Welcome to NH Business Review’s third annual Charitable Giving Guide, featuring the stories of some of the Granite State’s most essential nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits are a vital part of our local economy — in fact, they are significant employers throughout the state. But above all, the crucial support and services they offer are essential for the well-being of all of us in New Hampshire. In short, they make the Granite State a better place to live and work. The goal of the Charitable Giving Guide is a vehicle for New Hampshire nonprofits to get their message out to more residents and businesses in the Granite State. The Giving Guide provides the opportunity for nonprofits to inform our readers about their mission, their operations and the communities they serve. But another goal of this publication is to 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. We hope the mission of these organizations will lead you and your company to contribute in some way to make a difference.

A letter from new hampshire charitable foundation


ew Hampshire is a great place to live, work and play. But we are also facing some serious challenges. A crisis of substance misuse. A startling gap in access to opportunity depending on what town, or what neighborhood, you are born into. A shrinking workforce. Threats to our precious natural resources. New Hampshire’s nonprofit sector is working mightily on solutions to all of those things. Which is why I remain optimistic that, despite our challenges, New Hampshire will remain a great place to make our homes and raise our families and enjoy our communities. I am optimistic because of a tradition of generosity established by the people who came before, generosity which helped to build so much of what makes New Hampshire great. And I am optimistic because, in New Hampshire, we understand that when we give, we ALL do better. A gift that helps a kid facing serious adversity means that kid gets to grow up to reach his full potential — which means he has the chance to become that police officer, that nurse, that engineer who helps sustain our communities tomorrow. A gift that helps protect our environment means we all have better places to live, work and play. When we give to help our elders live with dignity, we show that we are a community that values the contributions of those who worked so hard to build what we now enjoy. New Hampshire has a proud tradition of people who understood all of that. People who worked hard and knew that who you were, the example you set, depended not just on doing well, but on doing good. It depended on giving with your resources, and giving with your creativity and time and talent. How we give sets that example, and is a demonstration of our aspirations for this place and these communities we love. So what matters most to you? Is it civic education? Elder care? Mentoring kids? Feeding the hungry? Addiction treatment and recovery? Land conservation? The arts? I promise you, there is a New Hampshire nonprofit working on it — and one that could really use your help. Look through this guide, look around the community that is New Hampshire. Pick your strategy and pick your spot. A stronger New Hampshire depends on a thriving nonprofit sector. And a thriving nonprofit sector depends on you. By doing good — by giving, volunteering, engaging — you help ensure that all of us do well.

A letter from Red River charitABLE FOUNDATION


t Red River, service is in our DNA. We know how important it is to give back to the community and take care of the people around us. That’s why the Red River Charitable Foundation (RRCF) has a two-part mission: we encourage local students to continue their education in the fields of science and technology, and we support veterans as they transition into civilian life. From science nights to our annual community service project to our support of Operation Hat Trick, Red River strives to build stronger, happier and healthier communities. It’s been a busy year for the company. Since last October, we have had significant organic growth and we acquired two great companies: Accunet Solutions, an established systems integration and IT consulting service provider headquartered in Boston, MA, and Natoma Technologies, a Sacramento-based application and software development company. Throughout these changes, we’ve kept our commitment to positively transforming the communities we serve. Philanthropy is one of our company’s core values — not because it sounds good on a website, but because it drives the work that we do. We are a company of passionate, engaged and giving people, and with new Red River employees joining our team, we’re ready to help more students and veterans than ever before.


NH Business Review

We started our company in New Hampshire and we still are proud to serve this community in particular. New Hampshire ranks among the best places to live and work, but only half of the state’s college graduates remain here to build careers and families. We want to find ways to keep that talent in the state, while opening eyes to new opportunities in the technology field. Our ThinkSmart program incorporates real-world learning in a professional work environment. Earlier this summer, six students participated in our eight-week ThinkSmart program and earned high school credit while learning key technology skills, including IT break/fix, application and system monitoring, layer one infrastructure and introduction to cloud technologies. We are proud of our strong partnership with the University of New Hampshire. We consistently participate in capstone projects with the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, during which seniors are asked to review competitors and key business verticals along with customer, market and partner needs. We also host workshops at UNH during Girls Technology Day, which provides young women in New Hampshire with a greater depth of knowledge regarding career and post-secondary options in technology fields. It has been rewarding to support these programs for many years and it is a great outlet for our employees to become involved and share their knowledge and experience.

〉 Charitable Giving Guide 2018

The RRCF Scholarship Program is one of the highlights of our philanthropic efforts. Each year, RRCF selects six talented high school students pursuing degrees in the technology field to receive a $4,000 scholarship. Since 2008, RRCF has awarded scholarships to 42 area high school seniors. The scholarship program is funded in large part by the generosity of this community during our Annual Golf Classic at The Quechee Club in Vermont. These are just a few of our ongoing efforts to serve the community that has served Red River so well. I could go on to talk about our work with veterans, from our Rock the Camo 5K to sending disabled veterans to the Winter Sports Clinic in Snowmass, to our Service Dog Program for veterans suffering with PTSD, to our companywide community service project in a veteran community. We’re a technology transformation company, and that is no more apparent than in the way we seek a positive impact through our philanthropy and giving. And our employees have embraced this philanthropic approach by contributing more than 1500 volunteer hours in 2016. With our corporate growth and our expanding population of employees, I am so excited for the results of our community focused philanthropic impact in 2017! Regards, Dan McGee

COO, Red River RRCF Board Member



ew Hampshire’s not-for-profits, large and small, have many of the issues faced by for-profit enterprises, and some which are unique. Sheehan Phinney is proud to have represented a large number of our state’s charities and other not-for-profits throughout our 75-year history, as they have contributed to making New Hampshire a better place to live. Our attorneys help form and maintain not-for-profit corporations and assure they are in compliance with tax and regulatory requirements, on the state and federal level. We assist in qualifying them under the various sections of IRC Section 501 (c). We help them deal with hearings if issues arise. New Hampshire has a unique real estate tax exemption law, with which we deal regularly on behalf of our educational, religious and charitable clients, to assure they qualify for and maintain the exemptions to which they are entitled by law. Most importantly, we assist in the day-to-day operational issues which arise, involving grants, administrative rules and regulations, program-specific requirements, employment issues, and insurance and litigation matters so clients can focus on the mission for which they exist. Our firm justifiably is proud of the work our attorneys and staff perform as board members, officers and volunteers for many not-forprofits, helping them improve life in our state. Whether it is large healthcare organizations, retirement communities, multi-program charities, universities, colleges and schools, camps, nursing homes, arts organizations or other civic organizations, Sheehan Phinney has developed the expertise to help as they are make New Hampshire such a great state in which to live, work, and raise our families.

New Hampshire Charitable Foundation

How to create a culture of giving in your business Your company can do good AND do well — while supporting critical services, strengthening communities and building team camaraderie By Richard Peck, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation


ew Hampshire companies have always been a bedrock of support for the state’s crucial nonprofit sector. New Hampshire businesses help feed the hungry, bring arts to our communities, support mentoring for youth, help kids afford college, support visiting nurses who care for the frail — and so much more. And not only does corporate philanthropy do an amazing amount of good in our communities, studies also show that


it makes employees happier, more productive and more fulfilled — and more likely to stick around. Increasingly, employees (especially those of younger generations) are seeking out companies that incorporate philanthropy and community engagement into their culture, and gravitating to companies that provide benefits like volunteer time and matches for charitable giving. People want to know that they, and the companies they work for, are doing good while doing well.

Want to create a culture of giving in your company? Here are some ideas:

Offer paid volunteer time. Most people want to volunteer, and volunteering connects them more deeply with their communities. But many people — juggling demands of career, home and family — simply do not have time. Give them, and New Hampshire communities, the gift of that time. Some companies offer their employees one day a year of paid volunteer time, others more. Some companies organize structured volunteer opportunities (like teams of people serving meals together at a soup kitchen or helping build a community playground). Paid volunteer time encourages employees to roll up their sleeves and give back to their communities — and volunteering together builds relationships and camaraderie at work.

Provide matching gifts to nonprofits. Any amount of a company match encourages employee giving. Some companies match a percentage, some put a cap on total dollar amount per employee, but all boost generosity and amplify your employees’ giving power! If you do this around the holidays, you might be surprised by how many employees make a gift to a nonprofit their holiday gift to a family member!

Open a scholarship fund for kids in your community. Countless New Hampshire companies have scholarship funds that help kids in their communities afford college. Some are managed by the companies themselves. Others — from Dunkin’ Donuts to

St. Mary’s Bank to Portsmouth Regional Hospital and more — are administered through the Charitable Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of New Hampshire individuals, families and businesses, the Foundation’s student aid program is the largest source of publicly available scholarships in the state.

Start a United Way campaign. The Granite United Way, United Way of Greater Nashua and United Way of the Greater Seacoast provide all the tools you need to run an employee campaign in your company. This payroll-deduction plan allows employees to choose where their donations go, and is a time-tested way of incorporating philanthropy into the workplace. United Ways are a critical source of support for New Hampshire nonprofits, distributing $14 million each year to nonprofits around the state. Many businesses also participate in the United Way Day of Caring, which mobilizes teams of volunteers to do projects for nonprofits — from painting and landscaping to sorting food for food pantries.

Explore opportunities for partnerships with local nonprofits. Maybe your IT department could offer tech expertise to a small nonprofit, or you could organize a company food drive for your local food pantry. One New Hampshire company, CCA Global Partners, has created a partnership with Big Brothers/ Big Sisters of New Hampshire. “Little” brothers and sisters come to the Manchester headquarters directly from

school every other Monday to spend time with their “bigs” right there at the office, eat a nutritious meal and not only benefit from time spent with caring adults, but get to see what is possible in the world of work. Opportunities for creative partnerships abound!

Create a philanthropic fund for community nonprofits and involve employees in giving decisions. As many business owners are aware, requests for donations can seem constant – and can be hard to keep organized. Increasingly, companies use donoradvised funds to organize their giving and recommend grants to community nonprofits. Companies create the funds, and then employee committees — from all levels of the organization — get together to discuss requests from nonprofits and recommend grants. Some companies match employee contributions into the company’s giving fund, and invite nonprofits in to tell employees about their work, further connecting the team with the nonprofits that provide critical services and improve the quality of life in our communities.

Lead by example. Like every other part of a company’s culture, great leadership in the area of giving, volunteering and connecting with community have a profound effect on your team — no matter what your business does, or if you have five employees or 500. Examples of generosity inspire.

Richard Peck is vice-president for development and philanthropy services at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. The Foundation works with many generous New Hampshire businesses, families and individuals to amplify the power of their giving.

Giving together strengthens communities and boosts staff engagement

oe Keefe is up under the eaves in his Portsmouth office, talking urgently about the things he cares about — sustainable investing, gender equality, climate change, the Boston Red Sox. Keefe is president and CEO of Pax World Management, a leader in the field of sustainable investing. He is also co-chair of the Leadership Group for Women’s Empowerment Principles, a project of the United Nations Global Compact and UN Women, and member of the board of the advocacy organization Women Thrive Worldwide. He has written extensively on sustainable investing and gender equity. Ethisphere Magazine has named him one of the “100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics” three times. In 2015, the Financial Times named him one of the world’s top feminist men. “Mr. Keefe is an outspoken critic of gender inequality,” the Times wrote, “describing it as ‘the greatest economic issue of our time, because there is so much value locked up inside these outdated, dim-witted patriarchal systems we allow to continue.’” Keefe cares about those issues globally, and locally. Pax does its corporate giving through

the Pax World Management Charitable Fund at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Before Pax opened the donor-advised fund in 2014, Keefe and his assistant had been fielding the calls requesting charitable donations themselves, sorting them and spending time to research, prioritize and make decisions. “I have a day job,” he laughs. And then, more seriously: “I was doing our charitable work, but…I just don’t have the time. I’m not in a position to do all the due diligence.” He wanted his firm’s philanthropy done as thoughtfully as possible, and to maximum effect. (Pax World also manages the Foundation’s socially-screened investment fund.) “Philanthropic money is money that needs to be wisely invested,” Keefe said. “This is absolutely the best way for us to do our philanthropy, because the Charitable Foundation brings so many resources to the table in terms of knowledge and due diligence and strategic ideas such that our philanthropic giving is much better. And I get to stay involved, which I like. For a firm our size, it’s just a great way to do our giving.” An employee committee, which is open to anyone in the company and is comprised of everyone from administrative assistants to senior

management, advises the fund and makes recommendations for grants. The Foundation’s Portsmouth-based team helps sort through requests, brings funding opportunities to the table and works with the Pax committee to maximize its charitable impact. Keefe said that, now, the company’s philanthropy feels aligned with a larger set of strategic priorities important to the state — making the company feel like it is “part of New Hampshire’s ‘social capital.’” Grants from the Pax Fund (in New Hampshire and well beyond) have helped provide opportunities to young girls and youth, boosted public radio and television, funded environmental stewardship efforts, helped house the homeless and feed the hungry and battle poverty and oppression. “There’s so much need out there and yet we have a finite amount of money,” Keefe said. “We want to have as much impact with that money as we can.” Pax matches employee contributions to the fund (up to $250 for each of its 50-plus employees), and gives them four days of paid time each year to volunteer. “You want happy, engaged employees,” Keefe said. Part of that happiness and engagement is “knowing we make a positive impact on the community.”

Providing Safe, Affordable Housing with Fellowship Housing Opportunities, Inc Support to Members of Our Community is a 501:C(3) organization based in Concord, NH since 1966 that offers safe and affordable housing whotoLive with Mental with support members of our communityIllness who live with mental illness. Top Funding Sources: Our funding sources are events, business and individual donations.

2018 Goals:

Year Established: 1966 Employees: 16 Annual Revenue: $1.206 million

One year ago, the founding executive director retired from her position after 32 years. In addition, the rest of the four-member management team changed over as well. Therefore, the last year has been a year of destabilizing ourselves and finding a new foundation. However, we are now ready to look to new growth and possibilities! Our biggest goal is to establish and provide more affordable housing options for the disabled and chronically mentally ill among our community, in the next year and two. It has been about 10 years since we grew our housing stock for our tenants and we are actively seeking options.

Mission Statement:

Fundraising Events:

Fellowship Housing Opportunities provides decent, safe and affordable housing with support to members of our community who live with mental illness.

Service Locations:

Fellowship Housing Opportunities serves over 60 people currently. Over the last 30+ years, we have served 340 of our neighbors and citizens living with mental illness. We offer one 24-hour staffed facility for 12 clients in downtown Concord and 6 multi-unit apartment buildings throughout Concord where 50 people live independently with some community support from Fellowship Housing and through our local Community Mental Health Center.


Nancy A. Egner, LICSW, MPA Executive Director 36 Pleasant Street Concord, NH 603-225-1767 www.fellowshiphousing.org

Each time we look to increase our housing stock and options, we seek a tremendous amount of help from funders including the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority and other governmental organizations, but also through grants and private donations. We look to the next two years to be very active and as such we will be undertaking a major fundraising drive and capital needs campaign to support our efforts to provide safe and affordable housing for the disabled and mentally ill in our community. Look to our website for updates.

Giving Opportunities: We always seek support to maintain and improve the lives of the 60 people currently renting in our buildings. These may include new furniture, building improvements, etc. With looking to acquire more apartments and buildings, we seek donations to assist us in buying and renovating properties. The renovations in particular are needed to help meet the needs of our tenants. For example, a number of current tenants who have lived with us for 20 years or more are getting older and find it increasingly difficult to walk up stairs to their homes. Therefore, in a future building, we seek to provide single-story housing, ramps or an elevator. We will need your support to do this! Online Donation — Through our website at fellowshiphousing.org. Direct Mail – Send donations to Fellowship Housing Opportunities, 36 Pleasant Street, Concord, NH 03301

Volunteer Opportunities: We owe much of our success to our terrific staff, and to those who offer their services to our organization and assist our tenants in countless ways. These include providing Christmas baskets and gifts to some of our tenants over the holidays, assisting us in providing food and essentials, and activities and activity money for our tenants in our staffed residence. We are also seeking volunteers to be on our board of trustees to assist us in the oversight and operations of our organization. If you are interested, please contact our executive director, Nancy Egner.

50 Bridge Street Manchester, NH 03101 603-223-0603 www.goodwillnne.org

2018 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.You also have the opportunity to “Round Up” to the nearest dollar at the registers — shoppers’ spare change is a significant support of Goodwill-designed services and its 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 who participate in Goodwill services. While there are a variety of one-day, team building projects available throughout the year, mentoring adults re-entering the workforce is an ongoing commitment that is life changing for the volunteer and the person who is making life changes. With training available for all specialized volunteer roles, Goodwill’s volunteer program manager will work with you to create a memorable and rewarding experience. Contact Barbara Sawyer at barbara.sawyer@goodwillnne.org to talk about specific opportunities.

Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services (HCS) is entering its 111th year as the local home health organization that provides comfort, care, and support to the people of southwestern New Hampshire. Through a wide array of services — including home care, hospice and palliative care, and community programs — HCS cares for our friends and neighbors of all ages and at all stages of life. As the home care provider of choice for this region, we are committed to meeting the home health needs of our communities using the best standards and latest technologies, while remaining nimble in the ever-changing healthcare and social services landscape. It continues to be our privilege and honor to care for the people in our service area.

Fundraising Events:

Each year, HCS hosts several events and initiatives to help raise awareness for and support of the programs so many rely on in this corner of the state. The Poinsettia Sale and Butterfly Release events which benefit hospice at HCS, and March for Meals — the harbinger of spring that supports our Meals on Wheels program — are our annual fundraisers. Sponsoring attending and sharing our events with your friends and family are a wonderful way to show your community spirit; your support will be felt by those we care for! We invite you to find the most updated and comprehensive information about our public events, programs, and community wellness offerings on our website at HCSservices.org and follow us on Facebook!

Gifts to support our caring work can be designated by the donor to help a particular program or a certain town/area that falls within our service area. Gifts are gratefully accepted by mail and online at HCSservices.org.


Visit with hospice patients and their families at home, help with the Music & Memory project, share a skill with the Castle Center Life Enrichment Program, deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors, or use your green thumb to beautify our hospice remembrance garden in Butterfly Park; your kind efforts will help bring comfort to those who are going through a very difficult time.
