A financial back bone supporting Hopkinton residents in need.

Spread the spirit of giving! 

The HEF relies on Donations to help residents in need

Many people in our Town are able to weather emergencies by dipping into financial reserves but some residents are not so fortunate. The HEF helps with financial assistance to meet basic  needs in the short-term; pay the rent to avoid eviction, obtain medicine, repair a car and more. To date, the Fund has provided over $64,000 in grants.  Your donation will help ensure the Fund can continue to provide support in an emergency.

Client Stories and Testimonials

"Today I was able to pick up my car this morning and it was all thanks to the generosity and kindness of community. Thank you so much for all you do each day and for the Hopkinton Emergency Fund's magnificent support. Because of all of you I did not have  to default on my bills while saving towards the bill I had to pay for the repair costs of my car which has been a life line for myself and my kids. I would not have been able to come up with the money that the fund so graciously donated to help off set the car. I truly feel the support of the community. my kids and I are very fortunate to be in a town that cares for its residents and to come together in time of need. I hope one day I can give back to the HEF and the office of youth/services that supported me tremendously! I am looking forward to getting back on track and back to my families routine."

Change the world one child at a time, they are the future!"

"Recently my car broke down and I did not have the money to fix it.  It is an older car and it needed a rebuilt engine and a water pump.  I am 60 years old and my health is not so good. My car is what gets me to and from my dialysis appointments...."
