Cornerstone Bank has been named as an honoree in the Boston Business Journal’s 2022 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.
“We are honored to have been recognized for our charitable contributions throughout 2021,” said Cornerstone Bank CEO Todd Tallman. “Our giving efforts last year included nearly $400,000 in donations to local organizations such as the YMCA of Central Massachusetts, United Way, Family Health Center of Worcester, Worcester Community Action Council, UMass Memorial, Worcester County Food Bank and others, as well as 16 scholarships to graduating high school seniors.”
This year, only 95 companies qualified for the distinction by reporting at least $100,000 in contributions to Massachusetts-based charities last year. The honorees include companies from such industry sectors as financial and professional services, health care, technology, retail and professional sports.
“The past couple of years has presented companies and communities with many challenges, and their needs have continued to grow,” said Carolyn Jones, Boston Business Journal market president and publisher. “It is with honor that we present our list of the Top Charitable Contributors in Massachusetts. Collectively, they gave $322 million in cash contributions—a true example of the business community coming together to help those in need. We are proud to celebrate these organizations who give both money and time to make the greater Boston area a stronger and better place for all.”
Cornerstone Bank and other honorees will be celebrated at the Boston Business Journal’s 16th Annual Corporate Citizenship Awards on Thursday, September 8 at the Revere Hotel Boston Common.
“Giving back to our community is an important part of our foundation,” continued Tallman. “We take great pride in the help we can offer to our neighbors here in Central Massachusetts, especially when it comes to education and financial literacy. We are on track this year to continue this giving tradition, having already donated nearly $300,000 to local charities and organizations so far.”
