Help SCI Raise $1625 by Friday night!

The last Chelsea #WalkWednesday of the season included some zumba dancing!

Want an easy way to strengthen local communities before a relaxing 4th of July weekend? Donate today to help SCI reach our $5,000 fundraising goal before our June 30 budget year ends! We have just $1,625 to go--maybe even less by the time you read this blog post!

You can go on vacation after you donate to SCI. You can even donate to SCI while you are on vacation! Our SCI team will find some vacation time over the summer but we will be very busy here getting ready for the fall.

During the summer, we will be working on filling our remaining AmeriCorps positions. If you know someone who might be interested in a year of SCI AmeriCorps service, please share this link so they can learn more and apply.

SCI’s AmeriCorps program is supported by a federal grant that requires a dollar-for-dollar private match. Every dollar you donate to SCI helps leverage one dollar of federal funding to support AmeriCorps members serving our communities.

Summer is a great time to enjoy outdoor community events which help bring diverse residents together. Thousands of residents in 10 Massachusetts communities rely on SCI community web portals, not only to find local events but also to help organizations find volunteers. This includes our newest SCI portal, implemented in partnership with Salem Public Schools to help families connect with all the resources they need for their children to succeed. Let me know if something like this might be needed in your community!

SCI operates with a lean professional staff of 5 along with 25 full-time AmeriCorps members. We leverage community partnerships and volunteers to serve 20 communities and engage tens of thousands in local civic life. Your donation today will go a long way in making a difference!

Thanks for your interest and consideration. Best wishes for a safe and wonderful summer!

p.s. Reading this after June 30? No worries! Make a donation today and you can help us get our new budget year off to a great start!
