Help SCI Raise $1625 by Friday night!

The last Chelsea #WalkWednesday of the season included some zumba dancing!

Want an easy way to strengthen local communities before a relaxing 4th of July weekend? Donate today to help SCI reach our $5,000 fundraising goal before our June 30 budget year ends! We have just $1,625 to go--maybe even less by the time you read this blog post!

You can go on vacation after you donate to SCI. You can even donate to SCI while you are on vacation! Our SCI team will find some vacation time over the summer but we will be very busy here getting ready for the fall.

During the summer, we will be working on filling our remaining AmeriCorps positions. If you know someone who might be interested in a year of SCI AmeriCorps service, please share this link so they can learn more and apply.

SCI’s AmeriCorps program is supported by a federal grant that requires a dollar-for-dollar private match. Every dollar you donate to SCI helps leverage one dollar of federal funding to support AmeriCorps members serving our communities.Read more

Connect for Healthy Communities Goal Reached!

Update: We did it! We set out on June 30 to raise the final $804 needed to meet our fiscal year-end fundriaising goal. Thanks the quick and generous response of our supporters, we raised $825 in the final day of our fiscal year and met our goal! With the final day donations added in, we raised over $20,000 in the home stretch of our fiscal year, which puts us in strong position as we start the new year. Below we've kept the original "final day" message as it provides a sense of our progress and current priorities.

We are getting very close to our Connect for Healthy Communities campaign goal. Last week we sent an email to our supporter list seeking to raise $1,438 that will be matched by SCI board members and in order to get us to our goal. Now we are down to $804 to raise before our fiscal year ends at midnight tonight (June 30). I hope you will consider helping us reach our goal by making a donation today!Read more

Goal reached, thank you!

I'm happy to report that we have reached the fundraising goal for the campaign we launched yesterday to raise funds to feed our AmeriCorps members during their inital training this month. Thanks to the quick and generous support, we will be able to provide lunch during their orientation and show them we appreciate their commitment to a year of service! If you are still interested in donating to this campaign, additional contributions will be applied to supporting the members during their monthly in-service trainings.

Help welcome and feed our new SCI AmeriCorps members!

As a former AmeriCorps member, I can tell you from experience that the start of AmeriCorps service is an exciting but financially daunting time. As a group, these AmeriCorps members will commit over 34,000 hours of service in our communities. The AmeriCorps stipend is a modest living allowance of about $1100 per month (before taxes). We thought, what better way to welcome them to the SCI family than to offer them meals during their trainings.
