There are three ways to donate (see below). We love to publicly thank everyone who helps us in various ways, so please email us if you wish to remain anonymous!
The easiest way is to make a donation via our secure payment portal hosted by Coalition for a Better Acre! You may pay by any major credit card or by Paypal. Please share on social media, and small amounts help us in big ways.
Send a Check
If you prefer sending a donation in the mail, please make a check or money order out to:

and mail to:
Points of Light Lowell c/o Coalition for a Better Acre

Individual or Corporate Sponsorship
We have several sponsorship packages available for larger donations! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask about individual and corporate sponsorship opportunities.
Points of Light is completely free, made possible by donations from the community. Without the community’s generosity, we can’t bring local music groups to perform, can’t invite faith-based and ethnic organizations to share their cuisines while raising funds, and would not be able to provide lanterns for decoration to youth programs across Lowell.
Our fundraising goal for 2023 is $25,000, which includes all costs directly related to the festival and a small amount to contribute to an endowed fund that will help ensure Points of Light will recur year after year. Local business sponsorships, cultural grants, foundations, and donations from community members make it possible.
