The Ultimate Gift

The Salvation Army in Boston was awarded $81 million from the Kroc estate, which was supplemented by a $35 million capital campaign to build and endow The Kroc Center in Boston. The project represents a total investment in the community of nearly $115 million.

When Joan Kroc pledged her gift, she wanted to ensure that operating the Kroc Centers would not negatively impact or diminish the critical human services that The Salvation Army already delivers. Services like providing shelter, food, clothing and disaster relief are critical to nearly 30 million Americans.

She also wanted to ensure that every person, every family would be able to enjoy the center. To keep her vision intact, Mrs. Kroc established an endowment to support Kroc Center programs and operations.

When you make a gift to The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, you become a part of the largest project ever undertaken by The Salvation Army. Your gift becomes grounded in the reputation, trust and credibility of The Salvation Army-which is well known for its continuing efforts of providing relief to the poorest of the poor.

Your gift can help change lives.
