Your Support Matters
College Bound Dorchester depends on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundation to support its students in achieving their educational goals. Here are a few ways in which you can make a contribution or get involved.
Make a Financial DONATION
A gift of any amount will be gratefully received and used toward our programs. You can make an unrestricted gift or designate a program to receive your support. Gifts in memory of or tribute to honor a loved one can also be made to support College Bound Dorchester while remembering family and friends.
Run the Boston Marathon
Team College Bound: Dorchester Strong is now accepting applications for runners interested in completing the 118th Boston Marathon on April 21, 2014. Runners will need to raise a minimum of $5,000 and will be fully supported in training and fundraising efforts. For more information or to receive an application, please contact Michelle Caldeira by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our work is significantly enhanced with donations of time and service. Individuals and corporations are welcome to contribute service hours, expertise and professional services. Some examples include résumé preparation and mock interviews with our students, internships for our students and college preparation workshops.
STOCK & MATCHING GIFTS
An outright gift of appreciated securities is a quick and easy way to make a meaningful gift and to receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift. Additionally, many corporations match charitable contributions made by their employees. Make your gift count more by finding out if your company has a matching gift program.
To ensure that college graduation is a real possibility for Dorchester residents today and in the years to come, consider including College Bound Dorchester in your bequest or other estate plans.
We invite you to visit any of our programs. To schedule a visit or discuss your contribution, please contact Michelle Caldeira at 617.506.5947 or email@example.com
We accept donations paid by check or credit card (Visa, Mastercard or American Express). Checks should be made out to College Bound Dorchester.
