Welcome to NH Business Review’s fourth annual Charitable Giving Guide, featuring articles and information about some of the Granite State’s most essential nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits are a vital part of our local economy, and 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. In short, they make the Granite State a better place to live and work. The goal of the Charitable Giving Guide is to provide a snapshot of the crucial, tireless work done by New Hampshire’s nonprofit sector and to be a vehicle for them to get their message out to more residents and businesses in the Granite State. The Giving Guide is an 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’ve included specific information about these nonprofits, along with ways to get more involved in corporate giving and ideas on how to get more engagement from your staff and peers. And, while you may be familiar with many of the organizations contained in these pages, you may just discover one that’s new to you and learn about the important work it does. We hope the mission of these organizations will lead you and your company to contribute in some way to make a difference.

That list represents just a tiny fraction of the ways in which thousands of nonprofit staff and volunteers serve our communities, our neighbors and our families on every ordinary day. Of course, all of that is far from ordinary — it is astonishing and aweinspiring and transformational. It is, in a word, extraordinary. New Hampshire’s nonprofits are on a mission — to serve veterans and their families, to empower young leaders, to defend civil rights, to boost our economy, to conserve historic and natural treasures, to feed and care and shelter, to inspire and educate and challenge. That’s what New Hampshire needs, and that’s what nonprofits deliver. Every day. Every night. In every town and every city. As extraordinary as that is, the people of the nonprofit sector bring something else that is equally profound: every day, against overwhelming odds, these folks not only do the critical work — but also hold fast to the values that

make American communities great. Things like hope, integrity, justice, inclusion, truth-telling, love. Maybe that’s why the public’s trust in the nonprofit sector remains high when faith in other institutions is falling. Every day, I talk to nonprofit leaders and staff who show those values and that spirit even while struggling with very real challenges: growing demand for services, financial uncertainty, the difficulty of paying competitive salaries — and a concern that, despite their best efforts, too many of their clients are still falling behind due to larger social and economic inequities. Nonprofits need and deserve stronger and deeper support, perhaps now more than ever. “Nonprofits,” a friend and colleague wrote to me recently, “provide spirit, healing, vocation, human connection, vision and courage — basically the color and richness for people and our planet.” I have worked in New Hampshire’s nonprofit sector for 35 years, and I have never been more proud or inspired to be part of this community than I am right now — when our nation and our world most need the qualities that nonprofits bring.

t Dartmouth-Hitchcock, giving takes many forms. At all of our Dartmouth-Hitchcock locations and our Dartmouth-Hitchcock health system member organizations, our employees and volunteers give of themselves every day to care for the people of New Hampshire and Vermont. As the only academic health system in New Hampshire, we also have a responsibility to advance healthcare through breakthrough discovery and research, serving as a leader of high-quality care for our patients at all our clinical sites across the region. Our commitment to the communities we serve is a part of our history and is embedded in who we are today. We work closely with community partners to understand the health needs in our service areas and invest in programs and partnerships to improve the health of the populations we serve. Our commitment also extends to those who are most in need who may not have the financial means to pay for treatments but require the highest quality of care only available through Dartmouth-Hitchcock or a member organization. Our communities reciprocate through their generous philanthropy. Their contributions have changed the landscape of our health system, serving as an endorsement of our innovative work and helping us to ensure compassionate care is always at the fore-front of all we do for the people of our region. For this generosity, we are truly grateful.

he Sheehan Phinney Bass & Green Estate Planning and Probate team advises not-for-profits, large and small, in their development office needs. We understand how critical on-going, creative fundraising is for organizations to thrive and meet their mission to do good. Our work with large not for profit hospitals, universities and institutions has provided us with the knowledge enabling us to work with small not-forprofits as well. We can appreciate that small organizations do not have the development office tools, staff, in-house counsel or financial resources larger 501(c)(3) entities have, but they have the same needs, or even greater. Let Sheehan Phinney fill that gap enabling donors to be even more charitable to you. Donors are sophisticated and your organization’s development office should be, too.

ancy and Paul Amato are New Englanders: They show up for their community and do the work that needs to be done. Nancy has been town and school district moderator; Paul a longtime planning board member and former school board member. Nancy has served on the town select board and budget committee, has volunteered at the library and led Girl Scout troops. Both are longtime board members of the local Boys & Girls Club. Before running a successful candle-making company, Paul was a volunteer fireman and EMT, and at various times cut wood and plowed snow to make money (“like everyone else in New Hampshire”). When the Amatos sold the business, they found themselves in the position of being able to give resources to their community that included more than their time. They decided on a donor-advised fund as a practical way to do their giving. Before they established the fund, Paul said, their giving was less focused — “20 dollars here and 100 dollars there.” They wanted their giving to be more strategic, to have more of a lasting effect. New Hampshire Charitable Foundation staff has worked with the Amatos and their financial advisor to tailor a giving strategy that is right for them. The Amatos’ candle company was always a family enterprise: Their daughters did everything from setting wicks to working the heat-sealing machine. So Paul and Nancy wanted them to have a hand in giving decisions as well. “They worked hard to make the company a success — they’ve been working hard forever,” Nancy said. And, Paul said, “We realized that, at some point in time, our daughters would need to take the fund over.” Foundation staff met with the extended family, helping the younger generation focus giving priorities, learn how to select nonprofits to support and arrange site visits. The process “brought them into an interest in making grants that they didn’t even know they had,” Paul said. “I don’t think it’s a one-shot deal. It’s a stepping stone, and we’ll continue to work with the Foundation.” The Amatos give their daughters authority to each recommend a set dollar amount of grants from the fund each year — and ask them to work together to decide on an additional

grant as a group. Nancy and Paul do all of their giving locally, most of it in Milford and surrounding communities. “We wanted to support the community that is good to us” — the place where Nancy grew up, where their kids were educated and where their company’s workforce came from. One way they support their community is by supporting programs that help their community’s kids thrive and grow into the adults who will sustain their communities tomorrow. They are longtime supporters of the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley. It was a dreary day in March of 2004 when Nancy drove Paul to the site of a local theater where she had ushered as a teenager and that had since closed up shop. She told her husband they needed to get out and take a walk. He was perplexed. “We’re going to buy the building and give it to the Boys & Girls Club,” she explained. They did. And with can-do adaptability, this club made the existing theater — renovated with the Amatos’ help and named for them — the centerpiece of its programming. It is one of the only Boys & Girls Clubs in the country with a primary focus on performing arts. The effect of that generosity has a way of making itself apparent: one young man who grew up at the club and learned to do lighting for the theater now owns a company that does just that. Last summer, a young woman who had been a “club kid” came rushing up to the Amatos at the Foundation’s annual meeting. She works now at a nonprofit focused on prevention of substance use disorders. “If you hadn’t done what you did,” to support the Boys & Girls Club, she told them, “I wouldn’t be doing what I do now!” Nancy and Paul like the idea that, through endowed philanthropy at their community foundation, they can give now and also have their fund support their community forever. “Part of that whole ‘forever,’” Paul said, “is that you’ve got to start training the next generation.” They are looking forward to finding ways to involve their grandchildren, to pass on the idea that you take the resources you have — your time, your expertise and goodwill, your money — and do the work your community needs done. “That’s what you do,” Paul said. “You give back.” NH BUSINESS REVIEW

A GIVING FAMILY: Nancy and Paul Amato use a donor-advised fund to support their community and pass on a tradition of giving to the next generation

Why a charitable giving mission statement will add joy to your giving — and maximize impact BY LAURA RAUSCHER, director of philanthropy, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation


f you had $10 million, what would you change tomorrow? The answer to that question will hold powerful — and very individualized — truths for every person, family or group that answers it. And the answer might just be the perfect jumping-off point for creating a tool that will make your giving more effective and rewarding, no matter how much you have to give. At the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, we are honored to work with many generous New Hampshire people, families and businesses to help them plan and maximize the power of their giving. We often work with people through a series of questions and exercises — including a discussion prompted by the hypothetical question above — designed to help them articulate their own philanthropic values and mission statements for their giving. Amazing things happen when multiple generations collaborate on that process. Ultimately, the process makes giving more strategic, effective and rewarding. There is acute need across almost any issue area you can name — healthcare, education, environmental protection, social justice. The amount any of us has to give cannot do everything. But it can do some things. And a clearly articulated mission statement can help you make the maximum

impact possible with whatever amount you have to give. A family’s charitable mission statement might look like this: Our family wants to help protect the environment, create racial justice and make sure that elders have access to meals-on-wheels. So we volunteer, give to and promote organizations that work on all of those issues, through both direct service and advocacy to affect public policy. A company’s might look like this: We feel deep gratitude and responsibility for the communities in which our employees and customers live and work. We have decided to invest in education, in arts organizations that make our communities more vibrant and in the improvement of public spaces. Therefore, we have created a scholarship for the children of our employees, and we give to arts organizations (with particular emphasis on those that offer programs for children), and give to and organize a company volunteer day for projects that create and improve on shared public spaces. Always remember: your charitable giving mission statement is a living, breathing document. Your priorities may shift — according to community need, family situation, current events. Revisit your statement every so often to make sure it still fits, and is still helping you make the difference you want to make — with whatever amount you have to give.

Your charitable giving mission statement will help you: Clarify your purpose.

where to make a difference with your

A clearly-stated charitable mission statement will help you stay focused on the areas where you have decided to make a difference — and, ultimately, help you to make an even bigger difference.

Strengthen family bonds and charitable values and traditions. Collaborating on your family or business charitable mission statement will help get everyone involved in the discussion and on the same page. This kind of collaborative and purposeful giving can help pass on a family’s philanthropic values to younger generations.

Prioritize. The act of discussing and formulating your statement will help you identify and solidify your own priorities for

charitable resources and volunteer time. Decision-making about giving becomes much simpler when you keep your priorities in mind.

Connect. When you have identified priority areas for your giving, it becomes easier to identify and connect with the nonprofits doing great work on those issues in your community. Connecting with nonprofits through volunteer work (and opportunities abound, from board

service to delivering meals to helping steward environmental resources) means developing new friendships, understanding community needs, creating deeper community connections and building a greater sense of purpose for your giving.

Reduce stress, increase joy. When faced with competing requests from countless deserving organizations and causes, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed (and even guilty) about giving — and to spread your resources so thin that it becomes hard to understand the impact they have. Your

mission statement will help you to gently turn down the requests that do not align with your priorities while embracing and giving generously to those that do — knowing you are making the biggest possible difference.

Make an even bigger difference. Picking a few areas in which to concentrate your giving and volunteering ensures that you will make the most difference you can for the issues and

organizations that matter most to you.

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation helps generous individuals, families and businesses maximize the power of their giving, connects donors with high-impact nonprofits and programs, and leads and invests on important initiatives for the state.

What’s your charitable mission?



s a local not-for-profit, Harvard Pilgrim’s heart and soul are exemplified by the passion and actions of the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation. For nearly 40 years the Foundation has provided the tools, training, volunteers and leadership to help build healthy communities across the region. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $145 million to support not-for-profit organizations in helping to increase access to fresh, healthy food, and making healthcare more equitable. Driven by the mission of the Foundation and the passion of our employees, Harvard Pilgrim has a long tradition of supporting organizations and causes in the cities, towns and neighborhoods it serves. At Harvard Pilgrim, we are very focused on supporting our employees as they invest their time and talents across the region. In 2017, through our Mini-Grant program, the Foundation distributed $593,000 in employee-directed Mini-Grants to more than 900 not-for-profit organizations throughout the region. In 2017, Harvard Pilgrim employees worked more than 3,650 volunteer hours to serve nonprofit causes. Locally, we have partnered with City Year New Hampshire, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Great NH Restaurants and the Fisher Cats for annual community service days, most recently at the Rooting for Families Community Garden Collaborative at Manchester Community College in Manchester. Volunteers prepared the garden to grow more fresh produce for New Hampshire families. Earlier this year, in partnership with North Country Healthcare, we jointly provided a $60,000 grant to the New Hampshire Food Bank to ensure that all North Country residents have access to fresh, nutritious and affordable food. We discovered while there is growing demand for more fresh food at the New Hampshire Food Bank’s partner agencies statewide, and particularly in the North Country, agencies often lack the capacity to meet this need. This grant will fund, among other things, the purchase of commercial refrigerators for four North Country food pantries, enabling them to double or triple the amount of fresh produce they offer. Eating nutritious food, including more fresh fruits and vegetables, is the first step toward improving one’s health and we are proud to bring more good food to communities who need it. Given the severity of the drug crisis in New Hampshire, we recently announced the launch of our own Opioid Misuse Prevention, Recovery and Treatment Grants program, as well as a partnership with New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to help fund activities dedicated to combating substance misuse for a combined commitment of $100,000. We felt it was important to step up and support those organizations helping to prevent and treat individuals and their families affected by opioid misuse in the state. Addiction is a disease, and with New Hampshire leading the nation in overdose deaths per capita for fentanyl, we hope this grants program will help organizations providing health, hope and support for freedom from addiction. I am very proud of our Foundation’s commitment to good health through philanthropy and giving, and Harvard Pilgrim’s efforts to create healthier New Hampshire communities for all.

Our goal is to go deeper into our work — to remember our beginnings and to build upon our roots of unique programming designed to meet the needs of every student that attends the Monarch School of New England.

Top Funding Sources

Contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations are vital to helping bridge the gap between the cost to provide high-tech medical care and the funding received from Medicaid and school districts. The current rate paid by Medicaid has not changed since 2009 despite higher costs associated with wages, equipment and utilities. Educational and therapy support for children (age 3-21) is supported by each child’s sending school district. YEAR ESTABLISHED: 1947 EMPLOYEES: 72 full-time, 22 part-time ANNUAL REVENUE: $5,500,000

We provide a nurturing, home-like setting, state-of-the-art medical supports including telemedicine appointments with DHMC and a wonderful adaptive playground. In the coming year, we anticipate continued demand for our advanced respiratory therapy expertise, particularly in the area of ventilator weaning. We will also continue to invest resources and energy to expand capacity across the healthcare sector to address common concerns related to workforce development.

Fundraising Events:

Several events are held throughout the year including the Autex Mazda Car Show in August, Walk & Roll and Monadnock Region Battle of the Badges Hockey Exhibition in October and Tree Lighting in December.

Giving Opportunities:

Contributions support the operations of the organization and fund the gap that exists between the cost to provide specialized medical care and the funding we receive from Medicaid and School Districts. Funding also supports special medical equipment and educational and therapeutic technology not funded through any traditional source. Interested individuals may contribute to Cedarcrest Center securely on our website or via mail. Cedarcrest Center’s 501 (C) (3) number is 02-0441832 and we welcome contributions from donor advised funds or through appreciated securities.

Volunteers play important roles at Cedarcrest. The children benefit greatly from having someone read to them, rock and soothe them or take a walk with them around our gardens. We have volunteer opportunities for short-term or long-term commitments and regular/irregular scheduling. Groups often assist with activities such as preparing for our annual prom or special events.

Giving Opportunities:


Service Locations:

The Granite State Children’s Alliance (GSCA) is committed to supporting Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) in New Hampshire. In 2017, we completed a year-long strategic planning initiative that engaged 55 key stakeholders from across the state committed to improving the Child Advocacy Center experience. The results of the five-year plan, “Runway to 2021,” will positively affect the direction of our organization, our child protection system in New Hampshire and our CAC movement. The full report detailing the process and our goals is available on our website. Another continued goal for 2019 is to expand KNOW & TELL, our public responsibility movement to educate and empower adults to KNOW the signs of abuse, and TELL responsible authorities when they suspect a child needs help. Development has begun for the KNOW & TELL online eCourse comprised of three key modules: • Educate: Learn the signs of neglect, physical and sexual abuse to identify a child victim and understand your responsibility as a mandated reporter. • Inform: Know when and how to report suspected abuse when a child needs your help. • Protect: Recognize your role in the child protection system; we all have a responsibility to protect children. The eCourse is free and expected to be made available to educators, coaches and youth-serving organizations in February 2019. Each module is approximately 30 minutes in length and a certification will be awarded at the conclusion of the eCourse after successful completion of a short quiz.

Granite State Children’s Alliance (GSCA) serves as the NH Chapter of the National Children’s Alliance (NCA) and is the statewide organization for New Hampshire’s 11 Child Advocacy Centers (CACs). There is a CAC in each county with Hillsborough County having two centers, one in Nashua and one in Manchester.

Granite State Children’s Alliance fully supports the only statewide fundraiser for Child Advocacy Centers: Beards for Bucks-Razorless for a Reason. Law enforcement officers from across the state are allowed to grow professional-looking facial hair for the month of October as a fun and engaging way to raise money for their local CAC. Officers and CACs depend on the generosity of the community to make this event a success. Another investment opportunity is expanding our KNOW & TELL program. Its continued success and growth is made possible by our donors. Please visit our website to learn more.

By helping them achieve their dreams we also strengthen our community.

Mission Statement:

We are all focused on one thing: making the dreams of the individuals we serve a reality.

Nicole Johnson, Development Coordinator 11 Sandy Point Road, Stratham, NH 03885 603-778-8193

Our goal for the coming year is to continue to set children on the path to success by: listening to parent’s concerns and questions about their child’s development; identifying areas of strength and concern; creating child-specific goals with a comprehensive, family-centered plan on how the child will meet them; empowering parents and caregivers with knowledge of how to best work with and support their child; supporting each child’s success through certified, expert occupational, speech and physical therapy and early childhood education; encouraging and celebrating every small change; advocating for each child’s best interests and needs as he/she transitions to school. Two areas of focus in the coming year will be on: 1. building awareness of the critical importance of a child’s early development and the early identification of needs as well as increasing parent comfort level with initiating assessments while reducing the stigma attached to identified delays and need for intervention and 2. advocating at the state level for the most effective infrastructure for the system of care and the appropriate provision of funds to identify and support all children in need of early intervention.

Fundraising Events:

The 14th Annual Seacoast’s Original Touch-A-Truck will be held Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 9am-1pm at Pease International Tradeport, Portsmouth, NH. Kids have the opportunity to climb on and explore various vehicles from front loaders to excavators to buses, even a ride-on train! The 27th Annual Richie Golf Tourney will be held in June 2019. The 5th Annual Bruins Alumni vs Team Richie will take place on Saturday, March 9, 2019. This is a fun-filled event for hockey fans with the opportunity to meet some of your favorite Bruins alumni.

Giving Opportunities:

There is no shortage of giving opportunities at RMCC. This past year we served over 340 children, all unique, each one with individual and important needs, every one vulnerable and deserving of the best start in life. You can be a part of changing the trajectory of a child’s life by making a financial donation to RMCC’s annual campaign at any time, by sponsoring one of our fundraising events, by designating RMCC as the recipient of donations made in memory of a loved one, or securing the future of RMCC with a gift to our endowment.

Volunteer Opportunities:

We love our volunteers! One of the best ways to support our mission is by serving as a full-time advocate for the importance of early childhood development simply by talking with friends, family and community members about the work that we do at RMCC. We rely on the expertise of business men and women to offer pro bono work in areas of design, finance and HR. More specific volunteer opportunities are available each year through our fundraising events, spring/fall clean-up projects or various administrative projects.

Spaulding Youth Center 2019 Goals:

Spaulding Youth Center is a leading provider of educational, residential, therapeutic and foster care programs and services for children and youth with neurological, emotional, behavioral, learning or developmental challenges, including Autism Spectrum Disorder and those who have experienced significant trauma, abuse or neglect. Our primary goal continues to be the pursuit of excellence throughout our organization, across campus and in our community. This includes delivering highquality care, treatment and education to our children and families, retaining excellent staff with high performance expectations and attractive career opportunities, and offering a safe, caring and high-functioning culture based on kindness.

Mission Statement:

Supporting exceptional children and families toward a successful future.

Top Funding Sources:

Funding is primarily provided from referring school districts, Division of Children, Youth and Families, NH Department of Education, Medicaid and counterpart agencies from other states. The Spaulding Youth Center Foundation Endowment was founded in 1986 to raise funds to support the programs, values and goals of Spaulding Youth Center, its sole beneficiary. Funding is also provided through private donations and grants from individuals, foundations and community organizations. YEAR ESTABLISHED: 1958 EMPLOYEES: 243 ANNUAL REVENUE: $16,000,000

Service Locations:

Located in Northfield, NH, our campus is set on a nearly 500-acre scenic hilltop, with woods, fields and mountain vistas. The campus offers a safe, supportive and intensely therapeutic environment. On our campus, we serve children and families from across New Hampshire as well as other New England states.

Fundraising Events:

Our Signature Breakfast Fundraiser is hosted each October and offers a variety of sponsorship opportunities. Our 2018 event Trauma to Triumph will include a keynote by Dr. Susan Craig, author of “Reaching and Teaching Children Who Hurt�. Children surviving significant trauma, abuse or neglect are haunted by the absence of basic human needs required for healthy psychological development. Join us to learn about how their journey can be one from trauma to triumph and how supporting Spaulding helps children to heal from these beginnings to grow beyond their believed potential toward a successful future. Tickets can be purchased online at

Giving Opportunities:

Since public funding covers only essential living, clinical and educational expenses, every donated dollar can have a profound impact for a child on campus. In addition to our event sponsorships, we also offer additional sponsorship opportunities which provide significant benefits and value to corporate partners. Private donation opportunities include gifts of stock, matching gifts, gifts of goods and services, tribute or memorial gifts and lifetime gift planning. We would welcome the opportunity to design a custom package to support your professional or personal giving goals. Our website includes a list of available sponsorships and offers the ability to donate securely and conveniently online.

Volunteer Opportunities:

We cherish volunteers who would like to give the gift of time and service to our children. Volunteer opportunities are abundant both on campus and in our community. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your ideas and interests to develop a custom opportunity to meet your professional or personal volunteer goals. Whether you have a personal talent, a community connection, a corporate service day or wish to dedicate time toward charitable activities, we look forward to providing a rewarding volunteer opportunity for you.
