Who we are

Founded in 2004 by a group of close friends, Spero Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of youth in New England. Now, Spero has grown into a group of dedicated committees and supporters all striving for a common goal. Each year, Spero chooses a youth charity/non-profit to sponsor, then plans and hosts events to raise funds for that particular organization. At the end of the calendar year Spero donates all money raised. To maximize the size of our donation, no member of Spero receives any compensation for their work. To date, over $150,000 combined has been donated to youth organizations throughout New England

Our Work

Being few in number ourselves, the members of Spero are primarily concerned with supporting smaller organizations where our contribution is most needed. During these years Spero has been able to donate over $120,000 to charities spanning from Maine to Boston. In 2006 Spero took on its first challenge and supported the David’s House, a youth hospice in Hanover, New Hampshire. In 2007 Spero worked with the HAWC – Help for Abused Women and Children, which provides numerous free services on the North Shore of Massachusetts. In 2008 Spero became personally tied to the Center for Grieving Children, in Portland Maine, a nonprofit administering support and counseling to children who have suffered a loss of a friend
or family member. In 2009 Spero moved their efforts to Boston Ma. where they supported the Youth Enrichment Services Program (Y.E.S) a nonprofit providing after school programs such as career building, skiing and other outdoor activities for inner city youth. In 2010 Spero had their biggest year ever for The PlayBall! Foundation a non-profit organization focused entirely on expanding sports for Boston middle school students. In 2011, Spero donated to Cradles to Crayons. In 2012, all donations benefited the Cromwell Center for Disabilities Awareness. And lastly, our 2013 Benefactor was Summer Search Boston. This year, Spero is supporting The Anthony Quinn Foundation.
