Here they are: The New England GiveCamp 2015 charities!
Catching Joy: A longtime GiveCamp charity and backbone supporter of the Coding for Charity cause. Catching Joy promotes acts of kindness and volunteerism beginning with young children and their families.
Press Pass TV: Press Pass TV (PPTV) harnesses the power of media and video production to provide meaningful education, technical training, employment, and hope for youth living in low-income neighborhoods. It offers creative outlets as an alternative to violence, while teaching life-sustaining skills and empowering youth and their communities with the resilience to succeed and thrive in life.
This Star Won’t Go Out: This Star Won’t Go Out is making a difference in the lives of children with cancer, one family at a time. By providing funds to help pay for travel, a mortgage or rent check, and other cost of living expenses, TSWGO frees up families to focus on their child who is in treatment. A gift of money is really a gift towards quality time as a family—and that’s a gift that is beyond value.
Science Club for Girls: Our mission is to “foster excitement, confidence, and literacy in STEM for girls, particularly from under-represented communities, by providing free, experiential programs and by maximizing meaningful interactions with women mentors in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.”
Boston Volunteers: Our ambition is to make helping people easier for you. We celebrate 30-40 volunteer events in Boston every month, often in your neighborhood.
WriteBoston: WriteBoston is dedicated to improving the writing skills of young people. We build teacher capacity to use writing to support student learning across all content areas and create opportunities for students to engage in the writing process.
Mystic River Watershed Association: The Mystic River Watershed Association’s mission is to protect and restore the Mystic River, its tributaries and watershed lands for the benefit of present and future generations and to celebrate the value, importance and great beauty of these natural resources.
James Foley Foundation: James Foley was murdered by ISIS in Syria on August 19th 2014. His life challenges us all to love and forgive one another, and to make this world a better place. The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation honors what Jim stood for by focusing on 3 areas he was passionate about: hostage support, conflict reporting and youth education.
Bird Street Community Center: Bird Street is a small organization with a huge impact. An oasis from the raging storm of growing up in poverty, Bird Street provides academic support, outlets for creative expression, opportunities for personal growth, and job readiness training for young people from kindergarten to age 22 (age appropriately, of course).
Waltham Philharmonic Orchestra: The Waltham Philharmonic Orchestra is the Waltham place to play and to hear great classical music. We provide opportunities for area musicians with a range of ages and abilities to perform together. The Orchestra builds a community tradition by reaching out to young people, nurturing local talent, and providing fun, inspiring musical events for the whole family.
Vital Pathways: Vital Pathways was formed in 1994 when Houlton was selected as one of five sites in the state of Maine to be designated as a “Healthy Community”. We have a broad definition of health which goes beyond the “medical model” to include education, environment, technological and economic development, and recreation. Vital Pathways is based in Houlton and serves eleven towns in Aroostook County, located in northern Maine.
EachOneTeachOne: Training and empowering girls, women and communities for a future in technology. With years of experience, a tested, proven model, and long-standing partnerships with educational and community partners, EachOneTeachOne is uniquely positioned to contribute to closing the gap between the supply of technically skilled workers and the demands of a digital economy.
We’re glad to serve all of these worthy causes. Coding For Charity is just over a day away!
