FRAMINGHAM – The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $5,000 to support the Mazie Mentoring Program at Framingham High School. Announcement of the award was made today by Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a Foundation trustee.
The Mazie Mentoring Program, run by the John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation, works with youth who face steep odds against realizing their potential. It provides the support and motivation they need to succeed in school and beyond.
According to Haranas, the Foundation’s donation is earmarked for the purchase of laptop computers awarded to student mentees who reach the program’s college research milestone.
“The mentoring program has a history of success in helping youth at risk continue their education and set and achieve their personal goals,” Haranas said , in a press release.“The MutualOne Charitable Foundation is pleased to help offset the cost of the laptops and software students in the program receive as a reward for their determination to succeed.”
The grant to the John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation was among awards totaling $55,000 in the Foundation’s most recent round of funding.
Established in 1998 as the philanthropic arm of MutualOne Bank, the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has since donated over $3.4 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
