About Us

All proceeds from the Greater Boston Bigfoot Research Institute directly benefit the free student programs offered by 826 Boston, a nonprofit writing, tutoring, and publishing organization where students in grades K-12 and beyond can share their stories, amplify their voices, and develop as leaders in school and in life. 826 Boston serves more than 4,000 students both in and out of school across the city of Boston. These programs range from after-school tutoring and in-class support for teachers, to creative writing workshops, storytelling and bookmaking field trips, and college essay support.
