By donating to Agassiz Village, you are saying "yes" to helping the nearly 500 underserved children who come to our camp every summer.

The children served by Agassiz Village are from under resourced communities throughout the Northeast and many are homeless or in the foster care system.

At Agassiz, we help them leave the worries of their daily lives behind and have fun while learning the life skills they will need to THRIVE!


Tax-Efficient Giving Options

Donate using your

Donor Advised Fund

• Gifts of Cash: The CARES Act allows taxpayers who take the standard deduction to make up to $300 of charitable contributions to qualified charities. Itemizers can deduct up to 100% of adjusted gross income. As of now, this only applies to 2020.

• Stock or Securities: Make a gift of stock or securities to Agassiz Village and avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of your stock. Please call Lisa Carter, Executive Director, at 781-860-0200 ext.1006 to make your stock gift.

• Individual Retirement Account: If you or a family member are 70½ or older with an individual retirement account (IRA), you can make a tax-free gift to Agassiz Village directly from your IRA. This is called a qualified charitable distribution. Through the SECURE Act you can transfer any amount up to $100,000 per year directly to a qualified charitable organization without paying income tax on the distribution.

• Donor-Advised Funds: Give through your donor-advised fund to maximize your impact. Your fund sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.
