Anonymous Donor to Match Year-End Gifts

December 10, 2020

Year-end gift to Green Chimneys will now go even farther thanks to the generous support of an anonymous corporate donor. This means all donations to Green Chimneys received by December 31, 2020 will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

Why this year matters most.

Green Chimneys School serves children who faced mental health and developmental challenges well before COVID-19, which means the continuance of their education and clinical support is critical. While their care and connection has always remained our priority, the expenses associated with a range of emergent and technological needs have left us overextended.

There is light.

While some of our students have suffered from social isolation, increased anxiety, and challenges associated with transitioning to/from online learning, virtual therapy, and new safety protocols, students are growing. Since March, students have reached milestones like moving up to high school and graduating twelfth grade. Several students in residential treatment have returned home and are now day students. And we have celebrated others whose growth has readied them to move on from Green Chimneys and go back to their home school districts. (See one recent student celebration in the slideshow below.)

Support children and animals.

With your help, Green Chimneys can maintain the nature-based and therapeutic programs students rely on. Each year-end gift is not only 100% tax deductible, it will go towards the care of our children and animals, and to the development of nature-based programs.

Green Chimneys is truly grateful to you for whatever amount you give as every penny supports the programs and services we provide for our children and families, and the care of our animal partners. Thank you!
