Together, We Can Make a World of Difference

The individuals and families Open Sky serves are enjoying tremendous successes thanks to community support – your support! 

There are many ways to show your support for Open Sky. Whether you donate your time, talents or financial resources, you’ll be helping the people we serve live their best lives. We can assist you to make a one-time donation, discuss a planned or memorial gift, or share information about our holiday giving program. 

And most importantly, on behalf of the hundreds of children, adults and families we serve each year, thank you for considering a donation of any kind and amount to Open Sky.



Your single or monthly donation to benefit Open Sky has the power to give the individuals and families we serve the resources they need to achieve their hopes and dreams. Your online, check, cash, vehicle or in-kind contribution is an investment in their future. 

Don’t forget to check if your or your spouse’s company offers a Matching Gifts program which will increase the value of your gift!

Open Sky is a qualified 501(c)3 non-profit tax-exempt charitable organization. For questions about making a donation, please contact Karen Goldenberg in the Advancement Office of Open Sky at karen.goldenberg@alternativesnet.org or (508) 266-6544.

Planned Gifts and Bequests

Holiday Gifts

The holiday season is the perfect time to show those around you how much you care. For many of us, we come together as families and friends to celebrate. And as we share warm dinners, we also exchange gifts. Yet, there are those who do not have any of this for the holidays; no family or friends and not one gift to open. But you can change that.

Open Sky we want to make sure that each of the individuals we serve will receive at least one holiday gift. To make sure that happens, we ask you to consider making a donation to our Holiday Gift Card Drive. By donating one or more $25 gift cards, you will be making sure that everyone can share in the Season of Joy. 

To find out more about how you, your company, club, organization or circle of friends can participate in the Holiday Gift Card Drive, please contact Susan McKechnie in the Advancement Office at susan.mckechnie@alternativesnet.org or (508) 266-6541.
