Perkins School for the Blind

Success Story

Perkins, located in Watertown, works to enrich the lives and futures of children who are visually impaired, blind, deafblind, or have additional disabilities. To advance its mission of fostering access and inclusion through education, the school needed funds for a range of vital updates and improvements. MassDevelopment issued a $4.1 million tax-exempt bond on behalf of the school, which TD Bank purchased. Perkins is using the bond proceeds to renovate two buildings, modernize classrooms, design a new lunchroom, and upgrade critical infrastructure. Thanks to these capital improvements, Perkins is now even better equipped to build independent, engaged, and happy futures for its students.
