2017 Going the Distance Matching Gift

Support Tenacity and double the impact of your gift!

When you support Tenacity, you are helping narrow the opportunity and achievement gaps for less advantaged Boston students, ensuring they develop the academic and social-emotional skills they need to be college and career ready.

Bill Achtmeyer, our Board of Directors, and our Founder and CEO, Ned Eames have issued a $250,000 donation matching opportunity. As a result, every gift made before May 31, 2017 – up to $250,000 – will be matched dollar for dollar for new donations and increased donations from previous donors.*

Help us “Go the Distance” in support of Boston’s underserved youth while doubling the impact of your gift! Together we can level the playing field and ensure that Boston students have the opportunities and support necessary to reach their dreams and achieve post-secondary success.

*In 2017, first-time contributors and gifts from donors who did not give in 2016 will be matched dollar for dollar. Also this year, the incremental increase in 2017 gifts above their 2016 level will be matched dollar for dollar. The above applies to all gifts including gala and non-gala contributions of all levels.

Tenacity is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization in accordance with the IRS Code. Our EIN number is: 04-3452763.

Stock that has increased in value is a wonderful asset to use for charitable giving. Once it has been held for a minimum of a year, making a gift of securities to Tenacity offers you the chance to help our organization while realizing many important personal benefits.

Why pay taxes if you don’t have to? A charitable gift of stock completely avoids the long-term capital gains tax, allowing the full value of the asset to benefit Tenacity.

For more information on this type of donation opportunity, please contact our Development Department at (617) 562-0900 x 26.
