Welcome to NH Business Review’s second annual Charitable Giving Guide, featuring profiles of some of New Hampshire’s most essential nonprofit organizations. The assistance and support they offer – whether it be health services, housing, support for children and families or meeting basic nutritional needs – are crucial to the well-being of the entire state. This directory provides a snapshot of the crucial, tireless work done by New Hampshire’s nonprofit sector, which plays a pivotal role in our state’s economy. The organizations that comprise it make the Granite State a better place to live and work. We hope that as you read through this directory you are as impressed and gratified as we are by the extraordinary organizations profiled in these pages.

In the end, the goal of this publication is to give you additional insight into their operations – and perhaps inspire you to contribute your time, talent or money to support the many New Hampshire nonprofits that strive every day to strengthen our community and make it better.

A letter from new hampshire charitable foundation

I

’ve had a great New Hampshire summer. Swimming at Silver Lake surrounded by green hillsides, protected through conservation. Marching with giant puppets in the annual Peterborough Children and the Arts parade. Watching kids do their homework and build a website at a Boys and Girls Club. Hearing our daughter, Daisy, sing in the Grand

Monadnock Youth Choir and seeing her dance at MOCO Arts in Keene. I may even have met a future President — a brilliant young woman who is a City Year mentor in Manchester’s poorest elementary school. What’s the common thread? All of these experiences were created by nonprofit organizations and the donors who support them. The charitable sector works for everyone — and I mean everyone — in New Hampshire. Nonprofits not only feed the hungry and house the homeless and help our kids thrive, they also protect our cultural and natural resources and make the arts available to all of us and help drive our state’s economy. We are all the beneficiaries of their good works. A lot of us come to New Hampshire or we stay in New Hampshire because of our love for independence. It is part of the character of this place. But independence, we discover, requires a community effort. Nonprofits are the definition of “community effort.” So think about your summer, your fall, your winter — and think about the nonprofits that improve your quality of life in New Hampshire. And be part of the community effort that supports them, as they make all of our lives better.

A letter from NH Center for nonprofits

H Kathleen D. Reardon Chief Executive Officer NH Center for Nonprofits

ave you ever thought about how nonprofits have shaped your own life? From the hospital you were born in, to summer camps and afterschool programs that provided safe places to grow, the animal shelter where you found your furry best friend, to the theatres and museums that you enjoy today, nonprofit organizations are essential to all of our lives. Here in New Hampshire, we rely heavily upon our nonprofit organizations to address an astounding array of issues and to support the quality of life we treasure. We are fortunate to have a strong and resilient nonprofit sector in our state, with organizations like the ones featured in this guide that are developing innovative, cost-effective approaches to respond to the needs of our citizens and communities. Nonprofits are a powerful force in New Hampshire’s economy, contributing $11 billion of the state’s GDP and employing one in seven of the state’s workers.

I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver. ­ 4

How to Create a Personal and Strategic Plan for Giving Back Jenifer Cannon Director of Development and Senior Philanthropy Advisor New Hampshire Charitable Foundation

L

ast November, a generous couple came to me with two enormous three-ring binders (and I am talking “did-you-bring-those-inon-a-forklift?” enormous). The binders were straining at the rings — stuffed with appeals for worthy causes and nonprofits. Animals, the arts, hospitals, veterans groups, environmental organizations, organizations helping LGBTQ youth, museums, public broadcasting, organizations fighting poverty. This couple seemed to be on every mailing list in existence. These folks are extraordinarily generous. They got on those lists for a reason, and they actually did want to be on many of them. But now they were overwhelmed. When the leaves turn in New Hampshire, the requests from hundreds of good organizations doing great work start to pour in. There’s a good reason for that: In the U.S., about 40 percent of all giving happens in the fourth quarter of the year.

GETTING STARTED

This couple, who do most of their giving through a donor-advised fund at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, had collected the solicitations dutifully and organized them into binders by types of service provided. But that had not helped them much. They were daunted by the sheer magnitude of the need, the competing asks (all of which they felt obligated to answer), the absurd notion of prioritizing one critical service over another. The weight of the world was in those binders. They needed a plan for strategic philanthropy, not just a checkbook and a roll of stamps. If you have $200 to give or $200,000 to give, having a personal plan for giving is always a good idea. We put the binders out of sight, at least temporarily. And we talked about what mattered to them. We focused on two basic questions: What matters most to you, and how can you make the biggest impact?

The conversation became pretty specific and totally impassioned. They talked excitedly about gifts they had made in the past. Scientific research mattered to them, and they had helped buy some pretty important tools for researchers at the University of New Hampshire Shoals Marine Lab. Helping LGBTQ youth really mattered to them. Medicaid expansion, historic preservation, health care for poor folks, protecting the Great Bay watershed. We talked about organizations doing great work in New Hampshire. And they made their plan: Deciding how much they would give, learning about nonprofits doing good work and distributing gifts in a way that was deliberate and designed to have the maximum effect. When they were done, they knew they were making a real difference in areas that they felt were critically important to our communities. And they felt great about their giving.

As you think about your own giving at the end of this year, here are five ideas to help sort through the possibilities for where to give, and how to give for maximum effect:

 If you plan to give a substantial

amount, talk to your financial and philanthropic advisors. Discuss what assets to give and the different giving vehicles that are available.

T  hink about what matters most

to you. Try asking yourself this question: If I could spend two weeks volunteering for any cause or nonprofit, what would it be? Go around the supper table, and have the whole family answer the question. It will make for great conversation, and the answers will provide some pretty good guidance

for your giving. Save the solicitations that come in — and then organize them according to your (and your family’s) answers to this question.

 Do some research (this guide is

a good start). What organizations in your community are working on the issues that matter most to you? Do you have a clear sense of what your donations to the organization will support?

C  onsider, if you have multiple issue areas that you want to support, choosing one or two each year and focusing your

research and giving there, and then moving on to different areas of focus next year.

G  et the family involved. Giving together is a great way for families to share interests and values. When children are involved in giving (and volunteering) — even at very modest levels — they learn the joy and importance of becoming contributing and involved members of their communities. And when children learn by doing, they are far more likely to carry on their family’s philanthropic traditions.

Jenifer Cannon is the director of development and a senior philanthropy advisor at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. She works with individuals, families and businesses and their advisors to help them achieve their philanthropic goals. You can reach Jen at 800-464-6641 ext.261 or jhc@nhcf.org.

The Weeks family, L-R: John, Matt Gail, Pat,Jack, Andrew and Tim.

L

Giving back is in the Weeks family DNA

eonard Weeks came to the New World as an indentured servant more than a century before American colonists fought to make a nation of their own. His son Samuel’s home, in Greenland, is now a museum. John Wingate Weeks, a descendant of Leonard, gave his name to the Weeks Act of 1911 — which created the White Mountain National Forest. And then there was the ice cream. John “Jack” Weeks, Jr., another of Leonard’s descendants, grew up in Laconia and Gilford. His father started a business in 1930 delivering raw milk door-to-door in a Model A Ford. In one generation that business would grow into Weeks Dairy, the state’s largest milk and ice cream processor and distributor — and Jack would become its president. The Weeks Dairy Bar in Laconia, which opened in 1947 (and other branches of Weeks restaurants), were iconic to generations of Granite State ice cream lovers. Giving back to their place is also in the Weeks family DNA. “My biggest influence about giving was my father,” Jack Weeks said. The Weeks had always been generous and active members of

their community. When the dairy was sold in 1988, Jack and his wife, Pat, opened a donoradvised fund at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, kicking off decades of support to dozens of New Hampshire nonprofit organizations. Pat Weeks — who has worked as a dental hygienist in some of New Hampshire’s poorest school districts — wanted, in particular, to help children in need. “Some of these kids, there’s just nobody for them,” she said. And Jack adds: “Kids need more people to speak up for them in the state house.” Jack Weeks also served in the New Hampshire Legislature, on the Charitable Foundation’s and New Hampshire Public Radio’s boards of directors and was a founding member of the UNH Foundation. Like the generations before them, Jack and Pat Weeks have passed on their philanthropic values to their children. Their son, John Weeks III and his wife, Gail, recently opened their own donoradvised fund at the Foundation with a gift of stock. Gifts from their fund mean that stock has been transformed into good works in New Hampshire communities — from the preservation of natural

landscapes, to access to the arts and support of the local United Way. John Weeks III is managing director of Family Wealth & Business Transition Planning at Harvest Capital in Concord. He serves on the Foundation’s Manchester Region Advisory Board and has served on numerous nonprofit boards, including The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire. Gail Weeks is deeply involved in community and school endeavors — and was recently presented with an “Unsung Hero” award for doing the thousands of invaluable things that help make a community strong. John and Gail Weeks are passing on their own philanthropic values to sons Andrew, Matt and Tim. As a wealth manager, John Weeks understands “how philanthropy can be used to bring families together.” A donor-advised fund, to which the children may be named successor advisors, can be “a vehicle to prompt the conversation with kids about philanthropy.” It’s a conversation he had with his boys on Father’s Day. New Hampshire is this family’s place. For generations, they have shown it by giving.

A letter from Red River charitABLE FOUNDATION

F

or over 20 years, Red River has fostered an unwavering commitment to community service and a company-wide culture of giving back. From our inception, we have supported charitable programs and our employees have dedicated themselves to bettering the New Hampshire communities where they live and work. In 2008, we created the Red River Technology Foundation (RRTF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provided college scholarships and donated laptops and IT equipment to local high school students studying in science, technology, education and mathematics (STEM) fields. Knowing that too many students leave New Hampshire after high school, we launched local high school and college programs to foster STEM passion, educate the next generation of IT specialists – and shine a light on the numerous colleges and fulfilling career opportunities available to them right here in New Hampshire. There is simply no place better to call home. New Hampshire ranks among the best places to live and work in terms of health care, safety, income and livability. However, only half of the state’s college graduates remain here to build careers and families. Attracting and retaining top talent to stay, work and play in New Hampshire has been an integral part of our culture since Red River’s inception in Hanover, NH back in 1995. By providing internships, work study programs and educating students on

the vast opportunities in STEM-related fields, we are building a path for fulltime employment at Red River while simultaneously investing in the future of this incredible state. In 2013, RRTF expanded to support local veterans and veteran organizations. The Department of Veterans Affairs is one of Red River’s largest customers and we pride ourselves on being a veteran-friendly company, with over 11 percent of our employees being former members of the armed services. Homelessness among veterans is a serious concern and the primary reason we partnered with Friends of Veterans (FOV) – an organization that helps arrange housing for New Hampshire’s homeless veterans. Veteran homelessness has risen steadily across the nation since 2011 and is closely tied to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Red River is now working with FOV to match service dogs with Veterans suffering from PTSD across New Hampshire and Vermont. With homelessness, depression and suicide rates all on the rise among veterans, partnering with organizations that support and help veterans and their families avoid homelessness is vitally important to us. In 2015, RRTF officially became the Red River Charitable Foundation (RRCF) in order to reflect our evolved mission and dedication to a wider array of philanthropic projects. Today, the RRCF strives to make a difference in our community with students, veterans and many other organizations.

Here is a snapshot of RRCF’s influence on the community:

★ Awarded over

36 STEM scholarships to high school seniors ★ Enrolled over 42 students in our high school and college internship programs ★ Maintained over 2,000 hours per year in staff community service hours ★ Named Dell’s 2015 Philanthropic Partner of the Year ★ Hosted our 10th Annual Charity Golf Classic to benefit the RRCF Scholarship Program ★ Hosted our 2nd Annual Rock Your Camo 5k Road Race to support and honor various veteran organizations Following Red River’s own industry success, the Red River Charitable Foundation continues to grow in size and scope, and I’m excited to see what RRCF’s impact will be over the next 20 years. I’m enormously proud of the hard work, dedication and overwhelming enthusiasm our employees have displayed for the foundation. Through their tireless efforts and generosity, our charitable foundation fulfills our dual mandate of supporting high school students in their pursuit of higher learning and improving the quality of life for New Hampshire veterans. Regards,

Rick Bolduc CEO, Red River President, Red River Charitable Foundation

A letter from southern new hampshire services

L

ike many nonprofits we have just completed our 2015 annual report. It is a time to look back at the year and reflect on the achievements of our clients and our staff; a time to acknowledge goals met and those to come. For us, the five Community Action Agencies (CAAs) in New Hampshire and our nationwide network of more than 1,000 Community Action Agencies, it was a year to celebrate 50 years of service! What is Community Action you may ask? While we share much in common with other nonprofits, we are also very different. Some of the key differences include: our creation by the Federal Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, our level of federal funding and the associated federal requirements and compliance; our shared national mission, purpose and code of ethics; and our tripartite board structure that includes a minimum of one-third of our members to be those we serve, who must be selected through a democratic process, along with a third being elected officials and the remaining members from the private sector.

Gale Hennessy

Donnalee Lozeau

Executive Director 1967-2015

Executive Director 2016

All these elements are designed to promote the participation of the entire community, especially our low-income residents, in assessing local needs and attacking the causes and conditions of poverty. We are unique because Community Action Agencies reach out to low-income people in their communities and address their multiple needs through a comprehensive approach. We have had great success with this as demonstrated in our latest community needs assessment which generated almost 2,000 returned surveys! CAAs develop partnerships with other community organizations to ensure services are not duplicated. CAAs involve low-income clients in the agency operations. CAAs administer a full range of coordinated programs designed to have a measurable impact on poverty. We believe that everyone regardless of their income can succeed when provided with the opportunity. We are grateful to be able to serve our most vulnerable members of our community and state, advocating on their behalf and helping them help themselves and each other.

It is well to be prepared for life as it is, but it is better to be prepared to make life better than it is. — Sargent Shriver, Jr., First Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity

A letter from Concord hospital trust

“I save lives… and so does anyone who gives to support New Hampshire hospitals.” When people ask me what I do for a living, I respond, “I save lives.” Whether they express it or not, I know what they are thinking — “Aren’t you just a fundraiser?” Of course, I don’t save lives as our physicians and nurses do, or as our community’s paramedics, firefighters and police do. But, the funds that are given to Concord Hospital Trust directly support life-saving results and also life affirming work. Consider the LUCAS Initiative in 2011; providing automatic chest compression (CPR) technology to transporting ambulances throughout our service area was life-saving – just ask John Regan of Belmont. Reverend James Morel of Gilford will tell you that he is alive today because of the funds given to support therapeutic hypothermia at Concord Hospital. Certainly, the recent generosity to fund the Payson Center replacement linear accelerator (radiation therapy technology) will save hundreds, maybe thousands, of lives. And, the patient who needed the support of our emergency dental fund to treat an abscessed tooth in advance of cardiac surgery will acknowledge that without that fund, he might not be alive today. Beyond the live-saving impact that contributions to Concord Hospital Trust make possible are the life affirming impacts that we sometimes take for granted

simply because they seem less dramatic than life or death results. Consider the gasoline or grocery card that is provided to a cancer patient in need to increase life quality by supporting out-of-pocket expenses during treatment; Lakes Region resident Phil Dallon would tell you that receiving a seemingly small gift to help him get to and from treatment made a big difference as he battled cancer. The family of Judy Demers will reinforce that the contributions to develop the Hospital’s Delirium Prevention Program helped her regain normalcy after suffering delirium following a knee replacement. Take the time to speak with any Concord Hospital Family Health Center patient or a person who has been provided financial assistance and you will understand that the many gifts – both past and present – given for charitable care continue to have impact today. Contributions given to Concord Hospital Trust and other hospitals throughout New Hampshire have impact – impact on real people. There are thousands of stories and thousands of people whose lives have been made better by the gifts shared to support health and health care statewide. So, I save lives, and as a contributor to Concord Hospital Trust and other New Hampshire hospitals, so do you!

Pamela Puleo, FAHP Vice President, Community Affairs, Concord Hospital Executive Director, Concord Hospital Trust

American Heart Association Top Funding Sources:

2017 Goals:

On average, heart disease claims the lives of over 2,290 New Hampshire residents each year and stroke claims the lives of over 500 residents. But in many cases, heart disease and stroke are preventable. Our 2020 impact goal is to reduce deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20% and improve health of all Americans by 20%. We work to achieve this by funding innovative research, fighting for stronger public health policies and providing critical tools and information to save and improve lives.

To help build awareness and educate the public, as well as raise funds for heart disease and stroke research, the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association host many events through the year including: Manchester Go Red for Women Luncheon, September 30, 2016 Upper Valley Go Red for Women Luncheon, February 10, 2017 National Wear Red Day, February 3, 2017 (always first Friday in February) National Walking Day, April 5, 2017 (always first Wednesday in April) Cocktail for a Cause, May 5, 2017 Central NH Heart & Stroke Walk, June 3, 2017

Giving Opportunities:

When you donate to the American Heart Association, you are joining us in the fight against our nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers – heart disease and stroke.

Individuals can give by participating at our Heart Walks or attending one of our Go Red For Women Luncheons. Students can participate by signing up for their school’s Jump Rope or Hoops For Heart event. Companies can give by adding us to your workplace giving program or sponsoring an event.

Volunteer Opportunities:

The American Heart Association needs the time and talent of volunteers to help us create a healthier world, free of heart disease and stroke. We are always looking for leadership team members to help drive our events, Heart Walk Team Captains, Advocacy volunteers as well as individuals who might have specific skills and time to donate for graphic design, video production, event management and office work.

Our dream is to have the sustainability to grant the one, true, heartfelt wish of every eligible child in New Hampshire who is battling a life-threatening medical condition.

For our children, this Wish can be the turning point in their treatment and a life changing experience for them and their families.

Check www.nh.wish.org frequently for a list of events that you can attend to support Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire.

We invite you to share the power of a wish®, whether it’s a few hours a month or a week.

Through our Wish Ambassadors, we are able to spread awareness throughout the state about the importance of granting a child’s heartfelt wish. We also have volunteer wish granting, office help and external event volunteer opportunities. The first step in helping us, is to attend an upcoming Wish Tour.

ST. JOSEPH hospital 2017 Goals:

Top Funding Sources

Fundraising Events:

Year Established: 1908 Employees: 1,500 Annual Revenue: $194,716,000

According to the region’s most recent community health needs assessment (CHNA), access to care continues to be a top health concern. The Greater Nashua Public Health Service Area includes over 200,000 residents. More than 10 percent of these residents have significant barriers to accessing medical and dental services. This year St. Joseph Hospital, the city of Nashua and Rivier University are partnering to expand access to health care through the development of a new mobile health clinic. Due to tremendous wear and tear, the present vehicle is no longer serviceable and unable to meet the needs of the community. In order to continue this program, a new mobile health clinic is needed. St. Joseph Hospital hosts a variety of fundraising events each year. Kicking the year off in support of the St. Joseph Hospital Breast Care Center is the Pink Ride, an annual fundraising snowmobile ride to aid in the fight against breast cancer. Also in support of the Breast Care Center, Mom Prom helps to raise breast cancer awareness and funds. Donations from these two events have helped purchase state-of-the-art technology, such as digital breast tomosynthesis, to perform three-dimensional mammography for breast cancer screening and diagnosis. Lastly, the Care for a Cause Gala raises money for important hospital programs and services and community health improvement initiatives. This year, the gala is raising money for the new mobile health clinic. For more information about these events, visit www. stjosephhospital.com/events.

Giving Opportunities:

Your charitable gifts help us purchase state-of-the-art technology, improve our space and facilities, implement new programs and services and support our caring staff. Donations may be made securely online (www.stjosephhospital.com/Donate), by mail (checks can be made payable to St. Joseph Hospital and mailed to the Foundation Department at 172 Kinsley St., Nashua, NH 03060) or by phone with a credit/debit card at 603-595-3104. Additional ways to give include making a gift in honor or memory of a loved one or establishing a tribute fund or a legacy gift set up through your estate planning.

During the annual campaign, United Way partners with tens of thousands of donors, corporate and community foundations and employee giving campaigns in local and national companies to raise millions of dollars to address critical needs in our communities. One of the easiest ways to give is online.

Cheryl Correllus, Director 224 Bog Road, Concord, NH 603-753-4801

Everyonisesomeone’s child

For over thirty years, Eleanor Still ran the informal, one-woman charity out of her Bow, NH home, operating a food pantry and giving holiday gifts to local children and teenagers in need. Before her death in 2004, Eleanor arranged for supporters in the Concord Moose Lodge to carry on her work.

In 2006, FOFC needed a new home. Robert Finlay, a businessman and racecar driver, purchased our current home in Concord, NH. The charity has never changed its mission from Eleanor’s original vision. FOFC is not just a food pantry — it meets a vital and necessary need in the community.

GoodWill Industries of Northern New England 2017 Goals:

Success in the workplace can be interrupted by life circumstances that take precedence over work, leading to a cycle of chronic under- and unemployment. That’s where Goodwill comes in For more than 100 years, Goodwill has been focused on the role of work in society. Work – holding a steady job – has the power to bring dignity and stability to an individual’s life, their family and community. Our goal is to bring 10,000 households into stability by 2027. The cleaning, health care and retail elements of our enterprise – plus philanthropic investments – deliver mission results and fund our innovative workforce services.

Fundraising Events:

It all adds up. By shopping at our stores, you are supporting our primary revenue source and finding goods that have a lot of life left in them. It’s a sustainable approach. Then, you also have the opportunity to “Round Up” to the nearest dollar at the registers. Shoppers’ spare change is a significant support of our innovative workforce services and Veterans Fund.

Giving Opportunities:

Corporate and individual giving: Gifts to the Goodwill Fund help people be successful on the job while aligning with your business goals. Our team will work with you to maximize your brand impact. Coordinate a donation drive – By hosting a donation drive, you can create impact toward your own sustainability goals. Just as there are things you recycle, there are things you donate. Think of a neighborhood, school, church, civic group or company-wide project. Items that are most useful include clothing, home goods, linens, books and computers. Our community relations team will work with you to make it easy.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Every day volunteers contribute to the success of people served by Goodwill. While there are a variety of one-day, team building projects available throughout the year, mentoring young people is an ongoing commitment that is life changing for the volunteer and the young person.

With training available for all specialized volunteer roles, Goodwill’s volunteer program manager will work with you to create a memorable and rewarding experience.

The plus company 2017 Goals:

The PLUS Company will continue to grow the quantity and quality of employment opportunities available to the individuals we serve. Working is such an important aspect to personal growth, purpose and independence. Employers often remark that employees with disabilities produce quality work, improve the culture of the workplace and are highly motivated and dependable. We are looking for more businesses to partner with us to provide mentoring and internship sites, as well as learning about the many benefits to hiring our trained and supported clients.

Fundraising Events:

Two events are held annually to raise funds for adult education classes: a silent auction and an annual Wild Irish Breakfast. Reserving the Saturday evening before Thanksgiving has become a tradition for attendees to the Silent Auction and Dinner Dance. This semi-formal event always includes a live band or DJ, both live and silent auction, a cocktail hour with complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres as well as a full course dinner. It is a fun-filled event which always includes some great auction items. The other highly anticipated community event is the PLUS Company Wild Irish Breakfast. This March 17th we will be celebrating our 26th year of bringing local, regional and national political figures together for a morning full of wit and banter. Past speakers have included presidential candidates, U.S. senators, governors and representatives for a variety of state and local offices.

Giving Opportunities:

While much of the money used to operate our day-to-day programs comes from government funding, all of the monies necessary to operate value-added supports and services are from private and corporate donations. Value-added supports and services include quality of life enhancements such as the opportunity to bring in live music weekly and the ability to offer over 65 adult education classes which improve the quality of life, skills and social opportunities of almost every individual served. PLUS considers these types of opportunities to be critical to living full and meaningful lives.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers are the heart of our agency and have been a huge part of our success. We are committed to engaging volunteers in meaningful opportunities that encourage innovative ideas, unique perspectives and specialized expertise. Volunteers can tutor, teach a class, help with a fundraising project, write a grant, get involved in our Special Olympics program or become a companion. The opportunities are limitless!

Nonprofits enrich our quality of life. The qualities people treasure in New Hampshire are due in large part to the work of nonprofits. When you walk in a nature sanctuary, shop in a revitalized downtown, participate in a community theater production, or attend a religious service, you have a nonprofit to thank. Everyday, nonprofits partner with business and government and bring people together to share the beauty of the arts, take advantage of our pristine environment and, together, solve community issues.
