UPDATE 3/19/2020: We are concerned for everyone in our community and the larger world, and have set up a relief fund specifically to help address needs that arise within our network and community, which includes a large percentage of low-income youth and families. If you would like to help some individual families in the high-need cities of Lowell, Lawrence, and Lynn who face challenges and crises in the coming weeks and months, please consider helping us grow this fund now. Thank you!
UPDATE 3/13/2020: Our very special concert event with Broadway performer, Nicholas Ward, has been POSTPONED until September 2020 due to coronavirus concerns.

Thank you to all of you who have supported our end-of-year fundraising efforts!! We could not carry out this work and support all of the 500 kids who want to participate this year if it weren’t for you. We are also thrilled and grateful to have the support of the Rogers Family Foundation (3 years), the Saab Family Foundation (3 years), The Stevens Foundation (2 years), The Lenny Zakim Fund (5 years), the Cummings Foundation (4 years), the Greater Lowell Community Foundation (2 years), the Highland Street Foundation, and the Nordson Corporation!

What We Do
Aaron’s Presents is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that offers 1) hands-on, individualized mentoring, 2) materials/services and 3) logistical help to any child in 8th grade or below who want to carry out an idea that benefits at least one other person, animal or the environment. We follow the children’s vision as they create and lead a memorable, meaningful and fun experience by practicing kindness, empathy and generosity.
In the process they discover the value of their ideas and unique qualities and their ability to make the world better exactly as they are at every age and stage. Ours is a new approach to “community service,” because we’re asking kids to start seeing giving not as an occasional obligation but as their larger purpose.
Our Mission
Inspiring kids to give of themselves for the good of the world.
Our Vision
We envision a world in which all children learn to seek happiness, healing and purpose by tapping into who they are and reaching out to help others with empathy, generosity and passion.
