Spaulding Academy & Family Services


2021 Goals:

Spaulding Academy & Family Services, formerly Spaulding Youth Center, is a leading provider of educational, residential, therapeutic and foster care programs and services for children and youth with neurological, emotional, behavioral, learning or developmental challenges, including Autism Spectrum Disorder and those who have experienced significant trauma, abuse or neglect. For nearly 150 years, we have supported children with special needs and their families. Our organization continues to pursue excellence throughout our organization, across campus and in our community. This includes delivering high-quality care, treatment and education to our children and families, retaining excellent staff with high performance expectations and attractive career opportunities, and offering a safe, caring and high-functioning culture based on kindness.

Fundraising Events:

Spaulding Academy & Family Services offers a variety of ways to provide support for our kids. In addition to participating in Giving Tuesday, NH Gives, AmazonSmile and other large coordinated fundraising efforts, we are continuously identifying ways to connect with those individuals and companies who would like to learn more about our organization and the children and families we serve. Prior to the pandemic, we launched a summer celebration of Spaulding friends held right on our campus with breathtaking views of the landscape and an insider view of residential life.

Giving Opportunities:

Since public funding covers only 90% of essential living, clinical and educational expenses, every dollar donated to Spaulding Academy & Family Services has profound impacts for each child on campus. Private donation opportunities include unrestricted or restricted gifts, gifts of goods and services, matching gifts, stock, tribute or memorial gifts, and lifetime gift planning. In addition to our event sponsorships, we offer opportunities providing significant benefits and value to philanthropic corporate partners. We welcome opportunities to design custom packages to support your professional or personal giving goals. Our website includes the ability to donate securely and conveniently online.

Volunteer Opportunities:

We cherish volunteers who would like to give the gift of time and service to our children. Volunteer opportunities are abundant both on the Spaulding Academy & Family Services campus and in our community. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your ideas and interests to develop a custom opportunity to meet your professional or personal volunteer goals. Whether you have a personal talent, a community connection, a corporate service day or wish to dedicate time toward charitable activities, we look forward to providing a rewarding volunteer opportunity for you.
