Donations are fully tax deductible when no service is received in exchange.
(Donations for performances, classes and training are not tax deductible for that reason).

Not only the U.S. but now Massachusetts has a new charitable contributions deduction available to all MA taxpayers, whether you itemize deductions on your federal return or not. Just keep track of your contributions and report them on the state tax return you file for 2023 and beyond. Your donations will be deducted from your taxable Massachusetts income. This deduction is universal, and permanent, so you can utilize it every year going forward.

Let us know if you know a specific group you would love to support us to work with.
Or pick one of the constituencies or issues below to support sustaining our work with:

  • Active bystander intervention training
  • People with disabilities
  • Conversations around death and dying
  • People formerly incarcerated & dealing with recovery issues
  • People in hospice and caregivers
  • Cancer survivors and family members
  • Local immigrant groups
  • Seniors
  • LGBTQ intergenerational dialogue
  • Veterans who are homeless
