Due to the restrictions on golf and community events resulting from COVID-19, The Nemasket Group has decided for the safety and well-being of all to cancel the August 2020 golf tournament. This golf tournament has historically been the organization’s largest fundraising event of the year, and last year’s event was the most successful ever, due to the generosity of our sponsors and golf participants.
As with other organizations, the services The Nemasket Group provides and the delivery of those services, has changed dramatically because of the pandemic. We need your support now, more than ever! Your donation at any level will help us reach the $60K goal we have set for this fundraising event in lieu of the donations raised through the golf tournament.
We are heartened that many of our Participants have asked how they can help, and we are so very grateful that they will support us again this year by contributing at last year’s level. Please consider making a donation so that together we can continue to provide the individualized support needed to the people we serve, enabling them to learn, grow, participate in everyday community opportunities, and lead successful lives that are rich and meaningful.
Consistent with the Commonwealth of MA phase 2 of re-opening plans,
The Nemasket Group will be re-opening our offices on Monday, July 6th
Our temporary office hours will be: Monday-Friday 10:00am – 3:00pm

Due to the universal COVID-19 health crisis The Nemasket Group is modifying the way we hold our annual 5K friend/fundraiser. The 5K Your Way will be held from May 1st through May 31st. We are encouraging our supporters to register for the event, enjoy the 5K of their choice, on the day of their choice, while adhering to social distancing guidelines, and avoiding large gatherings. We are not imposing a fee for registration this year, but donations are appreciated. “Selfies” will be posted on our website and Facebook as we hope to motivate others to join our 5K Your Way!
It’s up to all of us to slow the spread of COVID-19. Everyone, including young and healthy people, should avoid large gatherings during this time. Stay up-to-date with public health guidelines from cdc.gov.
