In-kind gifts acceptance policy

Non-monetary in-kind gifts are appreciated and accepted; however we ask that you first contact the development office to be sure there is a current need for the item you are thinking about donating. During busier times of the year, such as around the holidays, we ask that you consider making a monetary donation or in lieu of an in-kind gift, purchasing gift cards for retail stores in the Boston area. Gift cards will be given directly to patient families so they may make needed purchases on their own. Please contact Ashley Loveless at 617-371-4941 or via email to find out if we are currently accepting in-kind donations, and to coordinate drop-off times.
