Continuing the extraordinary legacy of Dr. Bob Moses, civil rights leader and educator.

The Moses Family and the Cambridge Community Foundation are honored to announce a new field of interest fund, the Bob Moses Fund for Education and Organizing. This Fund at the Foundation was created in close partnership with the Moses Family to memorialize the extraordinary legacy of Dr. Bob Moses – an inspirational educator, civil rights leader, mentor, father, and father-figure to many.

The fund serves three primary purposes:

  • Invest in people, organizations, and initiatives whose work embodies the spirit and work of Dr. Bob Moses
  • Nurture a living legacy that remains in dialogue with ideas and questions Bob raised for himself, young people, and America
  • Grow a network of organizations, initiatives, and people working in his spirit

The fund launched with two inaugural grants of $75,000 to movement builders who embody the community-focused leadership and spirit of Bob Moses: Shinnecock artist, Jeremy Dennis, and Turkey Creek historian and preservationist, Derrick Evans. The fund also awarded two $15,000 grants to support the work of local grass-roots movement builders – Emmanuel Mervil, founder of Everybody Gotta Eat, and Deondre Starling, founder of Scholarships Before Athletes.

The fund also supports the Bob Moses Speaker Series curated by Dr. Janet Moses in partnership with MIT university and experts to further explore the impact of caste on three major systems in this country – education, voting, and incarceration.

We thank you for joining us in this pivotal moment in honoring and carrying forward the legacy of Dr. Bob Moses.

Thank you for honoring Dr. Bob Moses with a gift. The Bob Moses Fund for Education and Organizing is a Fund at the Cambridge Community Foundation.
