Help Dover Children's Home

Get Involved

Make a Donation

With severely limited state funding and annual budget cuts, monetary gifts and donations of any kind throughout the year allow the Home to provide activities, services, and programming to the children that would otherwise be unaffordable.

Be a Volunteer

There are many ways to help DCH besides just giving monetary donations.  We are always looking for volunteers to come help out around the home with various projects, people to come teach our kids special skillsets, or other unique ways that you can help them get them more involved in the Dover community. 

In Kind Donations

Please visit our Amazon Wish List page. This list is updated on a daily basis and can be sorted by priority. Amazon will ship items directly to DCH at 207 Locust Street, Dover, NH 03820 or you can buy locally and swing by DCH to drop the items in need off personally.

BONUS: If you start your Amazon shopping thru AmazonSmile, DCH will receive 0.5% of each purchase total back from Amazon.

Sponsor an Event

A large portion of what keeps DCH around and able to help kids in need are donations.     One of the more efficient and fun ways to gather donations and get people together for a good cause is to hold an event to help raise money for the home and the kids who are living in it. 

Dover Children’s Home has been able to provide services to NH’s most vulnerable children and their families for over 127 years, but only with the philanthropy and support of our community.  There is more than one way to help us continue our mission of supporting youth in their path to living successful, productive and positive lives.

Upcoming Events

May 7, 2020 - First Ever At-Home Tasting Tour

Let us bring the Tasting Tour to you! In order to practice social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, we made the difficult decision to cancel our traditional Tasting Tour. That doesn’t mean you need to miss out on delicious wine and food! To maintain this event, continue to support local small businesses, and connect with our donors, we have decided to partner with Flag Hill Winery in Lee, Diverge restaurant in downtown Dover, and Tendercrop Farm at the Red Barn in Dover to bring the Tasting Tour safely to your home! To see more details and learn how to register, check out our flyer. Contact Lauren with any questions or concerns.

September 21, 2020 - Annual Golf Tournament

* SAVE THE DATE * 13th ANNUAL DCH CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT at The Links at Outlook in South Berwick, Maine. A shotgun start is planned for 8am. We’re looking for foursomes, underwriters, hole sponsors, and items for our raffle and silent auction tables.  Stay tuned for the registration form and list of sponsorship opportunities. For more info, please contact Renee or Lauren.
