The heart and soul of the Roxbury Weston Programs mission has always been to provide full access to a high quality education. Education is a right. Every child should have that.

There are many opportunities to make charitable gift donations. Roxbury Weston Programs, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Your tax-deductible donation goes directly to the benefit of the children. Funds are needed always for scholarships and to offset the cost of bus transportation for our Boston children. We also provide teacher development to ensure our children are receiving the very best in early childhood education practices.

Our two major fundraising events during the school year are the Annual Appeal and our Spring Event.

Planned Giving & Bequests. You can invest in the bright future of Roxbury Weston Programs and enjoy the tax benefits of your investment. We deeply appreciate the support of alumni and parents who have included RoxWes in their wills and encourage you to consider this vehicle of giving. The Gene Ritvo Scholarship Fund recognizes those individuals who have the foresight and generosity to include RoxWes in their estate plans. If you would like to discuss providing for RoxWes’ future with a deferred gift, please call Ingrid Mansfield at 781-891-6710.

Corporate Matching Gifts. Many employers offer programs that will match or even multiply an employee’s gift to RoxWes. This is an easy way to dramatically increase the impact of your gift. To do so, simply obtain a matching gift form from your company’s Matching Gift Coordinator (usually in the Human Resources or Community Relations Department), fill it out and send it in with your contribution.

Gifts of Securities. Giving a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds can be to your financial advantage. In most cases you may claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value on the shares and avoid capital gains tax. Please consult your financial advisor to clarify the advantages. If you intend to give a gift of securities, please call (or have your broker call) Ingrid Mansfield at 781-891-6710.
