The Longwood Collective is a non-profit organization that provides programs and services in Boston’s Longwood Medical and Academic Area (LMA). The organization was established in 1972 as MASCO (Medical Academic and Scientific Community Organization) to address the area challenges such as parking and traffic. Soon, leaders of several local institutions decided to establish a group that would transcend organizational boundaries and focus on the best interests of the area as a whole.

The 11 founding members pledged to work together to solve “problems related to inefficient land use, parking, traffic, and duplication of services...” For over a half-century, The Longwood Collective has promoted a greater sense of community among our member organizations and offered programs and services that are more efficiently and effectively developed through collaboration.
