2013 BusinessWest Giving Guide

Regional Philanthropic Opportunities

GivingGuideArtWhile philanthropy is a year-round activity, the holidays are a time when many think about those who are in need, and how, in general, they can help make Western Mass. a better community for all who call this region home. To help individuals, groups, and businesses make effective decisions when it comes to philanthropy, BusinessWest presents its annual Giving Guide. On the pages that follow are profiles of 13 area nonprofit organizations, a sampling of this region’s thousands of nonprofits, including groups dedicated to everything from providing early-childhood education to finding homes for stray or unwanted animals; from filling the shelves of area school libraries to creating needed services for area senior citizens. These profiles are intended to educate readers about what these groups are doing, and also to inspire them to provide the support (which comes in many different forms) that these organizations and so many others desperately need.
