Fish Family Foundation
The Fish Family Foundation is a private family foundation located in Boston, Massachusetts. The Foundation was established in 1999 by Lawrence K. and Atsuko Fish to formalize the family’s tradition of responsibility to improve its community and to share the joy of giving with future generations. The foundation is dedicated to meeting the human service challenges of lower income individuals and families working to improve the qualities of their lives. The Foundation’s giving is guided by values that the trustees believe are key to carrying out their goal of fulfilling a responsibility to improve the community. The family’s Japanese and Jewish heritage has instilled in the trustees a commitment to cultural diversity and a responsibility to encourage cross cultural understanding and exchange. The trustees carry out the foundation’s mission in a manner that supports trustee unity, continuing education and community involvement for trustees, and a consensus style approach to decision-making.
