FRAMINGHAM – A recent $8,910 grant from the MutualOne Charitable Foundation to the Framingham History Center will be used to underwrite major changes to the Framingham History Center’s 3rd grade tours for students in the Framingham Public Schools.
According to Framingham History Center Executive Director Annie Murphy, the funds will be used to cover the cost of education coordinators and curriculum materials as the History Center expands its spring tours to include the newly renovated Village Hall.
“The City of Framingham has been very generous in their restoration of the Village Hall, and we are happy to support the new educational opportunities available at the Framingham History Center,” said Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee.
The $8,910 grant to the Framingham History Center was among awards totaling $138,910 in the MutualOne Charitable 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 $4.6 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
MutualOne Bank, which operates under an 1889 state charter, has full-service offices at 828 Concord Street and One Lincoln Street in Framingham and at 49 Main Street in Natick, a Commercial Loan Center at 160 Cochituate Road in Framingham, and a Residential Loan Center at 49 Main Street in Natick.
