Greater Boston Council on Alcoholism, Inc.



Making a donation or bequest to

Greater Boston Council on Alcoholism


This foundation was  established out of gratitude: one of the thousands of people Elizabeth Whitney Post counseled over the years left her a substantial legacy. She created a charitable foundation in order to generate an annual income sufficient to make a number of small, but important grants annually.

Since then and over the years, the foundation has been the 

welcome recipient of donations from individuals who chose to

honor a loved one by making an anonymous gift or bequest to

the fund. All donations become part of the general fund to support the mission of the Greater Boston Council on Alcoholism.

If you would like to make an anonymous donation to GBCoA, please contact the Grants Manager to learn more.

The Phoenix rises from the ashes.

"Collectively, the voices of people in recovery  say that, through their close encounters
with death of body or self, they have come to understand both the fleeting transience and preciousness of life, and, as a result, the importance of living every moment as a gift
to be cherished and lived to its fullest....They constitute what might be called a Phoenix Society
of men and women, who in the face of utter personal destruction, have not only survived
 but been reborn, often with decades of life to live, to serve, to teach."  

William L. White, "The Boon of Recovery"
