Todd Tallman and Cornerstone Bank received the Strengthening Foundations of Community Award
Cornerstone Bank, a community bank with 12 locations throughout Central Massachusetts, along with Chief Executive Officer Todd Tallman were recently awarded the YMCA of Central Massachusetts' Strengthening Foundations of Community Award. For more than 20 years, Cornerstone Bank has served not only as a banking partner to the YMCA, but also provided volunteer and financial support to the organization. Leading by example was Tallman, who is an active and engaged supporter of YMCA's mission and cause.
“I was so honored to receive this award along with my entire organization,” said Tallman. “I firmly believe the YMCA of Central Massachusetts changes the lives of many in our community, and I have been so proud over the past two decades to have a small hand in their success. I want to thank all my colleagues for also adopting those same values and jumping in to volunteer and raise funds for the Y.”
Over the years, Cornerstone Bank has supported the YMCA through annual and capital campaigns, youth development program grants, and a multitude of event sponsorships, including the YMCA’s Annual Golf Classic. Tallman and the Cornerstone team have also volunteered at the United Way Day of Caring at Camp Foskett, run by the YMCA of Central Massachusetts.
“We look forward to a continued partnership with our local YMCA,” continued Tallman. “The aligned values of the Y and Cornerstone Bank include supporting our communities, educating and enriching the lives of children, and helping our neighbors in need. Our area of the state is a better place because of the YMCA, and we are excited to continue collaborating with this fulfilling organization.” The Strengthening Foundations of Community Award was presented at the YMCA’s 158th Annual Meeting & Volunteer Recognition Event held on April 20, 2022.
