Since its founding in 1947, the Community Chest has been a volunteer-driven organization. Without our volunteers, our fundraising, special events, and community work simply would not be possible. Each year, hundreds of individuals give of their time and talents to help make a difference in our towns!
Volunteering with the Community Chest or one of the organizations we support is a wonderful way to enrich the community we love. Here are some ways to help:
We welcome help from students as well! High school or college students may receive community service credit by volunteering at the Community Chest.
Do you know of a local college student who would like to help out the community? The Community Chest has one-time and ongoing projects where we could use their assistance!
Projects may include:

“Volunteering for the Community Chest has helped to shape my opinions about community service, philanthropic priorities and so much more. With a single gift, our donors are able to reach hundreds of individuals right here in Concord and Carlisle who struggle on a daily basis with a broad spectrum of issues. The Chest carefully stewards its resources and subjects every request for funds to a stringent review process. This thoughtful approach provides our donors with the assurance that their gifts are as impactful as possible on a local level. As a past President of the Board, I am thrilled to continue to support the Chest as a donor, an overseer and as a member of two committees. I can’t think of a better way to be supportive of my community and my neighbors in need.”
