Purchase Needed Items

Children experiencing foster care often have few belongings to call their own. Our adult residents would also benefit from donations of new items. We created an Amazon wishlist where you can purchase items and have them shipped directly to HopeWell.
Please be sure to select “HopeWell” as the shipping address.



Your Legacy Made Simple:

Explore Planned Giving Options

You can make both an immediate and lasting impact by incorporating HopeWell into your long-term philanthropic planning, such as:

Donor advised funds
Life insurance policies
Estate planning — wills or trusts
Bank and investment accounts
Retirement plans and tax-free IRA distributions

Planned gifts can also offer you potential advantages, such as tax benefits. You can obtain a “change of beneficiary” form by contacting your insurer or retirement plan administrator. Forms typically take just a few minutes to complete, yet your gift will provide support and optimism for the children, families, and individuals we support for decades to come.

This information does not constitute legal or financial advice. Because everyone’s situation is different and state laws vary, you should seek the advice of your own attorney, tax advisor, or financial planner.



Donate Stocks & Securities

Donating appreciated stock or securities is an easy and great way to boost HopeWell’s programs while also creating benefits for you by:

Providing a deduction for charitable contributions: Federal and state tax law permits taxpayers who itemize to deduct the current value of charitable contributions from their adjusted gross income. To qualify for such a deduction, the stock must have been held by the taxpayer for more than one year.

Creating savings on capital gains taxes: Contributions of stock may have no tax liability on the difference between the cost of donated stock and its current, fair market value (FMV): i.e., there may not be tax on the capital gains.

For instructions on donating stocks and securities, contact Lisa Crane at lcrane@hopewellinc.org or 617-607-5182.
