Make a Donation

The BSRA has succeeded for over 60 years because of generous donations from members, supporters, and friends like you. We deeply appreciate every donation, regardless of size. As an all-volunteer organization with no paid help, all funds received are used for our programs and will be well spent. To see how your donations have helped us reach our goals, view recent restoration photos and download our 2021 Annual Fund Appeal. You can also check out our recent Annual Reports.

We currently maintain two funds that serve as the “core” of our organization:

5706 Restoration Fund

Our 5706 Restoration Fund helps to restore the historic Boston streetcar around which the BSRA was founded in 1959. To read about recent progress on the car, download our latest Fund Appeal.

General Fund

Our General Fund helps to cover the Association’s special projects and operating costs—everything from our monthly meetings to software for book production. To read about how the General Fund has helped us in recent months, download our latest Fund Appeal.

Donating to both funds?

We are working on a unified form with which to donate to both funds at once, but at this time you must complete the two transactions separately using the links above. We apologize for the inconvenience, and deeply appreciate your donations!

Donate by mail

To donate by mail and pay by check or money order, download our latest Fund Appeal and follow the instructions within. Thank you in advance!

Donation receipts

No matter how you make your donation, or how much you give, you’ll receive a receipt by mail for your tax-deductible donation.
