We’re low on storage space and high on stuff. Instead of traditional wedding gifts, we’d like you to consider donating to one of the funds below, which are near and dear to our hearts. We'd love to write you a thank you note, so please be sure to include your name.

Belchertown Rec Center

Alex’s father, Barry, was a basketball coach at the Belchertown rec center for over 20 years. In his memory, an account has been set up for donations to help families take part in Belchertown Rec sports who may otherwise be unable to afford to participate.

Checks can be made payable to Town of Belchertown with a memo for the Barry Lanstein gift account and mailed to PO Box 607, Attn: Treasurer, Belchertown, MA 01007.                    

Cradles to Crayons

Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. For the past few years, Emily has been volunteering at their Boston-based center, which supports 400,000 kids in Massachusetts.

Visit our donation page to make an online gift to Cradles to Crayons.

Tabor Academy Financial Aid

Tabor is where we first met, as awkward teenagers, and reconnected over a decade later at an alumni happy hour. We’re both actively involved in the school’s community and are working hard to ensure that financial aid is available for students who would not otherwise be able to attend Tabor. Please visit Tabor's website and follow these steps to make a donation:

1) Select "Financial Aid" from the Online Designation drop-down

2a) Write "Emily Schnure & Alex Lanstein's Wedding" in the Gift Instructions box


2b) Select the "Tribute Gift" box and make the donation "In Honor Of" and write

"Emily Schnure & Alex Lanstein's Wedding" in the name box

3) Fill in the rest!
