Over the last eight months, we have been conducting our inaugural Design Mentorship Program in partnership with American Student Assistance (ASA). Students from Watertown Middle School have been meeting with mentors from Sasaki (both in person and, as of late due to the pandemic, virtually), who have been opening students’ eyes and minds to the world of design through hands-on activities, virtual reality, software programs, and more. Middle school students have been envisioning and designing what their ideal learning environment would look like through their own creativity and through a design lens.

We are thrilled to announce our new Design Mentorship Program in partnership with American Student Assistance (ASA). This eight-month program will expose students from Watertown Middle School to the world of design through hands-on activities, computer programs, and more, with guidance from Sasaki designers. Middle school students will spend time on our Chase Mills campus envisioning and designing what their ideal learning environment would look like.

The Cambridge Public Health Department’s Health Promotion Mini-Grant Program will award up to $25,000 in total funding to projects that promote healthy eating, physical activity, or youth mental health.

Eligible groups for mini-grants include community organizations, schools, businesses, garden and farm programs, and government agencies that serve Cambridge.

A project proposal must address one of the categories below and is only eligible for one type of mini-grant (i.e., healthy eating/physical activity or youth mental health) per funding cycle:

  • Healthy Eating and Physical Activity. $1,000 mini-grants are available for projects that promote healthy eating and/or physical activity in children and adults. Up to 13 projects will be funded. Last year’s winning projects included a bike giveaway event, cooking and gardening activities for children, outdoor adventure activities for youth, and a survey of food pantry clients. See the full list of 2022 Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Mini-Grant Winners.
  • Youth Mental Health and Wellness. $2,000 mini-grants are available for projects that promote mental health and wellness in Cambridge youth, with a focus on youth age 12-18. Up to six projects will be funded. Last year’s winning projects included a stress reduction program for middle schoolers, mentoring for middle school camp counselors, and trauma training for adults who work with youth. See full list of 2022 Youth Mental Health Mini-Grant Winners.

The health department launched the healthy eating and physical activity mini-grants in 2011 and the youth mental health mini-grants in 2021.

The mini-grants are competitive. All applications are reviewed by representatives from the Cambridge Public Health Department, the Hideo Sasaki Foundation, and other organizations and groups.

“This is the first year we’re administering these two popular awards programs together,” said Josefine Wendel, who oversees population health initiatives at the Cambridge Public Health Department. “We’re excited about partnering with the Sasaki Foundation and expanding the number of projects we can support due to increased funding.”

The mini-grant program is primarily funded by the Cambridge Public Health Department, with a $5,000 contribution this year from the Hideo Sasaki Foundation, a Boston nonprofit. Starting this year, the Hideo Sasaki Foundation will serve as the fiscal agent for the mini-grant program.

The mini-grant guidelines and application are available on the Cambridge Public Health Department website: www.cambridgepublichealth.org/services/mini-grants

The deadline for submission is Tuesday, April 4, 2023.

To learn more about the mini-grant program, contact Dawn Olcott (+1 617 665 3809) at dolcott@cambridgepublichealth.org or Sarah Lincoln (+1 617 665 3874) at salincoln@cambridgepublichealth.org.

Cambridge Public Health Department

The Cambridge Public Health Department (CPHD) protects and promotes the health of everyone in Cambridge through services, information, policies, and regulations. Main focus areas are communicable disease prevention and control, emergency preparedness and community resilience, environmental health, epidemiology, population health initiatives, regulatory enforcement, and school health.

The Hideo Sasaki Foundation

The Hideo Sasaki Foundation believes design has the power to address the most urgent challenges facing us, from social equity to environmental resilience. Design is an agent of change. And yet, access to design—for communities who need it the most—is often limited. Making change requires collective impact. At the intersection of philanthropy, education, and community, the Hideo Sasaki Foundation is committed to advancing the value of design, inviting diverse partners to co-create change.

A project proposal must address one of the categories below and is only eligible for one type of mini-grant (i.e., healthy eating/physical activity or youth mental health) per funding cycle:

  • Healthy Eating and Physical Activity. $1,000 mini-grants are available for projects that promote healthy eating and/or physical activity in children and adults. Up to 13 projects will be funded. Last year’s winning projects included a bike giveaway event, cooking and gardening activities for children, outdoor adventure activities for youth, and a survey of food pantry clients. See the full list of 2022 Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Mini-Grant Winners.
  • Youth Mental Health and Wellness. $2,000 mini-grants are available for projects that promote mental health and wellness in Cambridge youth, with a focus on youth age 12-18. Up to six projects will be funded. Last year’s winning projects included a stress reduction program for middle schoolers, mentoring for middle school camp counselors, and trauma training for adults who work with youth. See full list of 2022 Youth Mental Health Mini-Grant Winners.

The health department launched the healthy eating and physical activity mini-grants in 2011 and the youth mental health mini-grants in 2021.

The mini-grants are competitive. All applications are reviewed by representatives from the Cambridge Public Health Department, the Hideo Sasaki Foundation, and other organizations and groups.

“This is the first year we’re administering these two popular awards programs together,” said Josefine Wendel, who oversees population health initiatives at the Cambridge Public Health Department. “We’re excited about partnering with the Sasaki Foundation and expanding the number of projects we can support due to increased funding.”

The mini-grant program is primarily funded by the Cambridge Public Health Department, with a $5,000 contribution this year from the Hideo Sasaki Foundation, a Boston nonprofit. Starting this year, the Hideo Sasaki Foundation will serve as the fiscal agent for the mini-grant program.

The mini-grant guidelines and application are available on the Cambridge Public Health Department website: www.cambridgepublichealth.org/services/mini-grants

The deadline for submission is Tuesday, April 4, 2023.

Cambridge Public Health Department

The Cambridge Public Health Department (CPHD) protects and promotes the health of everyone in Cambridge through services, information, policies, and regulations. Main focus areas are communicable disease prevention and control, emergency preparedness and community resilience, environmental health, epidemiology, population health initiatives, regulatory enforcement, and school health.

The Hideo Sasaki Foundation

The Hideo Sasaki Foundation believes design has the power to address the most urgent challenges facing us, from social equity to environmental resilience. Design is an agent of change. And yet, access to design—for communities who need it the most—is often limited. Making change requires collective impact. At the intersection of philanthropy, education, and community, the Hideo Sasaki Foundation is committed to advancing the value of design, inviting diverse partners to co-create change.

Events

2023 Design Grants Mixer

April 6, 2023

Join us for our in-person Design Grants Mixer. This event will foster connections between prospective applicants seeking team members to apply for the Sasaki Foundation Design Grants in response to our 2023 call for proposals.

What we do

The Sasaki Foundation is committed to empowering communities by tackling the issue of inequity in design. The Foundation works with communities, civic leaders, practitioners, educators, and others to support research and programs that diversify the voices involved in shaping the built environment.

1

Research & Experimentation

Complex challenges—such as climate change adaptation, affordable housing, mobility and transit access, and community building—require interdisciplinary approaches by a diverse set of stakeholders.

2

Community Learning & Engagement

Meaningfully engaging the public in the design process offers the greatest opportunity for success in sustaining communities.

3

Professional Practice & Growth

Industries that have a diverse talent pool and an inclusive creative process are the most successful. A thriving design industry needs a pipeline of diverse, talented, and passionate practitioners.

History

In 2000, the Hideo Sasaki Foundation was established by Sasaki, a multidisciplinary design firm, and included a bequest from the family of Hideo Sasaki, an internationally renowned landscape architect who was admired for his teaching, critical abilities, and multidisciplinary approach to design. Today, the Sasaki Foundation carries forward Hideo Sasaki’s legacy by blurring the boundaries that separate practice and research, academia and industry, the profession and the public to co-create change to shape the built environment.
