BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Over the past 15 months, we’ve all heard and thought about heroes – most notably nurses, doctors, first responders, teachers, delivery people… the people who took care of us and helped us get through our everyday lives in this pandemic world. During this time, the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest has seen truly heroic work and action from our own set of heroes – the human service organizations we fund, local business owners, our generous donors, and our volunteers.
Dedicated to fulfilling their missions and serving people in our community in need, our local nonprofit organizations provided even more services this year than in years past with fewer financial and volunteer resources. Local business owners – many who received grants from the Concord Together Business Fund – had to change the way they ran their businesses just to survive. Our staff and volunteers brought endless energy and dedication to their work, while adapting to virtual meetings and having to work from home or help their kids with remote schooling. And in a year of economic hardship and uncertainty for so many, our loyal donors – YOU – continued to support our mission of collective impact with passion and generosity and allowed us to support our community with a total of $511,805.
We saw heroism everywhere in our community and could not be more proud or more grateful. And while this year was unlike any other in the Community Chest’s nearly 75-year history, the dedication to helping neighbors in need remains unchanged and reminds us of all that makes our towns so special.
Ali Sullivan, Board President 2020-2021
