Other Ways To Support The Center

While a monetary donation is one way to support the Community Center, we also appreciate any of the following:

Become A Board Member

We are always excited to hear from folks who want to get involved whether they are from the community, have worked with us in the past, or are passionate about the work we do and have a skill or expertise to offer. If any of these descriptions apply to you, please reach out to learn about board membership opportunities. We typically recruit new board members in the late spring prior to the Annual Board Meeting in July.

Thank You To All Our Donors!

We are deeply appreciative of the City of Waltham, DCU For Kids, MetroWest Foundation, Middlesex Savings Bank, the Waltham Cultural Council and Youth and Philanthropy for their generous contributions that make what we do possible.

 

We are also so grateful for our individual donors which account for a significant source of funding to operate our programs. Donations are generally made as one-off events, during “Giving Tuesday” in November, or during our annual fundraiser (was a virtual campaign in FY20 and FY21 due to Covid-19).

Thank You To Our Partners!

The City of Waltham and the Waltham Housing Authority are champions of the Prospect Hill Community Center, and provide the space needed to operate our programs.

 

We are fortunate to have strong partnerships with Bentley University and Brandeis University which dedicate hundreds of university volunteers each year to provide free one-on-one support for our participants. These volunteers contribute thousands of hours of service to help plan and execute our programs. 

 

We have incredible partners doing amazing things in the community. We are so grateful to team up with them to provide free and accessible items and services to residents of Prospect Hill Terrace. A few are listed below:

  • Thank you to Dignity Matters for providing enough feminine hygiene products and sports bras to support all menstruating women in the community.

  • Thank you to Waltham Fields for hosting food drives and other events locally for residents.

  • Thank you to Healthy Waltham for partnering with us to provide fun and exciting educational programming on cooking and nutrition at the after school program and community days over the years.

  • Thank you to Pelmeds Pharmacy in Waltham for their partnership in hosting a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic in June and July at no cost to our organization or residents.
