Boston Nonprofit Fundraising













Boston is the capital and largest city of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The largest city in New England, Boston covers 48 square miles, had an estimated population of 645,966 in 2014; thus, making it the 24th largest city in the United States. The city is the anchor of a substantially larger metropolitan area called Greater Boston, which is home to 4.5 million people and the tenth-largest metropolitan area in the country.  It is the sixth-largest Combined Statistical Area in the United States.

Regional Economy

Boston’s colleges and universities have a significant effect on the regional economy.  Boston attracts more than 350,000 college students from around the world, who contribute more than $4.8 billion annually to the city’s economy.  The area’s schools are major employers and attract industries to the city and surrounding region.  The city is home to a number of technology companies and is a hub for biotechnology.  The Milken Institute rates Boston as the top life sciences cluster in the country. Boston receives the highest amount of annual funding from the National Institutes of Health of all the cities in the United States. Boston MA possesses the reputation of a highly innovative city because of the presence of academia, access to venture capital, and the presence of many high-tech companies.

Other important industries in Boston MA are financial services — especially mutual funds, banks, venture capital firms and insurance companies.  Boston-based Fidelity Investments helped popularize the mutual fund in the 1980s, and thus, Boston possesses the recognition of a top financial city in the United States.    The city is home to three major convention centers and of course the Red Sox baseball team:

Nonprofit Organizations

Of the 30 most economically powerful cities in the world, Boston MA continually ranks on the list.  Encompassing $363 billion, the Greater Boston metropolitan area has the sixth-largest economy in the country and 12th-largest in the world. When it comes to Boston Nonprofit Fundraising, it is rated 14th of 182.  This is great news for Boston Nonprofit Fundraisers; however, skilled fundraisers with lots of experience will certainly provide better results.  Therefore, choose us, we have the expertise and have been involved in Nonprofit Fundraising for decades.

Boston is a commercial, professional sports and cultural hub of the region. Some of the best-known Nonprofit organizations are:

  • Museum of Fine Arts
  • Hebrew Senior Life
  • Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
  • Boston Symphony Orchestra
  • Peabody Essex Museum
  • Massachusetts Audubon Society

Even in the midst of last-minute shopping and getting ready for Christmas, it appears that people will find the time to make their charitable donations.  Thirty-one percent of all annual giving occurs in December, and 12 percent happens in the last three days of the year, according to online nonprofit resources. As a result of analyzing the data, it has been determined that the year-end request for funds brings in 26 percent to 50 percent of annual funds for only 28 percent of the nonprofits.  Again this corroborates the fact that experts are needed for Capital Campaigns and fundraising in general.  We are experts.

Finally, Carlton & Company can help guide Boston nonprofit organizations through a Major Gift or Capital Campaign. Contact us today; we know Boston.
