Fundraising Update

Thank you to everyone who has shown their support of the BCCA in recent months.

In the past few weeks, we have raised over $4,000 for the Building Fund and we are getting closer to reaching a purchase agreement for the building. With your help, we will continue to strive for our total goal of $100,000, hoping to raise at least half by mid-July.

We are also appreciative of many new volunteers who have come forward to offer their valuable time, energy and experience. To learn more about how you can help contribute to the BCCA, please click here to e-mail Vlad Selsky, BCCA Director of Development, or call him at 617-233-4647.
