$1M From Harold Brown to West End House
The Hamilton Company Charitable Foundation, created by The Hamilton Co founder and CEO Harold Brown, has pledged $1M to the 109-year-old West End House in Allston to support the renovation and construction of a two-story, 5k SF addition to its existing space. The renovations will deliver a performance space, a teen wing for academic and college prep plus social activities, a larger fitness facility and an expanded café. The donation from one of the region's largest independent multifamily landlords will also help to expand other West End House programs for at-risk Boston youth.
