North Star Community Hall relies on donations, grants, and volunteers to maintain our amazing old building. Goethe Community Trust, Inc., is our legal name; we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and your gift is tax-deductible.

There are many ways to contribute. We welcome donations of cash by checks, credit card, and Paypal; you also can give stocks and mutual funds, through a Donor Advised fund, and even through your RMD, your IRA, or other retirement accounts.

Please be in touch with us directly with any questions.  Email us at, and if you include your phone number, we’ll be happy to call you back.

We look forward to speaking with you about how, together, we can ensure this historic, multi-generational, inclusive neighborhood gathering place in Burlington’s diverse Old North End will thrive for the next 100 years!

We will mail you a letter acknowledging your donation.

Thank you!
