Giving Back

We want to take time to thank you for your business, partnership and especially your friendship. We deeply appreciate the trust you have placed in us, in helping you work toward achieving your personal, professional and financial goals. We are grateful, and to this end, we’d like to honor you in some way.

Each year as we reflect on our blessings, we also like to take the time to reflect on those less fortunate. In lieu of sending holiday cards and treats, we choose to make contributions to wonderful charities.

Our donation, on your behalf, supports these world class institutions with research, hands on clinical care, education, and health and wellness programs within our communities. Both are dedicated to ensuring that people get help, and they count on us to ensure that they can continue to provide these services. 

Health Care for the Homeless

Homelessness remains a bewilderingly complex public health challenge that has long thwarted simple solutions. Boston Health Care for the Homeless provides integrated medical, behavioral, and oral health care, as well as preventive services, to more than 11,000 homeless people in greater Boston. They have established a public health framework that is paying dividends globally, toward the elimination of health disparities suffered by this vulnerable population. This year our gift will help support the cost of over the counter medications and supplies for more than 150 homeless men and women.

Joslin Diabetes Center’s mission is to prevent, treat and cure diabetes through its work here in Boston. Their vision is a world free of diabetes and its complications. Diabetes has touched our lives, along with many of your families. A world free of diabetes is achievable in our lifetimes, thanks to the innovation coming from Joslin and its connections around the world.

In 2016, we gave ourselves a challenge to give back, in a bigger way. Lightship committed to participating in continuous 52 weeks of giving, whereby each of us pledged to do something, somehow, someway, to make our community better. To that end, we would like to share a few of the causes we helped.
