Many employers have matching gift programs to support the interests of their employees and to demonstrate their commitment to charitable organizations in their region or community. Ask your human resources or personnel department for a matching gift form to enclose with your contribution to us.

Stock Donation: 

If you are interested in making a gift via stock donation please contact Susan Grabski at or 978-686-9230. A gift of stock may provide more benefits than a cash gift.
