We recognize that we are privileged to be able to earn a good living by working in an expensive real estate market. We also recognize that many are not as fortunate as our clients and need a helping hand due to circumstances beyond their control.
Greater Boston Home Team supports the following local organizations and will make a donation to one of these organizations for each home purchase or sale that we broker for our clients.
We support organizations that are grassroots organizations that seek to make a long term impact on the people they serve. They rely primarily or solely on private contributions and make a significant impact in the communities that they serve and our clients who live in those communities.
COVID 19 has hit many communities very hard, especially those people that are invisible to most of us. If you have a good job, home, and food on your table every day, we ask you to help provide the next meal to those that urgently need our help. Please make a one time or monthly donation at one of the links below. Thanks!

The Giving Group MA (Massachusetts)
The Giving Group MA allows individual donors to pool their small donations together to make a larger contribution to help local organizations receive more significant amounts than they could otherwise contribute as individuals. Most, if not all, of the organizations supported would not receive any support at all without private donations.
- individual donors have committed to donating $100 four times a year
- 100% of the donations are pooled together and contributed to a needy local organization
- members meet (currently online) to nominate local needy organizations that need support
- members then vote to select the organization that will receive all of the money donated that quarter
- quarterly donations can be made automatically by credit card
- our goal is to get to $10,000 per quarter as soon as possible
