Development Update

As you have read nearby, due to the generosity of our donors during the pandemic, 3Point was able to reimagine and reinstitute our in-person summer academy, return to in-person programming this fall, add in-school programming during the school day, significantly increase the number of schools we serve, double the number of youth we serve, and substantially increase our family engagement. The severe negative impacts of unprecedented school closures inspired us to make an even more meaningful contribution to helping our youth achieve. All of 3Point's programs and services continue to be offered at no cost to the youth and their families who participate. All of what we are doing, the benefit to our students, their families, and the community programs directly results from the generosity of our donors.

As COVID-19 restrictions lessened, we were able to reintroduce some fundraising events outdoors. We had five runners in the 2021 Boston Marathon raise money for 3Point by appealing to their family, friends, businesses, and supporters. We want to give special thanks to Melissa Montoya, Tracy Laughlin, Adrienne Benton, Breann Brady, and Erica Sanders. All finished the race in fine shape and collectively raised nearly $45,000. If you or anyone you know would be interested in running for 3Point when the Boston Marathon returns in April 2022, please contact 3Point Director of Development Keith McDermott at

3Point also benefited from the charity of the First Annual Pension Professionals Golf Tournament organized by Matt Harrington from our long-time supporter Intercontinental Real Estate Corp. Held on October 12, after a July rainout, the golfers enjoyed a beautiful day at the Cohasset Golf Club and generously supported 3Point’s work with underserved, economically disadvantaged youth in Roxbury and Dorchester. Unfortunately, we do not think it advisable to hold our indoor signature annual benefit event yet. Instead, we will have to depend on our friends’ and supporters’ response to our year-end solicitation to raise the necessary funds to support our expanded programming.
