For several years, PMD has made it possible for busy people to contribute their time and heart to many worthy but under-resourced charities. PMD also invests in the volunteer capacity of Greater Boston through trainings, collaborations, and supporting Directors of Volunteer Administrators (DOVA). PMD & its founder & executive director Lori Tsuruda are an amazing resource for the nonprofit community here!
