Can you tell me more about the mission of CCB Foundation?
The overall mission of the foundation is to assist in filling the gaps in the treatment and recovery process and to help expand treatment and recovery programs and services. This assistance can take many forms, for example:
- expanding recovery program services such as providing technology resources to assist in vocational training and job searches;
- funding transportation services so clients can attend offsite meetings, events, interviews, and activities;
- supporting substance-free recreational activities and programs
Can you tell me what you plan to do with future funds that you raise?
Our mission is to expand the resources that are available to those seeking treatment and support during their recovery. There are so many gaps in the treatment train; from the initial stages of treatment to after care programs once released from a residential program. Addiction is a lifelong chronic disease. There is no cure. We will continue to meet with recovery and treatment program centers, meet with experienced people in the field, as well as other fundraising organizations to collaborate and see where your donations and our efforts are most needed. Through an outreach effort, we have begun to identify local (Massachusetts-based) programs and identify specific needs. While it is difficult to predict specific programs that will be funded in the future, it is certain that any grant made will be consistent with our mission and goals. If you keep checking our website, we will be providing updates on where funding has been provided. Also, bear in mind that CCB Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. We have no paid staff and no office facilities, and so virtually 100% of donations go directly to outside programs.
What is your process for choosing what to do with funds that you raise?
Through our outreach efforts we identify, meet with, and vet qualifying programs and ascertain their specific funding needs. These needs are brought to our Board and are prioritized based on need, funding amounts required, and alignment with the CCB Foundation’s mission and goals. Once money is awarded, we continue to monitor how the funds are used to ensure that the funding is spent consistent with the intended purpose.
What's the best way to donate?
