NH business review
elcome to NH Business Review’s fifth annual Charitable Giving Guide, a compilation of the stories and details of many of the Granite State’s most vital nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits are essential to New Hampshire’s economy. 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. By providing the opportunity for nonprofits to inform our readers about their mission, their operations and the communities they serve, the Charitable Giving Guide lets New Hampshire nonprofits get their message out to more residents and businesses in the Granite State. But another goal of this publication is to inspire you to contribute your time, talent or money to support the many, many nonprofits that strive every day to strengthen New Hampshire’s community and make it a better place. The Guide has specific information about these nonprofits, along with ways to get more involved in corporate giving and ideas on how to encourage from your staff and peers. While many of the nonprofits included in these pages may be familiar, you may just discover one that’s new to you and learn about the important work it does. And this year, we have even more nonprofits taking part, for you to learn about. 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
here do you find community? It is an increasingly important question, in these fractious times. And my bet is that your answer, at least in part, includes things like: “My local library.” “My son’s ballet school.” “The soup kitchen where I volunteer.” “My hiking group.” Guess what? Your local library, that ballet school and soup kitchen are all nonprofits. That hiking group might be too, and its members are probably walking on trails conserved for their enjoyment by a nonprofit. Community matters. Especially now. We are facing an array of challenges: wealth inequality, climate change, inadequate health care, structural racism, violence. All of those challenges are exacerbated by an increased sense of isolation and polarization — a torn social fabric that needs repair. Nonprofits are tackling every one of those critical issues facing our communities. Renewal in America — and the shared will it takes to create lasting solutions to shared problems — won’t happen on Twitter or with talking heads on TV. It will happen as it always has happened — from the ground up. It will happen because ordinary people in communities do what is needed to make it happen. The nonpartisan Aspen Institute has started a fascinating project, led by journalist David Brooks, called “Weave, the Social Fabric Project.” Here is how Brooks describes it: “The Weaver movement is repairing our country’s social fabric, which is badly frayed by distrust, division and exclusion. People are quietly working across America to end loneliness and isolation and weave inclusive communities.” Nonprofit organizations and the people who support them are some of society’s most important weavers. They are at the heart of that movement: mentoring our kids, and caring for our elders, promoting civil discourse, teaching our shared history, welcoming new neighbors, protecting the planet for future generations. Every day, nonprofits are building the relationships and doing the work that makes our communities stronger. Giving, too, is an act of weaving. As you explore this guide, think about the nonprofits that are the weavers in your community. And please do what you can — as a giver, a volunteer, as a weaver — to further that critical work. Our shared health and prosperity, the vibrancy of our communities, depend on the weavers among us. They depend on you.

A letter from
Caring for our communities in extraordinary ways.
t Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health, 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 one of our Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health member organizations. 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.

A letter from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care FOUNDATION
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 $150 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 2018, through our minigrant program, the Foundation distributed $609,450 in employee-directed minigrants to 823 not-for-profit organizations in 288 communities. In 2018, Harvard Pilgrim employees worked more than 3,824 volunteer hours to serve nonprofit causes. Locally, we have partnered with City Year New Hampshire, DartmouthHitchcock, 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. The Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation continues to be an important partner to the New Hampshire Food Bank. Earlier this year, we awarded a three-year $75,000 Healthy Food Fund grant aimed at increasing access to fresh, nutritious food for those in need in New Hampshire. This critical funding will enable the New Hampshire Food Bank to host weekly, seasonal, fresh food pantries at the New Hampshire Food Bank in Manchester; to substantially increase distribution of locally grown, fresh produce to those in need in northern New Hampshire; and to host two mobile food pantries in western New Hampshire. 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 continued drug crisis in New Hampshire, we recently announced our second annual Opioid Misuse Prevention, Recovery and Treatment Grants program. We felt it was important to continue to support those organizations helping to prevent and treat individuals and their families affected by opioid misuse in the state by 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.

A letter from THE LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETY
very three minutes, someone in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer, including leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Cancer is a tough opponent, but we at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) are tougher. Our track record in accelerating lifesaving treatments is unparalleled, and we champion the most pioneering research to fuel our attack against cancer. We are laser-focused on cures, and weâ€™re relentless in supporting patients and their families throughout their cancer experience to ensure they have access to care. Our work is advancing breakthroughs for more than 1.3 million Americans living with or in remission from a blood cancer, and importantly, it is helping patients with other cancers and diseases. In 2018, we provided 163 New Hampshire blood cancer patients with more than $365,000 of direct financial assistance to help afford their insurance premiums, healthcare cost-sharing or treatment-related travel expenses. We are committed to patients and caregivers from the time of diagnosis and throughout their cancer experience, ensuring they have access to quality, affordable and coordinated care. Nearly 70 years of fighting blood cancers has led us to a game-changing belief â€”beating cancer is in our blood. With your support, we are transforming this powerful belief into reality for more patients.

A letter from KENNEBUNK SAVINGS
ew Hampshire has a strong network of nonprofits that deliver on their mission every single day, making our communities better through their work. Whether it’s providing a hot meal to the hungry, preserving our green spaces and landmarks for future generations, or providing a safe space for our children to grow and learn, New Hampshire’s nonprofits are stepping up to the plate. That’s why Kennebunk Savings is so proud to be a part of NH Business Review’s Charitable Giving Guide. In the pages ahead, you’ll find information about some of New Hampshire’s nonprofit organizations. Whether you’re a business or nonprofit leader, we hope you will find an example of a partnership in these pages that speaks to you or helps plant the seed for future business and nonprofit collaborations. This is a special year for Kennebunk Savings. We are celebrating the 25th anniversary of our Community Promise Program. In 1994, Kennebunk Savings Bank CEO Joel Stevens had an idea that, just as a stock-held institution pays a dividend to its investors, Kennebunk Savings as a mutual institution should pay a dividend to its communities. From that idea, our Community Promise Program was born. Each year, we dedicate 10% of our annual after-tax net profit to nonprofits in our communities. Since 1994 we have remained committed to Stevens’ promise and the pledge has become an integral part of our identity and culture. Kennebunk Savings donated $26,000 to charitable organizations in the program’s first year, and since that time has given more than $13 million to nonprofit organizations in York County and seacoast New Hampshire. In the 25th year of the program, the Bank’s growth will result in a record $1 million being donated to area nonprofits. Kennebunk Savings designates a portion of our Community Promise budget to our Spotlight Fund, an annual effort to direct grant money to a targeted issue affecting our communities. For a second straight year, the Spotlight Fund is focusing on efforts to combat substance use disorder prevention and recovery efforts. So far, we have donated $225,000 to nonprofits who are truly making a difference in this area. I always say the financial aspects of our Community Promise and Spotlight Fund are great, but the people piece of these programs is what is truly compelling. We have a tremendous group of dedicated employees who consistently volunteer thousands of hours of their personal time each year, from serving on governing boards to hands-on participation at the multitude of fundraising and awareness events taking place each month. They are self-motivated by an inner drive to help others; they are truly a special group of people and our communities are enriched by them. We hope that this copy of the Charitable Giving Guide inspires you to form the bonds that make our communities better places, because helping one another is always the right thing to do.

New Hampshire Charitable Foundation
‘TO SERVE AND GIVE AND MAKE SOMETHING BETTER’ Tricia and Paul Casey have included charitable giving in their will and want their charitable dollars to be deployed where they are needed most — whatever the future may bring
t’s all very personal. Tricia Casey’s mom wanted her daughter to have the best education possible. At the time, she was a single mom and money was tight. Tricia knew that financial aid provided by total strangers allowed her to attend the parochial school that her mom had chosen. Paul Casey remembers growing up in Boy Scouts, doing service projects, being coached in sports by volunteers and family members, giving at church, always collecting for the United Way and for UNICEF. Jack and Scarlett Casey are growing up with giving and volunteering as much a part of their family life as family dinner and walking the dog. Tricia works now for the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, and has had a long career in the nonprofit sector. Her mom led her Girl Scout troop when she was a kid, and Tricia grew up deeply connected to volunteering and giving through scouting and church. Now, she leads Scarlett’s Girl Scout troop. She tells the story of her own childhood scholarships as she helps raise money for her kids’ schools. Paul works for Trader Joe’s grocery store in Nashua and coaches youth sports. The Caseys know that there will come a time when they will have money to leave in their estate, and they have made the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation a beneficiary, joining the Foundation’s Spaulding-Potter Legacy Circle. They have also planned bequests to other nonprofits and to the college where they met. “When you feel that passionate about an organization or a cause, you treat them just like your family,” Tricia said. “I was raised with it and that is how we raised our kids — to serve and give and make something better.” Making these decisions relatively early — and talking to their kids about them — has been deliberate, and opened the door to new learning and conversations for the whole family. Each of the kids speak matter-of-factly about what they would do with a hypothetical windfall: half to family, half to charities. Their giving would help treat diseases, care for animals, feed the hungry. Jack, at 15, has a well-developed sense that everyone stands to suffer when some do not have access to opportunity. What if, he asks, the person who has the potential to make “the next huge scientific breakthrough” doesn’t accomplish what they could because they lack resources, and “don’t feel they could achieve anything because they don’t have anything. Giving back could give that person help and determination.” The Caseys have made all of their bequests unrestricted, for the organizations to use where they are most needed. “It’s harder on agencies and charities to raise unrestricted funds,” Tricia said. Generous people frequently direct their giving to programs, but are often less enthusiastic about funding staffing or other costs. “I

know, from personal experience,” Tricia said, “that you can’t have any of it unless you have the staff who run it.” The Caseys trust the organizations they have chosen to use the funds wisely. “The point of giving to a charity is to make a charity better,” Paul adds. “Not to enact your will on their thing.” They chose to include New Hampshire’s statewide community foundation, in part, for its range and agility to address the state’s needs. “One of the really neat things about the Charitable Foundation is that flexibility to pivot to address the most critical needs. What are the needs of our community going to be in 10 years? Twenty years? Fifty years?” Tricia said. “We like that and we don’t want to get in the way of that. When we are long gone, we won’t have the benefit of being able to say what is most important.” Making the bequests, Tricia said, has helped the family feel deeply connected to the organizations and invested in their success. Twelve-year-old Scarlett has been listening closely. She pipes up from her spot on the couch. Giving, she explains, “makes you feel good inside. So it does something good for you, too.”
CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF
In 1994, Kennebunk Savings started its Community Promise program as a way to enhance the lives of those who live, work and play in the communities we serve. We donate our time and dollars to area nonprofits that make a lasting impact. Why? We believe that giving back is just the right thing to do.
The Spotlight Fund was created to shine a light on a widespread issue affecting our communities and support that cause. Each year, a portion of our Community Promise is directed to the Spotlight Fund.

APPLYING ‘CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM’ TO YOUR MISSION Mainstay Technologies ‘pays it forward’ through its donor-advised fund at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation: from helping refugee children be able to attend summer camp to contributing to a scholarship to help a student get his associate degree at NHTI
o Ryan Barton, the rocking-chair test is way more important than the most-toys test. The CEO of Mainstay Technologies, who oversees a growing IT and cybersecurity company with offices in Manchester and Belmont and clients in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, wants to pass the test he knows he will give himself someday, from his porch rocker: Did he genuinely strengthen community and have a positive impact on the lives of the people around him? The other test, about collecting the most toys? That one doesn’t really matter to him. Don’t get him wrong: Barton is in business to do well. But he defines doing well pretty holistically. “I am very proud of Mainstay’s profit margins,” he says, “but ultimately, that is not the only score that is to be kept.” Barton got into business young. As a tech-savvy 20-something, he discovered a talent and a passion for making companies’ tech run smoothly — a talent and passion that he would build into Mainstay. He had no interest in locating the business in a sprawling center of commerce — he wanted to stick around in a place with no traffic and great natural beauty, where he could build a balanced life with his family. And he wanted to draw people to his business who wanted the same things. Along the way, he discovered the philosophy of “conscious capitalism” — and the book by the same name. The idea that business can and should be marshaled to do good not just for shareholders but also for people and the planet dovetailed, he said, with his values as a Christian, and with the stewardship obligation he feels to people and community and the environment. He has applied the “conscious capitalist” philosophy to every aspect of building his business (Mainstay’s mission statement is “We give more than we get.”) from generous benefits packages to energy-efficient lighting and solar arrays, and from paid volunteer time off to corporate philanthropy. To make its corporate giving more intentional, Mainstay recently opened a donor-advised fund at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. The company matches employee contributions into the fund 1:1, plus Mainstay makes additional lump-sum gifts quarterly. A “charity team,” comprised of Barton and four other team members from all aspects of Mainstay’s operation, decide what kind of work to support, and Charitable Foundation staff offer suggestions of organizations working in New Hampshire that align with those priorities. The Mainstay team recommends the grants, which are then made from the fund at the Foundation. Erin Mealey is an information security program specialist at Mainstay. She said Mainstay’s charity program is part of what people value about working for the company. “To be able to be part of an organization that pays that forward in such a significant way, that sends this message of continuous giving, and continually trying to improve our

community is really important to me,” she said. And being on the charity team has brought members outside their usual white-collar bubbles. They are learning about the visceral, sometimes heartbreaking needs in the community around them — and how to help. They learned that lack of available cash to pay for a required “home study” is sometimes the obstacle that blocks foster parents from being able to adopt children in need — and that often those children are their own grandchildren, who have suffered the trauma of losing a parent to the opioid crisis. The team recommended a grant to help pay for home studies, and help give those children the security of forever homes. They have made annual grants to help refugee children be able to attend summer camp at Camp Spaulding. And because many people at Mainstay understand, from lived experience, how valuable a degree from a New Hampshire community college is, they recommended a grant into a Charitable Foundation scholarship fund that helped a first-generation college student afford his associate degree in computer technology from NHTI. Mainstay’s giving is not just in the form of dollars — the company also organizes staff volunteer days (they built a human-sized foosball array for the kids at Camp Spaulding during a recent outing) in addition to paid volunteer time off for staff. The financial bottom line matters. But so do other things. “We want to see our community strengthened — we want to see that in the environment and in our charities,” Barton said. “We want to give more and give better and inspire more action within the team and encourage more volunteerism. “At a foundational level,” Barton thinks “business success needs to be measured by its impact on others, and the good it does in the world.”

New Hampshire Charitable Foundation
Food Pantries Need More than Food Why core mission support is the best support you can give By Anne Phillips, director of grantmaking, and Melinda Mosier, director of donor services, at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation
s you read this, a nonprofit organization is keeping a mother and her children safe from domestic abuse. An elder knows that someone from Meals-onWheels will be coming to check on him — and deliver a hot lunch. A watershed critical to clean drinking water is being protected. A downtown is coming back to life — with help from arts and economic development nonprofits. Nonprofit media are keeping citizens informed about the news of the day. A child is getting dental care. A New American is learning English. A young boy has a mentor. Nonprofits are at the heart of civil society, tending to our most pressing needs, caring for the most vulnerable among us. And yet most struggle, year-over-year, to maintain enough funding to carry out missions that make our communities healthier, happier, safer, more vibrant and prosperous. Nonprofits not only need our support — they need support that is not earmarked for discrete items, programs or projects and more broadly funds their critical core missions. It can be tempting to direct charitable dollars only to specific items, projects or programs — and away from “overhead” like staffing, facilities and materials. It is absolutely understandable — and commendable — for people to want to know where their money is going and to want to quantify its impact. But we would encourage generous people to take a holistic approach when they think about what it takes for nonprofits to do what they do for our communities. If you are going to make a donation to a food pantry, for instance, it might be natural to think about restricting your donation to pay only for food. Your desire to help feed your neighbors who are struggling is, after all, what prompted you to make the donation. But if no one supported the food pantry’s staffing, rent, electricity and outreach — in addition to the food for its shelves and coolers — there would be no food pantry. There would be a bag of groceries on a street corner. We understand this, intuitively, about every other kind of business. Author Vu Le, who writes extensively about the
nonprofit sector, puts it this way: “No one goes to a bakery and says ‘I want to buy a cake, but I don’t want any of this $20 I am giving you to pay for the vanilla or the electricity for the oven or for your chef’s salary.’” But too frequently, we have been encouraged to do exactly that when we think about giving to nonprofits. At the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, we encourage people to offer support to nonprofits that simply lets them get on with the important business of fulfilling their missions. Nonprofit leaders in New Hampshire run enormously complex organizations tackling some of society’s most pressing challenges. They really do know best what they need, and are best-positioned to decide where and how to deploy precious capital to meet their missions. Core mission support gives nonprofits the flexibility to direct spending where it is needed, and allows for adaptability and innovation. It allows organizations to strengthen infrastructure to ensure they can carry out effective programs into the future. When the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation surveyed our grantees with help from The Center for Effective Philanthropy, we got this message loud and clear: Nonprofits need more funding that supports their core missions. The Charitable Foundation increased this kind of support during the most recent recession. Other funding streams for critical services were drying up, and nonprofits desperately needed an influx of flexible capital to help fill budget gaps. The reality is that funding that disappeared during that recession is, for the most part, not coming back. Nonprofits are doing more with less, facing decreased resources and increased need for services — and they badly need more flexibility from funders. Last year, the Foundation changed its competitive Community Grants program so that all the largest grants from that program are for operating support, and the vast majority are now multiyear grants. Many generous people who hold donor-advised funds at the Foundation regularly recommend grants from those funds for core operating support. No matter how much you have to give to support the nonprofits that you know are doing critical work in your community, we encourage you to give to support their whole missions — and to feel great about doing that. Food pantries, after all, need more than food.
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.

Grantmaking for collective impact People’s United Community Foundation ties its priorities to New Hampshire Tomorrow initiative By Lois Shea
eople’s United Bank, which has more than 400 branches across New England and New York, established a charitable foundation 12 years ago to help make life better for people in the communities it serves. The foundation, like the bank, is headquartered in Connecticut. But it relies on the community knowledge of its local officers to inform grantmaking in each state. “We have local representatives who know the communities best,” said Karen Galbo, executive director of the People’s United Community Foundation. “They understand the needs of their communities and know the local partners who are most effectively addressing the issues, so they are instrumental in our grantmaking process.” In New Hampshire, that local knowledge led to the decision for the People’s United Community Foundation to align its grantmaking with the priorities of “New Hampshire Tomorrow,” the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s 10year, $100-million initiative to increase opportunity for young people who currently have the least access to opportunity. The initiative includes four areas of focus: Early childhood development; family and youth supports; substance use prevention, treatment and recovery; and education and career pathways. “New Hampshire Tomorrow is about making sure that all of our kids – regardless of how much their families struggle economically, or what neighborhoods they were born into – have an equal opportunity to reach their potential,” said Tym Rourke, director of New Hampshire Tomorrow. “Truly closing the gaps in opportunity that exist today will take a coordinated, sustained effort by the public, private, education and philanthropic sectors. It’s wonderful to see funders like the People’s United Community Foundation adding the power of their aligned grantmaking to this effort.” Dianne Mercier, president of People’s United in New Hampshire, where the bank operates 26 branches, helps inform the People’s United New Hampshire grantmaking. “The way we address issues is community by community and neighborhood by neighborhood,” said Mercier, a longtime volunteer and champion of the state’s nonprofit sector, including serving on the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s board of directors. She said that aligning the People’s United Community Foundation’s local grantmaking with the priorities of New Hampshire Tomorrow makes sense, because by taking care of the kids in a community, you are ultimately caring for the whole community. Children who have the opportunity to reach their potential today become the adults who will sustain and contribute to our communities tomorrow. “We are really proud of the grants that support summer learning and summer preparation – this is an area that we learned a lot about through the Charitable Foundation,” Mercier said. “Young people who are not able to have the kinds of social experiences that their middle- and upper-class neighbors have fell significantly behind during the summer months. We went out looking for the organi-

zations that would provide this kind of help.” Grants to four different Boys and Girls Clubs, two YMCAs and the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains are giving New Hampshire kids those positive summer experiences. Recent grants have also gone to Big Brothers/Big Sisters of New Hampshire, Waypoint (formerly Child and Family Services) Easter Seals New Hampshire, Families in Transition, the Friends Program, the Upper Room Family Resource Center, the Spaulding Youth Center, among others. Funding is helping kids get mentors, supporting high-quality early learning and helping provide wraparound services for struggling young families. Galbo said it only made sense for the People’s United Community Foundation to embrace a “collective impact” model, because working together for maximum impact is exactly what the foundation encourages its grantees to do. “If you have a shared vision and are all working towards the same goal, you can have a much greater impact than working in isolation,” Galbo said. Ultimately, aligning the grantmaking with the Charitable Foundation’s New Hampshire Tomorrow initiative is about doing the most possible good for New Hampshire kids and communities, said Mercier. “We need to be able to give our young people and teenagers the notion and the hope that they are going to be able to contribute meaningfully to their neighborhoods,” Mercier said. “Every single one of us is going to benefit by taking care of young people.” Lois Shea is staff writer for the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Greater Giving is a regular series produced by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation in partnership with NH Business Review aimed at helping to promote a culture of giving in New Hampshire’s business community.

Charitable Giving Guide 2020 13
Adding meaning and purpose in retirement Giving and volunteering help people stay happy and healthy in retirement By Elise Salek
n my practice as a tax, trusts and estates attorney, I work with many people planning for retirement. I see them seeking out new experiences and embracing the opportunity to give of themselves to organizations and causes about which they feel passionate. I see people making critical retirement decisions (including decisions about where to move) based in part on the volunteer opportunities that are available to them. Increasingly, people are not “retiring in place,” but choosing communities that have the kind of facilities they need — and that afford them access to the kinds of experiences they want to have. People pick retirement destinations because they have found the museum, the symphony, the library or the hospital in which they intend to volunteer. That involvement is really good for everyone — for the volunteers and donors, for the nonprofits and for the communities they serve. Study after study shows that people who stop being involved fail more quickly, mentally and physically. And people who are active and engaged are happier and healthier. A 2018 study from the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy found that men and women continue to give after retirement; people who have been generous during their working lives will keep right on being generous after they retire, both with their time and their money, and derive the same satisfaction and sense of purpose from that giving. Here are some effective tools to consider when planning for giving during retirement: • Giving stock: Many retirees own low-basis stock that has been in their portfolio for decades; a sale of this stock would result in significant capital gain. Rather than gift cash to charities, retirees can gift their low-basis stock instead. The nonprofit organization can then sell the stock without paying any capital gain, thus enhancing the total value of the gift. • Donor-advised funds: Many people use donor-advised funds to give throughout their working lives and continue to use them during retirement. Since selling a family business is often the catalyst for retirement, the
14 Charitable Giving Guide 2020
time of a sale is often a good time to establish or grow a donor-advised fund. That transition can be a very difficult time to make thoughtful decisions about charitable gifts, but donating into a donor-advised fund allows you to set money aside — and make decisions about how to allocate those resources later, while also reducing tax burden at the time of the sale. The NH Charitable Foundation offers donor-advised funds — and their staff is expert at connecting generous people with nonprofit organizations doing great work to make sure your charitable dollars do the most good. If you wish, you can name your children as advisors to your fund, involving the next generation in giving now, or name them or others as successor advisors, to carry on your giving traditions. Other types of charitable funds — like scholarships, or funds to benefit a specific interest area or region, can also be established. • Power of attorney: When preparing powers of attorney, I always ask if my clients also want to authorize their agents to engage in charitable giving on their behalf. Invariably, the answer is yes. Powers of attorney can be drafted to allow an agent to continue a client’s pattern of charitable gifting if the client is no longer able to do this herself. • Gifts from IRAs: If you are over 70½, your required minimum distribution from a traditional IRA, or a portion of it, can be paid directly to a qualified 501(c)(3)nonprofit. The amount that is gifted to charity is not included in your adjusted gross income, which often results in tax savings. Retirees can also consider naming charities as beneficiaries of their IRAs via beneficiary designation. Retirement today looks very different from the way it looked for our parents. Today’s retirees are living longer — often 20 years beyond their retirement date. They view retirement as an opportunity to pursue their passions by working, volunteering, traveling and expanding their social networks. As each new generation moves into retirement with new passions and connections, giving and volunteering will continue to add purpose and satisfaction to their lives. And that is good news for everybody. Elise Salek, an attorney who chairs the Sulloway & Hollis Tax, Trusts and Estates Practice Group in Concord, also serves on the NH Charitable Foundation’s Capital Region advisory board.

Together, Dartmouth-Hitchcock and its health system partners are innovating to meet the challenges of serving a wide and predominantly rural region and deliver on their commitment to clinical excellence, collaboration and putting the needs of patients and families first.
We advance health through research, education, clinical practice and community partnerships, providing each person the best care, in the right place, at the right time, every time.
Numerous events offer community members the opportunity to join in supporting the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD), New Hampshire’s only children’s hospital, and Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of the nation’s leading centers for cancer care, research and prevention. Chief among these are the CHaD Hero (www.CHaDhero.org), which funds critical support services for CHaD patients and their families, and The Prouty (www.TheProuty.org), which brings together thousands of cyclists, walkers, golfers, rowers and event volunteers to raise funds for patient services and innovative research at the Cancer Center.
Top Funding Sources:
Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s primary funding sources are patient service revenue; other operating revenue; federal clinical and research grants; and philanthropic support from grateful patients, private foundations and businesses.

Serving 25 cities and towns in southern New Hampshire including Nashua and Manchester and the 10-suite Community Hospice House in Merrimack, NH.
Our number one priority is to consistently provide superior outcomes for patients of all ages including children, the elderly, the acute and chronically ill and those at end of life. Serving 25 communities in southern New Hampshire, we provide traditional home care, including nursing, rehabilitation therapies, medical social work and licensed nursing assistants. Our hospice team cares for dying patients in the home, in nursing facilities and in our own Community Hospice House. We pride ourselves on being named 2017 Business of the Year in Healthcare by Business NH Magazine, as well as earning a perfect score on a recent health survey by the NH Department of Health and Human Services. For compassionate, experienced, skilled care, families and physicians rely on Home Health & Hospice Care, one of the region’s most experienced visiting nurse associations.
Home Health & Hospice Care and the Community Hospice House depend on the generosity of a caring community to provide free and subsidized care to those patients who fall through the insurance cracks and have no resources to pay for care. One can contribute to HHHC’s Annual Fund, by giving memorial gifts in honor of a loved one or friend, naming HHHC in their will or planned giving arrangements and participating in events and corporate sponsorships.
HHHC has over 200 volunteers who provide a variety of services, from taking patients to physician appointments to sitting at the bedside of a dying patient for presence. We have a comprehensive volunteer training program that allows interested people to learn and have a very meaningful volunteer experience.

Monarch School of New England 2020 Goals:
The Monarch School of New England supports individuals with special needs so they can realize their greatest potential. In this nurturing environment, a comprehensively trained staff works one-on-one with each individual, uniquely integrating both education and therapy, to ensure successful transitions to school and to the community.
Top Funding Sources:
Primary funding comes from earned income paid by school districts, for tuition and therapy services. Additional funding comes from generous sponsors and participants who support special events, donations from businesses and individuals, and grants. Year established: 1974 emploYees: 120 annual revenue: $7,498,079
The Monarch School of New England serves students from school districts across New Hampshire and southern Maine. Currently students from 29 different school districts attend the school, typically coming from within an hour and a half’s drive to Rochester, New Hampshire, where both campuses of the Monarch School of New England are located. University interns from the New England area also come to the Monarch School of New England for practicum placements.
Over the past three to five years, the Monarch School of New England has grown into a regional elementary / middle and high school / vocational center — we have far exceeded our early beginnings. As such, our staff has increased to over 100, coupled with an increase in our student population to include 63 students in the 2018 fall semester. To address the continued demand for our services, our 2020 goals concentrate on becoming even better at what we do. Our goal is to go deeper into our work: to remember our beginnings and to build upon our roots of individualized, unique programming designed to meet the needs of every student that attends the Monarch School of New England. In addition, building upon our uniqueness, another key goal in 2020 is to ensure that our high school students transition to some type of work or community service when they are 21 years old. We want to show our students have what it takes to make their community or work site a better place to be, not only because of how they might be able to help but also because of who they are and what they bring to it.
The Monarch School of New England offers a number of events throughout the calendar year as fundraising opportunities, including a Golf Tournament and Motorcycle Ride. There are opportunities for sponsors and participants within these special events. Additionally, the Monarch School of New England welcomes partnerships with local businesses, who host Vocational Program students for community-based job placements and frequently support the school with financial or in-kind donations as well.
The Monarch School of New England’s philosophy is to provide unlimited possibilities for students with special needs. The school is known for excellence in academic, therapeutic, functional life skills and vocational programming for students with special needs. The school is grateful for gifts of any size, which benefit the innovative supports and opportunities that put the school’s philosophy into action. More information about current opportunities to support the school can be found at: monarchschoolne.org/ donate/. Online giving is available, or checks can be made payable to: Monarch School of New England, P.O. Box 1921, Rochester, NH 03867. Thank you for your consideration.
Volunteers are welcome in a variety of capacities at the Monarch School of New England. Students benefit from the opportunity to learn from, and interact with, caring, community members who are invested in supporting the potential of students with disabilities. Examples of volunteer engagement opportunities include peers from public high schools joining in social groups on a monthly basis, community members assisting at recreational activities such as kayaking or adaptive ski, supporting special events and fundraisers, or contributing to a special building project. Interested potential volunteers should contact the school to explore the possibilities for service that would best fit their unique talents, gifts and availability.

Spaulding Youth Center 2020 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.
Supporting exceptional children and families toward a successful future.
Top Funding Sources:
Funding is primarily provided from referring school districts, DCYF, DOE, Medicaid and counterpart agencies from other states. Since referral sources support only 90% of expenses, 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. Private donations and grants from individuals, foundations and community organizations help fund activities, projects and programs which would not otherwise be afforded through public funding but that directly benefit the children in our care. YEAR ESTABLISHED: 1871 EMPLOYEES: 260 ANNUAL REVENUE: $18,000,000
Located in Northfield, NH, our campus is set on a nearly 500-acre scenic hilltop, with woods, fields and mountain vistas, where we serve children and families from across New Hampshire as well as other New England states.
Spaulding Youth Center offers a variety of ways to provide support for our kids. In addition to participating in Giving Tuesday, NH Gives, AmazonSmile and other large coordinated fundraising efforts, we are continuously identifying ways to connect with those individuals and companies who would like to learn more about our organization and the children and families we serve. We recently launched our latest endeavor, a summer celebration of Spaulding friends held on our campus with breathtaking views of the landscape and an insider view of residential life.
Since public funding covers only 90% of essential living, clinical and educational expenses, every dollar donated has a profound impact for each child on campus. Private donation opportunities include unrestricted or restricted gifts, gifts of goods and services, matching gifts, stock, tribute or memorial gifts and lifetime gift planning. We offer additional opportunities that provide significant benefits and value to philanthropic corporate partners. We welcome opportunities to design custom packages to support your professional or personal giving goals. Our website includes a list of available sponsorships and the ability to donate securely and conveniently online.
We cherish volunteers who would like to give the gift of time and service to our children. Volunteer opportunities are available 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.

Special Olympics New Hampshire 2020 Goals:
In addition to raising $2.3 million dollars to meet our annual operating needs, Special Olympics New Hampshire is hoping to raise an additional $300,000 to commemorate our 50th Anniversary. These funds will be used to celebrate this important milestone, help us reach more athletes and launch our movement into the future. Additional goals during this 50th anniversary year include celebrating the success of Special Olympics New Hampshire and recognizing the impact SONH programs have had in changing culture and providing education, as well as Special Olympics’ commitment to health care. Special Olympics is the largest provider of health care to those with intellectual disabilities.
Fundraising Events: Mission Statement:
The mission of Special Olympics New Hampshire is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Top Funding Sources:
Special Events: 57% Local Programs: 11% Individual & Other Donations: 9% Grants: 9% Direct Marketing: 8% Corporate Donations: 6% Year established: 1970 emploYees: 12 annual revenue: $2,235,000
There are many ways to support Special Olympics New Hampshire: Direct Donation – support Special Olympics by making a one time or recurring gift online, by mail, in person or by phone. Sponsorship – support one of our annual competitive or fundraising events through corporate sponsorship. Events — participate in one of our annual fundraisers or organize your own fundraising event to support our work. Join The Granite Circle Society — the Special Olympics New Hampshire Granite Circle Society is our recognition society for donors contributing gifts of $1,000 or more. Planned Gifts — Legacy gifts enable you to make a lasting contribution to Special Olympics New Hampshire at a level you may not have been able to achieve during your lifetime. In-kind Donations — donations of products and services can have a significant impact on the quality of our events and programming.
Special Olympics New Hampshire is a state-wide organization.
Special Olympics New Hampshire hosts dozens of fundraising events throughout the year. Signature fundraising events include the annual Penguin Plunge and High School Plunge held the first weekend in February at Hampton Beach, where hundreds of people plunge into the frigid waters of the Atlantic. The Winni Dip Weekend in March, held on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, brings out many more hearty souls willing to take a dip into the icy waters. During the summer months, law enforcement agencies across the state participate in the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a 500-mile run across New Hampshire culminating in the opening ceremonies of the State Summer Games on the campus of UNH in Durham. Additional fundraisers take place statewide courtesy of generous business partners like Circle K Stores, Applebee’s Restaurants, Coca-Cola Beverages Northeast and TD Bank.
Volunteers are the backbone of the Special Olympics movement. They are coaches, trainers, officials, event organizers, fundraisers and managers. They can also be unified partners — playing alongside athletes with intellectual disabilities — or fans cheering in the stands. Our volunteers are all ages and their commitments can range from an afternoon to a lifetime. With more than 5,000 volunteers needed annually, we are always looking for people willing to give their time and energy to support our mission.

Cedarcrest Center 2020 Goals:
Cedarcrest Center enriches the lives of children with complex medical and developmental needs, supports their families, and collaborates with other providers to build a continuum of care.
Top Funding Sources
Medicaid and school district funding are the primary sources of income for Cedarcrest Center. However, the current rate paid by Medicaid has not changed since 2009, despite higher costs associated with wages, equipment and utilities. 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. Contributions are needed to ensure Cedarcrest’s fiscal stability. Year established: 1947 emploYees: 100 (85 full-time employees) annual revenue: $6,000,000
Located in Keene, NH, serving children from New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine
Cedarcrest Center provides extended residential and short-term specialized medical care, advanced respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapies and education for children, infants to age 21. 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 expand capacity across the healthcare sector to address common concerns related to workforce development.
The 8th Annual Kids Care Walk and Roll, October 5th — A non-competitive walk or roll (with an assistive device) over a non-incline 2.1-mile course. Fun for people of all ages and abilities. Annual Tree Lighting and Sing-a-long — December 4th, 4:30 p.m.
Contributions support the operations of the organization and fund the gap that exists between the cost to provide the specialized medical care and the funding we receive from Medicaid. 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 www.cedarcrest4kids.org 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 sooth them, or take a walk with them around our gardens. Our volunteers include families, scouts, schools groups, high school and college students, and adults of all ages. Some volunteers work directly with the children we care for; others help with gardening or administrative projects. 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. To learn more about how you or your group can make a difference, email us at info@ cedarcrest4kids.org.

Community Bridges 2020 Goals
Community Bridges assures and maintains the integration, growth and interdependence of people with disabilities in their home communities so they have positive control over the lives they have chosen for themselves. Community Bridges is a leader in the development of and advocacy for innovative approaches in supporting families.
Top Funding Sources
Community Bridges remains focused on strengthening our core mission through dynamic and relevant programs and practices. We look forwarding to adding value to the quality of our services through your donations and grants. We will continue to offer exceptional services to individuals living with developmental disabilities or acquired brain disorders. Our approach is person-centered to ensure individuals take the lead in pursuing a good and self-determined life. We look to bridge any potential barriers between those we serve and their community through partnering with individuals needing support and their families. Among our many services available to people living with developmental disabilities or acquired brain injuries, we offer nine residential homes to those who benefit from assisted living. These homes offer an array of supports from medical assistance to community engagement. Although these services are imperative to living a comfortable, secure and included life, they do not make a house a home. This year, our annual campaign will be focused on Our Home. Our Home is designed to allow the community active participation in making our residents feel at home by offering more than just a place to be, but a place to live.
Through the Our Home campaign, we are raising funds for much needed repairs and upgrades in the nine homes offered to individuals we serve in need of supported housing. We are looking to replace dilapidated appliances and furniture, repair flooring and offer some comforts of home. In addition to our annual appeal, we participate in Giving Tuesday, the national day of giving during the holiday season as well as NH Gives, Granite United Way’s Annual Giving Campaign, and Amazon Smile. Please visit our website at www.communitybridgesnh.org/donate to make a direct online gift or download our donation by mail form.
We receive funding through the state and federal government for the supports and services offered through Community Bridges. Additional support through the generosity of community members by way of donations and grants contribute to the enriched quality of our organization’s programs.

Cross Roads House is dedicated to providing comprehensive solutions to ending homelessness. As one of the largest homeless shelters in the state, we meet a critical need, providing a safety net for many of the most vulnerable members of our community. We provide shelter, food, basic needs, targeted case management and supportive programs and services on-site, as well as postshelter case management for individuals and families once housing is obtained. In the upcoming year, we will continue to provide high-quality emergency and transitional shelter and supportive services 24/7/365 to the adults and children in our community who are experiencing homelessness and to help them move to safe, affordable, permanent housing. We also strive to increase the number of people who not only move to permanent housing but remain stably housed and do not return to homelessness.
Please join us for our 18th Annual Benefit by the Sea gala fundraiser, Saturday, May 2, 2020, at the Wentworth by the Sea Hotel in Newcastle. For more information about sponsorship opportunities or tickets, visit our website, www.crossroadshouse.org, or contact Jessica Parker at email@example.com.
Cross Roads House relies heavily on the generosity of our friends in the community. In fact, two thirds of our annual operating budget comes from private donors. Financial contributions at all levels are greatly appreciated to help us provide shelter and supportive services to the homeless families and individuals who seek our assistance. Additionally, donations of items from our wish list help us meet the needs of our residents, and run and maintain the shelter. Please visit www.crossroadshouse.org/donations for more information about donating, or to view our wish list.
The success at Cross Roads House would not be possible without the help of volunteers. Whether you can help once a month, or once a year, we appreciate your time and energy. We typically need help in these areas: Preparing and serving breakfast and dinner, child care, donation pickup and group days of service. Volunteer orientation is held monthly and is required for all volunteers. For more information about our volunteer program, contact Kristina Siegenthaler at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Future In Sight 2020 Goals:
We are proud to have made an impact on nearly 4,500 lives during our most recent fiscal year, yet we know there are thousands more people who need our help to safely navigate their world with vision loss. With more than 30,000 residents in New Hampshire who are blind or visually impaired, we at Future In Sight have a singular goal: to reach, serve and transform the lives of more individuals with profound vision loss across our state in 2020.
Transforming the lives of individuals with vision loss through education, training and support.
Top Funding Sources:

Our certified, professional team of 14 itinerant Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments and Orientation & Mobility Specialists serve students in nearly 50 school districts. Early Support Services are provided in-home for infants and toddlers. Social work, low vision rehabilitation, assistive technology and orientation & mobility team members are also mobile, going to where they are needed.
David Morgan President & CEO 25 Walker Street Concord, NH 03301 603-224-4039 firstname.lastname@example.org futureinsight.org
Our signature event, The Walk for Sight, is held on the morning of the first Saturday in June. This annual 3K walk through historic downtown Concord is an ideal teambuilding and community investment opportunity for businesses. It’s a chance to walk for wellness while raising critical funds to assure the well-being of individuals with profound vision loss throughout the Granite State. Throughout the year, we raise funds through Dinners in the Dark, which are hosted by local restaurants. This unforgettable sensory dining experience offers a glimpse into what it feels like to be blind, as dinner guests wear blindfolds once dinner begins. For more information on our events, visit https://futureinsight.org/stay-informed/events
Annual gifts are at the heart of our capacity to serve individuals of all ages who are blind or visually impaired, regardless of their ability to pay. When Future In Sight staff conducts home visits for seniors, for example, they quickly make enhancements tailored to specific vision issues that make food preparation and cooking easier — and safer. They help relocate items that can present trip and fall hazards. They help folks navigate routes into and out of their homes. Together, they make progress toward improved health status, greater independence and self esteem, while engaging in activities that reduce social isolation and increase their confidence so that they participate more fully in family and community life. Through your gift, you are a part of our life-changing work: https://futureinsight.org/donate
The inability to drive is one of the most limiting aspects of life for a person with vision loss. Thanks to dedicated volunteers, the adjustment to daily life can be made a bit easier. If you have a few hours a month to commit to taking someone to appointments or food shopping, we’d love to hear from you at 603-565-2409. You will change a life, and it might be your own. Be a part of our monthly Mission Tours held at 25 Walker Street to hear from individuals directly as they walk you through the ways their lives — and the lives of their families — have been transformed by Future In Sight. RSVP at 603-565-2427.

Goodwill Northern New England 2020 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 be instrumental in bringing 10,000 households in our region into stability by 2027.

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 computers, clothing, home goods, linens and books. Our community relations team will work with you to make it easy.
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 email@example.com to talk about specific opportunities.

Top Funding Sources:
The work of the New Hampshire Coalition to End Homelessness is supported by a diverse and robust funding stream which includes private grants, individual donations, corporate sponsorships and fees for the provision of professional development services.
As an increasing number of families and individuals struggle with obtaining and sustaining stable housing in New Hampshire, the NH Coalition to End Homelessness (NHCEH) works with partners across the state to research and implement the most effective ways to prevent and end homelessness. We identify solutions, educate providers on best practices, and empower people, some of whom are currently homeless, to advocate on behalf of all those who experience homelessness in our state. In 2020, we aim to continue helping young people who have experienced homelessness access higher education through our Hope Starts Here Scholarship. Similarly, our Granite Leaders Program will raise the voices of those who have experienced homelessness by providing them with the skills they need to inform positive change in communities across New Hampshire. Also in 2020, the NHCEH will initiate the New Hampshire Homelessness Advocate Collaborative, a program designed to strengthen collaboration and innovation within homeless services, thereby enhancing our collective impact in ending homelessness across the state.
Fundraise for NHCEH by hosting an event that raises money to benefit the NHCEHâ€™s programs and activities. Have a dinner, plan a car wash, or organize a benefit concert. Be creative! For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

NH-JAG 2020 Goals
Cultivating youth success through academic, leadership and workforce opportunities in collaboration with business and community partnerships.
Top Funding Sources
Staff development and community engagement are continuous goals as well as further developing the JAG Advantage across New Hampshire. In 2018, JAG introduced the JAG Advantage, which builds upon three core areas of the original JAG model: • Project Based Learning builds valuable communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills. • Trauma Informed Care helps youth that have faced trauma recognize their strengths and overcome adversity. • Employer Engagement provides students with the skills and opportunities to advance in the workplace and be successful in their careers and in their lives. The JAG Advantage is based on a promise that JAG will deliver learner-centered instruction to ensure youth achieve their fullest potential. In upholding this promise, JAG is developing the talent our nation needs to fuel the economy with new members of the workforce who are both prepared and resilient.
Primary funding comes from state and federal grants and school district contributions. Additional funding comes from generous foundations and businesses that support our programs and individual giving.
We look forward to hosting our 14th Annual Leadership Awards Breakfast, February 2020. NH-JAG believes that leadership is more than words. It’s action, and it’s important to recognize. That’s why NH-JAG hosts an annual Leadership Awards event to thank and honor statewide leaders empowering today’s youth, and in doing so, impacting the future. This event celebrates and honors key individuals and organizations that help make NH-JAG and, more importantly, its students successful. NH-JAG participates in NH Gives, an initiative of the NH Center for Nonprofits raising money and awareness for New Hampshire’s nonprofits through an online giving event in June.
Year established: 2000 emploYees: 14 annual revenue: $801,150
NH-JAG is a statewide nonprofit organization serving students throughout the state. Headquartered in Manchester, we partner with Berlin, Kennett, Laconia, Littleton, Manchester Memorial, MST, Newport, Raymond, Winnacunnet and Woodsville high schools. NH-JAG also operates an LNA training program serving students from the greater Concord area.

Richie McFarland Children’s Center 2020 Goals:
RMCC is an early childhood program whose purpose is to help young children reach their full developmental potential and to support their families through that process.
Top Funding Sources:
State Contract – 35% Earned Revenues – 44% Fundraising Events, Contributions and Grants – 22%
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.
YEAR ESTABLISHED: 1971 EMPLOYEES: 22 ANNUAL REVENUE: About $1,000,000
RMCC serves 24 towns within Rockingham County including: Brentwood, Deerfield, East Kingston, Epping, Exeter, Fremont, Greenland, Hampton, Hampton Falls, Kensington, Kingston, New Castle, Newfields, Newington, Newmarket, North Hampton, Northwood, Nottingham, Portsmouth, Raymond, Rye, Seabrook, South Hampton and Stratham.

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.
We love our volunteers! One of the best ways to support our mission is by serving as an 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. Ongoing volunteer opportunities include positions on our Board and/ or one of our standing committees. We rely on the expertise of business men and women to offer pro bono work in areas of design, finance and HR. Short-term volunteer opportunities are available each year through our fundraising events, spring/fall clean-up projects or various administrative projects.
