The Boston Foundation (web) has setup an "MLK Boston Fund" which will be used to raise money for the memorial. The fund started with a $1M donation from Paul English, and we're looking to raise an additional $4M for the project.
We are seek additional funding from other philanthropists, Boston companies and nonprofits, schools and churches, and the general public. We want the donor base to be as wide as possible, so that this becomes a monument for all people.
Note: The Boston Foundation can only accept gifts of $50 or more. If you want to give less than $50, we are going to setup a separate fund for this, please stay tuned.
