The Concord-Carlisle Community Chest supports nonprofit human service organizations through a grant making process and targeted funding. They engage our community through opportunities to donate, volunteer, or participate in community-wide events. They collaborate with their  grant recipients to advance the impact and efficacy of their programs. The Community Chest is here to make our community stronger and a welcoming place for all residents.

Since 1947, the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest has strengthened our community by fundraising and allocating money to a broad range of human service organizations that help Concord and Carlisle residents. Their model allows one single contribution to support many organizations and programs that offer a broad range of community services to young and old alike—family and individual counseling, legal assistance, job retraining, support for domestic violence victims, adult respite care, preschool scholarships, parenting support, substance abuse prevention, adolescent programs, and much more.

In 2019,  The Community Chest  received requests for over $685,000, including asks from six new organizations; executed two very successful community events that brought together over 350 people from the area; produced new promotional material to help build awareness of the Chest; gained four new business event sponsors; and funded a new School Resource Officer for the Concord Middle Schools. Additionally, the Chest is proud to announce that through lots of hard work and dedication, they have created a robust Strategic Plan that is going to guide them for the next four years, through their 75th anniversary in 2023.
