Spaulding Youth Center

2019 Goals:

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. Our primary goal continues to be the pursuit of 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:

Our Signature Breakfast Fundraiser is hosted each October and offers a variety of sponsorship opportunities. Our 2018 event Trauma to Triumph will include a keynote by Dr. Susan Craig, author of “Reaching and Teaching Children Who Hurt”. Children surviving significant trauma, abuse or neglect are haunted by the absence of basic human needs required for healthy psychological development. Join us to learn about how their journey can be one from trauma to triumph and how supporting Spaulding helps children to heal from these beginnings to grow beyond their believed potential toward a successful future. Tickets can be purchased online at

Giving Opportunities:

Since public funding covers only essential living, clinical and educational expenses, every donated dollar can have a profound impact for a child on campus. In addition to our event sponsorships, we also offer additional sponsorship opportunities which provide significant benefits and value to corporate partners. Private donation opportunities include gifts of stock, matching gifts, gifts of goods and services, tribute or memorial gifts and lifetime gift planning. We would welcome the opportunity to design a custom package to support your professional or personal giving goals. Our website includes a list of available sponsorships and offers 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 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.
