MARIANNE AJEMIAN

CLERK

William Boynton is Senior Vice President for Morgan Stanley. After fifteen years as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the New England Region of the American Diabetes Association, Bill was looking for a new organization to become involved with. That’s where HomeStart came in. Initially, Bill discovered HomeStart while working out at Fitness International. He saw signs for HomeStart’s annual ICycle event and immediately loved the concept and signed up. Bill believes HomeStart is one of the few organizations that could realistically end homelessness.


Bill has been on the board for the past 9 years, and is a strong asset to the organization. As a member of the Development Committee he leads HomeStart’s fundraising efforts in expanding HomeStart’s collaboration with the private sector. “I’m a strong believer in giving back, that’s one of my strongest passions, to give back to society, and this is one of the best ways for me to do so, because I truly believe in [HomeStart’s] mission.”
