Abby’s House joins Giving Common!

Abby’s House was one of the first 300 non-profits – and the only one in Worcester! – to join the Giving Common, a new initiative of the Boston Foundation. The Giving Common is a database of in-depth organizational profiles that can be searched across 175 fields of data. It’s designed to provide donors, funders, and the general public with the data they need to make informed giving decisions and gives non-profits a chance to tell their story directly to potential donors
and to the community. You can view the Abby’s House
