Community Conversations: Sister to Sister greatly appreciates all contributions to our work and would like to recognize the following individuals, foundations, companies, and governments for their donations and grants. Together, we are committed to supporting women of color in Cambridge in fostering dialogue about health and healthcare.

As the only charitable foundation focused on all of Cambridge, CCF works collaboratively with organizations and people committed to making a difference in the vitality of our community. This rich engagement informs us of our community’s greatest needs and the best resources with which to address them. We use that knowledge to provide support to over 180 area nonprofits, to convene innovative and effective groups, to connect donors to the community issues they care about most, and to guide our grant giving to the tune of over $1 million annually.
