The GIFT of Chelmsford Program is a "Buy Local" initiative. The program is a partnership between the Economic Development Commission, the Chelmsford Business Association and the DECA club from the Chelmsford High School.

Program Overview


  • Promotes local purchases through a tangible gift certificate
  • Gift certificates are available in $10 and $25 denominations
  • Managed by the Town's Community Development Department
  • There are no fees and / or surcharges for participating.
  • This is not a high school project, but rather an official Town program

How the Program Works


  • Gift certificates can be purchased in person at the Town Offices, the Senior Center, the High School Main Offices and at various community events.
  • Gift Certificate can be used at any business that is registered in the program. A registered business will have a window cling on display. (see reverse for current Business Listing)
  • Gift certificates must be used for no less than half of the Gift Certificate value.
  • Upon the completion of the retail / services transaction, if value remains on the certificate, the customer receives the cash value and the business keeps the certificate.
  • The business will take the gift certificate to any bank and will be able to cash and or deposit it as an ordinary check
  • Gift certificates may not be replaced if lost or stolen
