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.

League School of Greater Boston Will Hold Its 5th Annual 5K Run/1 Mile Walk for Autism on Saturday, April 7th

League School of Greater Boston Will Hold Its 5th Annual

5K Run/1 Mile Walk for Autism on Saturday, April 7th

Proceeds from Race to Once Again Benefit School

Preparations for the League School of Greater Boston’s 5th Annual 5K joint Road Race and Walk on Saturday, April 7th are moving ahead quickly, with 60 runners/walkers already registered and a field of almost two hundred participants expected. Registration the day of the race is $30 – all the money raised will support community engagement activities for students in both our day and residential programs. at League School, which has been providing direction and programs for children on the autism spectrum, ages 3-22, for over 50 years.

 

Once again, the race will be held at the Old Post Elementary School in Walpole and will start at 9:00 (registration opens at 8:00). For anyone interested in cheering participants on, here is a turn-by-turn outline of the race: Beginning at Old Post Rd. School, runners will head north on Old Post Rd. They will take a right onto Squire Court and follow that until it rejoins Old Post again. After a short distance, runners will then take a right onto Grant Avenue. They will then take a left onto MooseHill Road and then take a right when it intersects with Woodland Road. At the end of Woodland, they will take a left onto Pleasant Street and will then turn right, entering Bird Park. After taking a quick tour inside the park, runners will then exit the Park and next turn left on Polley Lane. Next, they will turn left on Pilgrim Way and stay on it and follow it to a left onto Pall Mall Road and follow that until they take a right onto Emerson and finally finish back at the school.

 

As anyone who has ever attended this event in years past will attest, this event is definitely more of a fun-raiser than a fundraiser and all staffers, students, current parents, past parents, families, friends and community members in the Walpole area are encouraged to join us on what promises to be another memorable morning.

 

We want to acknowledge in advance of the race some of the companies who have already graciously committed to assisting us with sponsorships. They include

  • Runner Gift Bag Sponsor: O’lyn Roofing
  • Post-Race Reception Sponsor: Bertucci’s in Norwood;
  • T-Shirt Sponsors: Walpole CoOp, Dedham Savings, Christopher Catanese Children’s Foundation, and Signarama Walpole;
  • Results Board Sponsor: J.M. Electrical;
  • Registration Sponsor: Direct Federal Credit Union;
  • Refreshments Sponsor: Wegmans;
  • Mile Markers: Dempsey Insurance, Jason Roberts Challenger League, and EnviroShield;
  • Water Station Sponsors: Kids in Sports.

 

We are also pleased to announce that 17 people from Brown and Brown Insurance in Dedham have signed up as a team.

 

The family-friendly event will be held, rain or shine, with strollers welcome for both runners and walkers, and considering last year’s race was held in a bit of a monsoon, we believe that the weather for this year’s race will surely be better.

 

Anyone wishing to participate in the race or who would like to volunteer to work on this special event can contact race coordinator, Lindsay Wagner, at the school at 508-850-3900. Hope to see you out either running, walking or cheering on April 7th.
