Children's Miracle Network
The Children’s Miracle Network is a charity that raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals. Donations to Children’s Miracle Network are used to provide charitable care, purchase life-saving equipment, and fund research and education programs that save and improve the lives of thousands of patients at Children’s Hospitals each year. Because donations always stay local, contributions from our agents directly benefit Boston Children's Hospital.
Through their partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network, RE/MAX On the River agents donate a portion of each home sale to The Children’s Miracle Network.
Donations to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® go toward a variety of vital categories within the hospitals, which include:
Charitable Care: Donations help support the cost of patient care, including medical bills, travel assistance, home expenses, medical equipment, specialized continued care and patient needs.
Education: Donations fund education to support patients, families and the community. This includes services like continuing the patient’s education while they’re out of school for treatment and education for the hospital staff and community on preventative care, safety, trauma and more.
Patient Services: Donations help provide services such as art therapy, music therapy, pet therapy, outdoor gardens and playgrounds, playrooms, comfort tools, pastoral care, counseling, case management, and continued care.
Advancement Services: Donations advance the physical and programmatic excellence to continue to deliver the best possible services for the best possible patient outcomes in the future. This includes expansion projects, capital projects, and the creation of innovative programs and services.
Equipment: Donations help purchase and maintain medically-necessary equipment (such as incubators, CT scanners, etc.) and transport equipment (such as helicopters, ambulances, etc.).
Research: Donations seed funding necessary to continue innovative, transformational research. This includes creating medical advances, finding cures and engaging in clinical trials.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®
Since 1992, RE/MAX agents have helped Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® support millions of kids each year who are treated at member hospitals throughout North America. Our donations stay local, which means RE/MAX agents who participate in the Miracle Home Program are helping kids in their own neighborhoods receive the best care possible.
Our Neighbors Table
Our Neighbors’ Table was established in 1991 and has a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit status. ONT offers a hot meal every Wednesday evening from 4-6pm, operates a food pantry once a week and offers a number of other programs and services for local families in need. Our Neighbors’ Table is a member of the Merrimack Valley Round Table on Hunger and the North Shore Hunger Network. RE/MAX On the River agents are proud volunteers at ONT several times a year.
Community Giving Tree
Community Giving Tree began in 2002 when its founders recognized there were abundant resources to share with families living just a short distance from their community of Boxford, MA. Every year, 10,000 children from northeastern Massachusetts are provided with basic necessities needed to grow and thrive. RE/MAX On the River’s Middleton office is a drop-off location for various collection drives each year: diapers in Feb/Mar, school supplies in June/July, and blankets & pajamas in Oct/Nov.
Margaret Cargill Memorial Scholarships
The RE/MAX On the River Charitable Foundation scholarships are named in honor of our beloved Margaret Cargill who passed away in early 2017. Margaret was a generous contributor to the Charitable Foundation and believed strongly in giving back to our local communities.
RE/MAX On the River is proud to recognize that same spirit in our local youth by awarding a scholarship to a graduating, college-bound (2 or 4 year institution) senior from each of five local high schools: Amesbury, Masconomet, Pentucket, Newburyport, and Triton.
Recipients are chosen based on their efforts to benefit their communities. Over the course of four years in high school, they must have demonstrated personal initiative and a commitment to giving back by involving themselves in charitable endeavors.
The RE/MAX On the River Scholarship Program is made possible by the generous donations of the Realtors at RE/MAX On the River. Each Realtor contributes a portion of their yearly closed sales to the Charitable Foundation.

Yankee Homecoming & Merrimac Old Home Days
Every summer the REALTORS at RE/MAX On the River are a sponsor of the Yankee Homecoming Waterfront Concert Series. It’s a local tradition and we look forward to each each year! We are fortunate to have one of the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloons available to us and bring it to the Yankee Homecoming Family Fun Day at Maudslay State Park and the Merrimac Old Home Days for tethered rides. Donations collected for the rides are turned over to the fundraising committees for each event.
