The funds are proceeds from the foundation’s 25th annual golf tournament held at the Salem Country Club. Each year, Salem Five employees nominate organizations that they are personally involved in. Twenty-five are then selected to receive a $1,000 award each. Among the organizations receiving donations were Acord Food Pantry in Hamilton, Beverly Bootstraps Community Services, Danvers Community YMCA, Healing Abuse Working for Change, Independent Living Center of the North Shore and Cape Ann, Marblehead Museum & Historical Society, and the Plummer Home for Boys in Salem.
