Today, philanthropic support is critical to ensuring our students have the resources needed to reach their full potential
Make Your Difference
As the cost of educating a child with autism continues to skyrocket, we must now look to parents, family members, staff, friends, foundations and corporate partners in an effort to maintain our mission and make sure our students receive the high quality education they deserve.
Charitable support has a direct impact on our students’ lives by filling their immediate needs and ensuring the ongoing availability of the resources they require to continue to grow and prosper.
Whether you make a donation or increase awareness of our work by hosting an event on our behalf, everyone has the opportunity to Make a Difference in the life of a child with autism.
League School of Greater Boston is a recognized 501c3 non-profit organization. Maximize your charitable deduction and deliver immediate benefits by sending a gift made payable to League School or by making a secure gift online by clicking HERE.
If you consider our Monthly Giving Program, you can make a larger commitment by spreading your support out over the course of the year.
Double your impact by checking to see if your employer offers a “charitable match” where they will match the contributions of their employees.
Honoring a loved one through a charitable gift is an especially meaningful way of paying tribute to someone special.
Gifts may commemorate a special event in your family’s, or friends’ lives, such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, or retirements. A tribute gift can also be an appropriate memorial for someone who has passed away.
There are a number of non-traditional ways to make a donation in support of League School as well. Gifting stock or securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits to the donor. Or a planned gift ensures the needed support while simultaneously providing substantial tax savings.
A Gift-In-Kind is a contribution of goods or services that can be used to advance our mission, or can be readily converted to cash and may qualify as a charitable deduction for the person(s) making the gift.
Create a legacy today with a gift that links your name to the very important mission of helping children with autism reach their full potential.
By choosing to name a space at the League School of Greater Boston you are linking your name, or that of a loved one, to innovative and meaningful learning experiences that take place every day. Naming and funding opportunities are available at many levels.
Both fundraising and cultivation events provide League School with opportunities to promote our mission to various constituencies in the community at large, to encourage a social rapport among our families and friends, and to raise significant financial support for our highly specialized programs and services. By hosting an event on our behalf you will be helping extend our network in a manner that is of interest to you.

Funds Will Be Used to Purchase Assistive Technology for the School’s Students
League School of Greater Boston is pleased to announce that it recently received a $20,000 grant from Middlesex Savings Bank that will be allocated for the purchase of assistive technology for the school’s students. Specifically, the monies will be directed towards the purchase of SMART Technology Learning Boards and iPads to be used by our students.
The availability of this technology supports inclusive learning environments and offers alternative ways to process information, express ideas, and demonstrate understanding. It gives teachers the ability to present lessons visually, and provides them with welcome latitude in creating or altering activities to control students’ learning.”
In addition to increased learning and decreased social isolation, there are also physical benefits to this technology. Impaired or delayed motor skills, like the inability to hold a pencil, is common for children with autism. Through touch screen capabilities, students are now able to draw, write, or trace; minimizing their limitations and helping them reach their fullest potential.”
While the implementation of assistive technologies into our programming is not new, availability has limited student access to these devices. Our goal is to ensure that our students have the appropriate access to the assistive technology needed to reach their fullest potential. This grant from Middlesex Savings Bank will enable us to expand the reach of technology to include even more of our students. We cannot thank them enough for honoring us with this grant.
