Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have tog a hold of for the moment, and I want to make burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations
— George Bernard Shaw


Through our Wheel of Life program or a bequest to the Social Centers, you can make the torch burn for future generations. Through the Wheel of Life, you can make a donation to honor a loved one’s death or special occasion.

When you make a donation to the Wheel of Life program, an acknowledgement will be sent to the person honored or their family. This special gift allows your loved one’s legacy to improve the lives of many others.

To make a donation to the Wheel of Life Program online, click here, or simply send the name of the person in whose name you are donating, and a check made payable to East Boston Social Centers. Your gift is also tax deductible.

Additionally, you can choose to name East Boston Social Centers in your will or as the beneficiary of a life insurance or retirement plan. Of course, any bequests should first be discussed with your family and estate planner. Please contact Development Director Marisa Di Pietro at 617-569-3221 ext. 107 if you would like to contribute to the Social Centers.
