Philanthropy

As an annual sponsor of Keep Springfield Beautiful we help save Springfield taxpayers thousands upon thousands of dollars – at the same time promoting economic and environmental health in the City that is the hub of the Pioneer Valley.  Keep Springfield Beautiful is Western Massachusetts’ premier nonprofit organization promoting litter and graffiti prevention, recycling, conservation and beautification of Springfield – the go-to guys to get clean and go green!

KSB’s mission is to unite and engage all sectors of the community in the creation, execution and promotion of intelligent, sustainable solutions to fight urban blight.  A connected community is the most powerful catalyst for positive change.  To truly turn Springfield around, all sectors – public, private and nonprofit – must be united and engaged in the effort.  KSB has proven its mission has the power to compel mass participation.  With an all-volunteer staff, KSB operates with phenomenal effectiveness and efficiency.

The Joseph D. Freedman Bowl-a-Thon is held every year to benefit the lives of adults with developmental differences living at Camphill Village USA in Copake, NY. The event, now approaching its 9th year, is the brainchild of the siblings of Susie Freedman, who has lived at Camphill since 1977.

Camphill lies on 615 acres of wooded hills, gardens, and pastures in rural upstate New York, where adults with special needs and long- and short-term service volunteers live and work together as equals in extended family homes throughout the Village.

The founding of Camphill Village in 1961 was part of a transformative movement in the United States to reform how society treats people with special needs. Camphill is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to its mission of being an integrated community where people with developmental differences are living a life of dignity, equality, and purpose.
