About Us

All proceeds from the Greater Boston Bigfoot Research Institute directly benefit the free student programs offered by 826 Boston, a nonprofit writing and tutoring center for underserved students ages 6 to 18. 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.

826 Boston is part of 826 National, co-founded by writer Dave Eggers and educator Ninive Calegari. Please visit our other stores:
