Please do not send items you wish to donate to a Grand Circle Foundation site to our Boston office. The Foundation does not have a shipping budget to send these items to their intended recipient. In addition, we discourage you from sending donated items directly to these international sites because the schools and organizations we support do not have the means to pay for customs duties and transportation to collect the items.
Prior to your trip, if you wish, you may choose to bring along a few items for the school or community visit, such as pencils, chalk, or other school or sports supplies. Your pre-trip Travel Handbook will outline the types of items needed or requested. After you’ve returned from your trip, if you’d like to make a donation to a school or organization you visited that’s supported by Grand Circle Foundation, we can only accept donations by check.
