The following is a press release
NATICK – The Boston Business Journal has named Middlesex Savings Bank an honoree in its annual 2020 Corporate Citizenship Awards, a recognition of the region’s top corporate charitable contributors.
The Business Journal annually publishes this list to showcase companies that promote and prioritize giving back to their communities — a feat that is even more important during times of turmoil and crisis like we have experienced in 2020.
“During a year filled with unprecedented events and change, it’s incredible to think that the Boston Business Journal’s Corporate Charitable Contributors list is the largest we have ever compiled. These companies give back at least $100,000 to the local community, and now we are in a time when giving back and helping one another is more important than ever,” said Boston Business Journal Market President and Publisher Carolyn Jones. “These philanthropic companies prioritize the welfare of our communities, and we are excited to be able to honor them.”
This year 107 companies — a record number — have qualified for the distinction by reporting at least $100,000 in cash contributions to Massachusetts-based charities and social-service nonprofits last year. The honorees this year include companies from health care, technology, financial and professional services, retail, professional sports and more. This year’s list grew by two honorees compared with last year.
“We are again humbled to have earned recognition as a BBJ Top Corporate Charitable Contributor,” said Middlesex Savings Bank President and CEO Mike McAuliffe. “In difficult times like these, it is more important than ever to support the nonprofit organizations that do so much for our communities.”
Top corporate contributors such as Middlesex Savings Bank, which in many instances include corporations and their charitable foundations, will be honored at the BBJ’s 15th Annual Corporate Citizenship Awards on Sept. 10, a celebration of honorees that will be virtual to ensure everyone’s health and safety.
