Make a Donation

The Elizabeth Peabody House exists to serve our community in Somerville and surrounding towns. Every single donation goes directly to our programs and operating costs, including purchases of PPE to keep our teachers and students safe, and partitions to divide up our classroom space. We are extremely grateful for the aid we receive from our community partners, neighbors, families, and supporters as we continue to do our work.
