Frequently Asked Questions

Are there volunteer opportunities outside of the garden?

Office volunteers help in our office—in the Thoreau Birthplace House at 341 Virginia Road, Concord—with mailings, data entry, volunteer scheduling, publicity, and program and event planning.

Do you take physical donations?

Yes. Our most current wishlist can be found on our Ways to Help page.
If you have something specific you would like to donate, please contact our office.

Do you accept other forms of financial support, such as stock?

Gaining Ground accepts marketable securities as a donation, enabling you to make a charitable contribution while adjusting your portfolio and never paying the capital gain on the donated appreciated securities. Please contact our office for more information.

Can our group make a donation to Gaining Ground?

Gaining Ground relies on donations from individuals and groups to support its programs. For example, schools and church groups have generously established fund drives and other efforts to raise money for Gaining Ground.
