40th Anniversary Campaign

40th Anniversary Logo

This year, as we celebrate 40 years of neighbors caring for neighbors, we ask you to imagine the community you hope for over the next 40 years. Together, we can achieve the ambitious goals outlined in Thrive2024 and truly mobilize the caring power of community to drive positive lasting change. Thank you for investing in the future of Acton and Boxborough!

Matching Gift, In Memory of Ebit Speers

This past fall, our community lost an inspirational leader, Ebit Speers, former Board President of Acton-Boxborough United Way. Under Ebit’s Board Presidency, Acton-Boxborough United Way undertook the impressive 2015 Community Needs Assessment that remains the gold standard. An update has been started. Her dedication, humor, and amazing set of talents moved our community forward for all to belong and thrive. Ebit’s generous spirit and care for our community lives on.

Two local families stepped forward separately wanting to honor Ebit’s inspiring generosity, love and care for our community. Their combined matching gifts total $25,000 in memory and celebration of Ebit to our 40th Anniversary Campaign. 

Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar as long as funds last.
