Mission, Our Name & Beneficiaries
The Foundation To Be Named Later
was launched in Spring of 2005 by Paul Epstein, a social worker in the Brookline Public School system, and his twin brother, former Red Sox Executive Vice President and General Manager and current Chicago Cubs President, Theo Epstein.
The mission of FTBNL is to improve the world through education, leadership and the healthy development of youth and families.
We raise funds and awareness
for non-profit agencies, working on the front lines, serving disadvantaged youth in the Greater Boston area. We invest in programs that teach leadership, education and healthy development of families and send highly under resourced young people with great potential to college.

The Story Behind Our Name:
With so much baseball and music going on and so little time, we decide to name our foundation after the MLB trade term: a player to be named later!
The new Peter Gammons/FTBNL College Scholarship presented by RISO allows high-needs but high-potential Boston area High School students a four-year scholarship to the college of their choice.
FTBNL is honored by the support of a dedicated network of civically minded
corporations, foundations, and individuals. The Hot Stove Cool Music Series is the signature event of FTBNL – celebrating Music, Baseball and Giving Back.
Founded by Peter Gammons, bi-annually, this community gathers to generate significant resources to advance the Foundation's mission and to share the inspiring impact of the Foundation's portfolio of non-profit partners.
They are agents of change. They work to create a better world. They are:
