About Free Fun Fridays
“Our Free Fun Fridays offer visitors no-cost admission to many of the most treasured cultural venues in Massachusetts. This program was created to increase access and enrichment opportunities for children and families throughout Massachusetts during the summer months. Every Friday, from the end of June through the end of August, multiple sites are open for free. We reach out to schools, veterans groups, libraries, seniors centers, and many other community organizations to ensure that everyone knows that they are also welcome.” (www.highlandstreet.org)
About Highland Street Foundation
The Highland Street Foundation was established in 1989 by David J. McGrath, Jr., the founder and owner of TAD Resources International, Inc. David passed away in May 1995 and TAD was sold to Adecco, the world’s largest temporary help company in 1997. In his lifetime, David and his wife JoAnn contributed to a number of varied and important charitable causes through their personal philanthropy. With the sale of TAD, the Highland Street Foundation received the majority of its current endowment.
Today, JoAnn and her five children, who make up the Highland Street Foundation board, continue the traditions that she started with David. Since 1989, the McGrath Family and the Highland Street Foundation have contributed more than $200 million to hundreds of remarkable non-profit organizations.
