Massachusetts Service Alliance
At a time when many families and communities are struggling, Massachusetts residents are stepping forward in record numbers to serve and roll up their sleeves to help solve the growing challenges facing their communities. More than ever before organizations are relying upon volunteers and corps members to help them meet those needs.
The Massachusetts Service Alliance (MSA) invests in community-based organizations and institutions that rely upon volunteers and people engaged in service to meet their community’s needs. Through investing, convening, advocating, and building capacity, MSA develops and supports initiatives that incorporate service and volunteerism as effective strategies to address the pressing needs in the Commonwealth.
