From an online donation, to partnering, to attending our fundraising events, every bit helps. Our program is tuition free and we depend solely on fundraising, donations, and grants to make the opportunity available to as many children as possible. In addition to financial contributions, there are many ways to support the Paraclete.

Your Time

Volunteer your time and skills mentoring or tutoring students and helping to repair and maintain the historic Paraclete building, an eighty-eight year old former convent. In addition, we have been fortunate to have volunteers cook dinner, work in our garden, update our database, do landscaping, tidy up community space, and much more. Thank you to all the students, corporate volunteer groups, and individuals who have played a part in the Paraclete community.


We welcome any school supplies, household goods for our teacher residents, technology or computer equipment, and of course…books!

Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies match employees’ contributions to charity. Please check with your human resources department to find out if your company has such a program. If your company does match employee contributions, please mail the appropriate matching gift form with your contribution.

Gift of Appreciated Securities
To make a gift of Appreciated Securities please call 617-268-5552 for transfer instructions. Gifts of appreciated securities can increase your giving power. The IRS allows donors to deduct the full, fair market value of appreciated assets given to the  Paraclete , with no recognition of capital gains. That means that donors can leverage a large donation and charitable deduction using an asset with a small cost basis.
