The gift is in the giving


his year marks the first time my name appears in one of the listings in our Charitable Giving Guide. Last fall, I was invited to join the board of Make-A-Wish New Hampshire, along with new recruits Ted Kitchens, director of the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport; and Scott MacKnight, CEO and president of Triangle Credit Union. While we didn’t know it at the time, the three of us were destined to join the board after we were invited to sit at Make-AWish CEO Julie Baron’s table at the nonprofit’s annual fundraiser in May. On my way out of the DoubleTree hotel in Manchester that day, I received a call from Ernesto Burden, the publisher of Yankee Publishing’s New Hampshire Group, where I had applied for an editing job. And here we are. Six months into this new gig, I can’t help but marvel at life’s serendipity, and the connections we make along the way that enrich our lives. During my tenure at the New Hampshire Union Leader, I wrote stories about Make-A-Wish and had developed a deeper appreciation for its mission, especially after meeting a brave 9-year-old girl from Laconia who wanted to visit Hawaii so she could swim with dolphins. As I review the other nonprofits whose profiles are included in this issue, I think about how many lives they’ve touched, including my own. As a kid growing up in Manchester, I played flag football at Granite YMCA and spent a week canoeing in the Squam Lakes through the Boy Scouts of America Daniel Webster Council.

The nonprofits profiled on these pages provide health care, housing, mentoring and other essential services to children, families and seniors. They enrich our lives with the arts. They offer recovery services to people struggling with addiction. Whatever their mission, they all make New Hampshire a better place to live. We hope they inspire you to lend a hand through financial support, in-kind services or volunteer work. While the nonprofits will surely be grateful, you’ll find the greater gift is in the giving.

New Hampshire for all is a New Hampshire where every person can thrive. Achieving that ideal will make New Hampshire better for everyone — and it will take all of us to make it happen. New Hampshire’s nonprofit sector plays an oversized role in making New Hampshire a place where everyone can thrive. Nonprofits are making sure food pantries are well stocked, bringing the arts to far-flung locations, ensuring that families have a secure roof over their heads, building a sense of belonging with new neighbors, diligently reporting the news of the day, making the outdoors accessible to all — and more. Nonprofits are doing all of this every day, without fail. Their work makes the New Hampshire community healthier, more connected and more prosperous. We all have roles to play in building a New Hampshire for all. One critical role is giving to support the work of nonprofits. If you have $10 to give or $10,000, look through this Charitable Giving Guide, and look around the place where you live. You will not have to look far to see the impact of nonprofits and the impact of your giving. And it’s important to remember that nonprofits need support year-round. Keeping the doors open, the heat and electricity on and staff in place is mission-critical in all seasons. And despite giving trending downward nationally in 2021 and 2022, community need has not decreased. We ask nonprofits to do consistent and essential work that benefits all of us. They need our support in return. Please give generously to help make this community we love a community where every person can thrive.

ay in and day out, New Hampshire’s nonprofit organizations have continued to show up for the individuals and communities in New Hampshire that are most in need of their support. In the Granite State, we are kind, hardworking, and care about our neighbors, and no one embodies these traits better than our vibrant nonprofit community. As a local, nonprofit health insurance plan, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care’s mission goes beyond just providing insurance coverage. It centers around building healthy communities, and it’s engrained into the heart and soul of our organization, our employees and all that we do. Through our parent company, Point32Health, and our Foundation, in 2022 we’ve provided approximately $1.1 million to community organizations throughout New Hampshire. These investments supported local community organizations and nonprofits across our state, reaching into our most rural communities, who often face greater economic instability, geographic isolation, generational poverty, and less access to medical, dental and mental health care. We live, we work and play here, and will continue to have a vested interest in making sure communities throughout New Hampshire are healthier. For all of us at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, helping to support the health and well-being of our members and our communities is at the core of our organization. And as your neighbors, we have a vested interest in ensuring that communities, businesses, nonprofits and individuals throughout New Hampshire are empowered to live healthier lives. We believe we can have the highest impact on our communities by working together. Harvard Pilgrim is proud to be your trusted local partner in New Hampshire, and helping our nonprofit partners navigate health insurance benefits so that you can keep focus on impacting positive change in communities throughout the Granite State. Join us in celebrating “This way to better health.”

ife continues to be a whirlwind. In so many ways and on countless topics, communities are at odds. Most of us agree on the importance of kindness to animals and helping homeless, abused and neglected pets. We are grateful to serve and help all people who are kind to animals, and we have been succeeding in that mission for nearly 124 years. Since our founding in 1900, New Hampshire Humane Society has rescued more than 100,000 pets. We reunite families with lost pets, bring love to families when they decide to adopt, and provide pet supplies, resources and care to the pets of families experiencing hardship. Every loving pet deserves a loving home and family, and I believe every loving family deserves a pet. Our community programs embody our philosophy of kindness and compassion. The Senior Project finds homes for senior pets and finds loving pet companions for senior citizens. Telling Tails, our reading program, focuses on improving youth reading skills and provides social time for shelter pets. Dog for a Day offers brief, fun outings for our canine residents with volunteers who want to share some love. Our Pet Transport Program prevents euthanasia by rescuing pets from overpopulated shelters. And our pet clinic, MY BEST FRIEND, offers affordable pet care and is our way of bridging the gap in veterinary access. Find more at www.nhhumane. org/BestFriend. I hope you will join us each January for our new SECOND CHANCES CASINO event. We’d also love to see you on May 6, 2024, for our annual COMPASSION Golf Tournament at Laconia Country Club, and on September 21, 2024, for our annual BE A HERO 5K run/walk at Castle in the Clouds. Sponsors and attendees make our lifesaving work possible. Our programs and services save lives and bring more love to pets and families. To volunteer, email programs@nhhumane.org. For sponsorship and donor opportunities, email Kendra@nhhumane.org. To learn about our philosophy of kindness and to see the work first-hand, contact me at charles@nhhumane.org. I would love to share more with you about this important mission and how you can be part of this lifesaving work. We are here to save the lives of pets that need to be rescued. Many come to us having been abandoned, neglected and abused. We provide necessary care and get them to loving homes. Working with our 18 municipal partners, New Hampshire Humane Society is the primary animal welfare organization serving more than 400,000 citizens of our great state. Please consider a donation to save the lives of homeless, defenseless pets. Thank you for making this lifesaving mission possible by supporting New Hampshire Humane Society. We can only do it with your help. On behalf of the pets you help save, we are grateful.

BUSINESS GIVING TIPS – FOR BUSINESSES OF ALL SIZES Placing giving and volunteering at the center of your organizational culture and identity is not only great for communities and the people in them — it also helps recruit, engage and retain great employees. By Melinda Mosier, Vice President of Donor Engagement and Philanthropy Services, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation


onprofit organizations help make New Hampshire a great place to live, work and play. Nonprofits do everything from protecting our natural resources to welcoming new neighbors to making the arts available to all. Businesses, large and small, have always played an important role in strengthening and sustaining the New Hampshire community — in part, through their support of our critical nonprofit sector. Placing giving and volunteering at the center of your organizational culture and identity is not only great for communities and the people in them — it also helps recruit, engage and retain great employees. Research shows people want to work for companies that put generosity and community care at the center of their cultures. A recent Gallup survey showed that employees who believe that the organization they work for makes a positive impact on people and the planet are twice as likely to be engaged in their work. And when employees are engaged, all kinds of measures of success skyrocket — from retention to productivity to profitability. People want to work for employers who are invested in (and known for) making the communities where they work better for all.

Systems Engineering also sponsored the Day of Caring, and staff worked on projects at Manchester Community Resource Center, including cleaning and repairs. COURTESY PHOTO.

“A recent Gallup survey

showed that employees who believe that the organization they work for makes a positive impact on people and the planet are twice as likely to be engaged in their work.

At the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, we are working to help make New Hampshire a more just, sustainable and vibrant community where everyone can thrive. We work with many businesses that make generosity a centerpiece of their organizational culture, and we help to connect them with pressing community needs and high-impact giving opportunities. Some businesses have established models of giving that are traditional, some innovative — all of which can serve as an idea lab for others.

Here are just a few ideas for putting giving at the center of your organizational culture — no matter how large or small your business: STATE YOUR CHARITABLE MISSION. Your business has a

mission and values. But creating a charitable mission statement that is in alignment with your mission and values can be an important first step in organizing your giving and sorting through requests. It can be as simple as: “We care about people and the planet. So we give to support efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change and to promote inclusivity and belonging in our communities.”


Foundation, we work with a number of businesses that have created philanthropic funds and then invited employees from all levels of the organization to advise giving decisions. Employees have the opportunity to learn about nonprofits and community need and engage in a meaningful way to put their company’s philanthropic values into action. One company has created a matching payroll-deduction program for its philanthropic fund, and a rotating committee of team members makes giving decisions for the year.


employees an annual match for their charitable giving is an effective way to encourage giving and increase giving power. You can offer a match up to a certain amount or percentage to nonprofits employees choose, or you can

do a company-wide “crowd-sourced” gift to a single nonprofit — increasing the size and impact of the donation and building a shared sense of purpose. (And please consider giving general operating support, rather than directing donations to a specific project to ensure nonprofits have working capital to make the greatest impact.) GIVE THE GIFT OF CARING. To mark milestones, including

retirements, consider a gift to a nonprofit that exemplifies a team member’s talent and passion.

PAY PEOPLE TO VOLUNTEER. Volunteering helps people

feel connected to the wider community and to their team. Most people would like to volunteer, but the combined demands of work, family and home can make it a challenge. You can offer a day or more of paid volunteer hours, and/or organize team volunteering opportunities. The United Way’s Day of Caring offers options in every region of the state where teams large and small can pitch in for a day to help nonprofits.


chapters provide everything you need to launch and run a United Way campaign at work. United Way works by payroll deduction and is a familiar and time-tested way for people to “give at the office,” either as a standalone or in combination with other giving opportunities.

To learn more, please contact Melinda Mosier, Vice President of Donor Engagement and Philanthropy Services, at melinda.mosier@nhcf.org or 603-225-6641 ext. 266.

As New Hampshire’s second largest homeless shelter, our goal is to continue our proven formula of success in helping people to find housing and reclaim their place in our community. Every day we address the evolving demographic of the homeless population and the needs they present as the housing crisis continues to escalate. Homelessness is a complex, lifethreatening issue — one we cannot solve alone. The support we receive is so inspiring and gives us the drive to look toward the future for ways we can continue to build a thriving community together. For 2024, we look to achieve an annual fund goal of $1,983,000.

Fundraising Events:

We hold several events throughout the year to engage the community in support of CRH. These include multiple benefit concerts at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club in Portsmouth, our annual Benefit by the Sea gala in May at Wentworth by the Sea and various smaller local partner events across the region. Sign up to receive our newsletters, follow us on social or our website for more information.

Giving Opportunities:

CRH is funded primarily through individual and corporate donations, fundraising events and grants. Financial donations help us to meet the immediate needs of our residents. You can make a single annual gift or join The Neighborhood, our recently launched program for monthly recurring gifts — a great way to provide impact all year long. In-kind donations are equally appreciated, providing food for the shelter, as well as the new clothing and personal care items that help make our residents feel safe and respected.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers are an integral part of our success at CRH. We welcome members of the community individually or in groups to help with landscaping and cleaning projects; preparing, cooking and serving meals; sharing a professional skill with our residents or staff; or even offering new ways to help. Every day, volunteers can have a positive impact on our residents and underscore the work we all do. To learn more, visit crossroadshouse.org/volunteer.

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains 2024 Goals:

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.

Before she’s space-walking, using her voice for change, conquering that Grand Slam or winning Grammys, she’s a Girl Scout. Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains prepares her for a lifetime of leadership — from lobbying the city council with her troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running her own cookie business today to tackling cybersecurity tomorrow. Girl Scouts is a place where she’ll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions, and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up and try again. We will continue to widen our reach by ensuring that the benefits of Girl Scouts are available to all through financial assistance, programs run in partnership with community organizations and after-school programs, and expanding our online programs. Girl Scouts takes her potential, combines it with robust skill-building programming, and adds caring adult mentors and strong female role models to build girls who make the world a better place.

Spaulding Academy & Family Services 2024 Goals:

For more than 150 years, Spaulding Academy & Family Services has supported children with special needs and their families. As 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, we continually work toward delivering high-quality care and a culture based on kindness. We plan to advance our services and staff opportunities in the year ahead.

Mission Statement:

Fundraising Events:

Supporting exceptional children and families toward a successful future.

In addition to participating in Giving Tuesday and NH Gives, Spaulding Academy & Family Services actively identifies ways to connect with individuals and companies who wish to support the children and families we serve. For example, Spaulding Academy & Family Services recently unveiled one of the largest adaptive playgrounds in New England, which was made possible in part by successful fundraising efforts. In 2024, fundraising efforts will be focused on the construction of a new adaptive treehouse and outdoor amphitheater. This initiative seeks to enrich the well-rounded development of our children by offering enhanced opportunities for both physical and mental growth.

Top Funding Sources:

Funding is primarily provided from referring school districts; NH Division for Children, Youth & Families; the New Hampshire Department of Education; Medicaid; and counterpart agencies in other states. Private donations and grants from individuals, foundations and community organizations help fund activities, projects and programs that directly benefit the children in our care, which are not afforded through public funding.

Giving Opportunities:

As public funding covers 90% of essential living, clinical and educational expenses, every dollar donated to Spaulding Academy & Family Services has a profound impact on each child we serve. 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 welcome opportunities to design custom packages to support professional or personal giving goals. In addition, our website includes the ability to donate securely and conveniently online.


ANNUAL REVENUE: $30,000,000

Service Locations:

Located on more than 500 acres in Northfield, NH, our scenic hilltop campus offers a safe, supportive and intensely therapeutic environment for children from across the state and beyond. In addition to campus programming, Spaulding’s community-based programs include a variety of services provided to children and their families where they are needed most.


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 the Spaulding Academy & Family Services campus and in our community. We welcome discussions about your ideas and personal interests to develop a custom opportunity that achieves your personal or professional 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.

Hope on Haven Hill 2024 Goals:

Hope on Haven Hill provides substance use disorders programs and services for pregnant, post-partum, and parenting women and their children. Established in 2015, our services have grown to include: • Residential recovery treatment at Hope on Haven Hill • Abi’s Place Recovery Housing • Intensive outpatient (IOP) groups • Individual outpatient substance-use disorders (SUD) counseling • Individual case management • Mental health therapy services • Referrals to other programs and services • Camilla’s Place affordable rental housing • Wellness, life skills, parenting and other programs

Mission Statement:

Hope on Haven Hill’s mission is to support recovery and nurture the health and well-being of pregnant and parenting women with substance use disorder and their children by ensuring access to quality treatment and services.

As one of only two residential substance use disorders treatment agencies in the state that serves pregnant and post-partum women and their children, our service area includes the entire state. Nearly all of the women seeking SUD treatment services at HHH are pregnant or parenting, and homeless or imminently homeless. Many have had little to no prenatal care and need connection to basic health care. Moving forward, HHH will continue to provide its critical services to this very vulnerable population, while exploring opportunities to expand access to additional treatment and access to affordable housing, both key in maintaining long-term recovery.

Top Funding Sources:

Funding for the services at Hope on Haven Hill is received from a variety of public and private sources. Nearly 70% of our funding comes from a combination of federal and state grants and contracts and insurance reimbursements. Private philanthropy accounts for the additional 30% of our funding and is critical in allowing us to assist hundreds of women and their children annually.

Fundraising Events:

Hope on Haven Hill hosts the annual Hope Springs Eternal Fundraising Gala in March each year. More information about 2024 Gala sponsorship opportunities, tickets and other ways to support, can be found online at www.hopeonhavenhill.org/support-us/ hhh-gala.

All donors are personally acknowledged and listed in our annual report.
