What are You Waiting For?
In 2012, we had 2000 walkers and raised $269,000.
We are grateful to all our walkers, who worked very hard to help us reach our goal.
Every walker has a story. Who are you walking for?
Is it a for a loved one you've lost, a friend or child who has attempted suicide, or are you struggling and walking for yourself?
Whatever the reason, AFSP Boston is here to support you.
You are not alone in this journey.

COMPANY MATCHING GIFTS AND MINI GRANTS
Many employers offer mini grants to employees who support and volunteer for a non-profit that is important to them. If your company has a similar program, consider applying for AFSP Boston to receive a grant. We can help you with any information that you may need to complete the application.
Check if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program. Monies that you donate to AFSP can be matched or doubled by very generous companies.
Thanks to employees of Arbella Insurance Foundation, Verizon and Harvard Pilgrim who have already nominated AFSP Boston
for Mini Grants this year.
