A Home of Our Own

OUR VISION

A Home Of Our Own capital campaign allows Wellesley A Better Chance to own its own future. For over 40 years, the generosity of Wellesley College has afforded our scholars housing. We are ready to grow our own roots. Our vision is to purchase a home in Wellesley that will allow Wellesley A Better Chance to grow our program and meet the needs of scholars for years to come.

OUR GOAL: $1.2 MILLION

A Home Of Our Own - that is the goal of our campaign. Our inspired and energized board and community members believe in our mission and the good that comes from our work. A Home Of Our Own funds will allow us to:

  • Purchase a home in Wellesley that fits the needs of our ABC family of scholars, a resident director, and a resident tutor

  • Make necessary improvements to the home prior to the move-in date

  • Furnish our new home with gently used furniture, equipment, and their needed accessories

​Move in! What a happy and proud day it will be when we move into our new home by July of 2021

AN OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME

With your support, we can change the life trajectory of our scholars for years to come.

 

In appreciation of your generosity, a selection of donor recognition opportunities are available at a wide range of giving levels. Gifts may be offered in memory or in recognition of a special person.

 

To further support our campaign, we ask our supporters to look into corporate matching opportunities in your place of work.

"I am reminded of how big Wellesley ABC allowed me to dream. Better yet, the program allowed me to raise my expectations. Expectations of what sort of woman I could/should become and what sort of life I was DESERVING of living. Gosh, it just makes me so thankful!"
