If you can help us with a financial contribution, it would be appreciated by us and the neighbors we help. The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is a tax-exempt public charity under the US Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(3).  All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. The federal tax ID number (EIN) for the Concord-Carlisle Conference is 90-0636915.

We are totally funded by private donations from our communities. We are all volunteers so there are no paid staff and 99 percent of your contribution goes to helping neighbors in need.

We help between 50 and 75 families each year and in 2021 disbursed more than $50,000 in aid to neighbors in crisis, including food, gift cards, holiday meals, rental assistance, payment of heating bills, auto repair, etc. In addition, we often coordinate with other agencies in town – Concord Community Services, Hugh Cargill Trust, Open Table, Council on Aging, etc. – to assure that the family can access the resources they need.

Some may believe that the towns of Concord and Carlisle would not have neighbors in need but sadly that is not the case. It only takes one incident or life change to very quickly put an individual or family in crises, such as:

  • Losing a job;
  • Inability to pay for car repair affecting ability to work;
  • Domestic violence survivors trying to get back on their feet;
  • A sudden death or a family’s primary caregiver;
  • Illnesses adding to financial drain.

Cardinal Sean is asking parishioners in the Boston Archdiocese to be ready and willing to assist in addressing “a major humanitarian and societal crisis” that is looming on our home front. SVdP is responding to the Cardinal’s request for donations of winter clothing and other necessities to support the immigrants arriving daily in Massachusetts.
