The Boston Foundation is a major philanthropic funder, very supportive of the Boston-based after-school ventures, which have a meta-structure of support, of sorts, called After School & Beyond. Wellesley conducts research on existing program viability and needs, and I think After School & Beyond works with Wellesley on that, but I need to refresh my memory on that.

etc..., esp. compared to cambridge, newton, topsfield... OMG this speaks of
money... who don't show up on this list. the list is data, imho. I'll
look into who is the Boston Foundation, as a chat researcher is wont to do.
