We have made long-term investments to ensure our partners’ future viability and the future fulfillment of our mission by supporting programs at Simmons College, Harvard University, and the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA).

The Barbara Lee Family Foundation supports two nonpartisan political training programs for women, the Barbara Lee Women in U.S. Politics Training Program and Lecture Series Endowment Fund at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation Intern Fellowship Program at Simmons College. Each helps build the pipeline of future women candidates and elected leaders by giving women hands-on experience and training.

As the vibrant home of contemporary art in Boston, the ICA is committed to showcasing the work of women contemporary artists. Our endowment supports the museum’s efforts to add works by women contemporary artists to its permanent collection.
