Each year, we hold a fundraiser to provide assistance to local charitable organizations. In 2016, we raised over $43,000, which was distributed to 57 non-profits in our local community. This year, we hope to raise $50,000 in order to further extend a helping hand to our neighbors in need.

Would you like to help us reach our goal? You can donate to our event in any of the following ways:

  • Donate a gift card to any retail store, restaurant, merchant, or an in-kind donation of your services, for our silent auction or raffle. (download donation form for details)
  • Make a donation online, or by mailing a check made payable to We Share A Common Thread Foundation. (download donation form for details)
  • Join us for a fun-filled evening with dancing, basket raffles, silent auction and more! That night, you will have the opportunity to meet some of the worthy charities we have supported throughout the year.
All of our generous supporters will be recognized on this website as a contributor to our event.

Steve Jones Legacy Fund

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Steve Jones Legacy Fund. Your efforts have helped us reach our fundraising goal of $100,000. The earnings from this fund will annually be distributed to the non-profits that Steve was so passionate about. We will be able to share Steve’s legacy in perpetuity!

A Message from the Jones Family

That is wonderful news about the Steve Jones Legacy Fund reaching the $100,000 goal. Steve gave his all to Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union, as well as many Non-Profits. It is great to know that the time and effort that he so freely gave to numerous organizations will be recognized. Steve worked very hard, and to have this Honor in his name is truly special. Our entire family thanks everyone from the bottom of our hearts for trusting this to be a deserving Fund which represents Steve’s selfless giving.

Steve’s attendance at many meetings was paramount. He loved being the face of the Credit Union and it is heartwarming to know that the many organizations that Steve volunteered to help will benefit from his Legacy Fund.

We can tell you that Steve never would have looked for any personal recognition for the time that he freely gave to the many organizations, within the Credit Union, Town of Chelmsford and the entire Merrimack Valley. He did it because it was important to him — to give and to help out. Hoping to make a difference in one way or another.

This Legacy in Steve’s name is a gift. It is a gift to Steve, for all that he did for so many. It is also a gift for our Family. A gift to let us know that all that he gave was so appreciated.

It means so much to our family that so many cared for and appreciated Steve for who he was.

Thank you to all.
