Donor Spotlight: The Charles & M.R. Shapiro Foundation

In this donor spotlight, Thresholds is excited to feature The Charles & M.R. Shapiro Foundation. Since 1958, the Charles & M.R. Shapiro Foundation has supported a range of issues from the arts and academics to medical research and social services. The foundation made its first gift to Thresholds in 1984 and has since donated $253,000 to our organization.

Most recently, The Charles & M.R. Shapiro Foundation has supported our General Operating Fund. General operating support is vital to Thresholds’ success and a key reason for our continued growth. In fiscal year 2017, Thresholds served more than 15,000 individuals experiencing serious mental illnesses across more than 30 unique programs that employed nearly 150 clinical teams. Each of our programs is tailored to meet the unique needs of specific populations experiencing mental illnesses, including: youth, veterans, mothers and their children, individuals exiting the prison system, homelessness, and the deaf or hard of hearing. Gifts to our General Operating Fund give Thresholds the flexibility needed to ensure all of our programs are fully supported.

The Charles and M.R. Shapiro Foundation has been a dedicated partner of Thresholds for more than 30 years. Because of this, Thresholds can continue offering our clients life-saving, community-based services. We are grateful to the Charles and M.R. Shapiro Foundation and could not do this work without them!
