The Boston Police Foundation was formed in 1993 to provide private financial support for critically needed resources to the Boston Police Department, the oldest police department in the country. Our supporters help fund special equipment, advanced training, new technology, officer safety and wellness, and youth outreach programs not covered in its annual budget.

The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation was established in 2004, in loving memory of Gloria Gemma, two years after this wife and mother-of-nine lost her courageous fight against breast cancer. A devout woman, Gloria instilled in her children strong family values and the importance of helping people in need.
In 2008, the Foundation opened its Resource and Wellness Center, and Gloria’s eldest daughter, Maria Gemma-Corcelli was named the executive director. Through the tireless efforts of Maria and her dedicated staff, the Foundation has developed and implemented numerous programs and services for people living with breast cancer.
The Foundation has a family atmosphere where hugs are plentiful and emotions are never judged. We are here to help all people who are living with breast cancer, which includes patients, survivors, family members, and friends. We want you to know that you are not alone, and we are here to help.
