Corporate Citizenship Awards logoTAUNTON, MA, September 26, 2017 — Bristol County Savings Bank (BCSB), headquartered in Taunton, Massachusetts, announces that it was recently named to the 2017 list of Top Charitable Contributors in Massachusetts by Boston Business Journal.  The Bank was ranked #42 on the list of a record 94 companies that granted at least $100,000 to Massachusetts non-profits during the 2016 calendar year.  Bristol County Savings Bank awarded more than $1.5 million to various Massachusetts 501(c)(3) organizations last year.  The companies were honored at BBJ’s 12th Annual Corporate Citizenship Awards held earlier this month at Fenway Park in Boston.

“This recognition of our efforts and those of our Foundation is pretty special as we are a community mutual bank and believe that the neighborhoods we serve are our stakeholders,” said Patrick Murray, President & CEO of Bristol County Savings Bank and President of Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation.  “This allows us to place a premium on being actively involved in the community.  In fact, our mission is to support our communities by making them a better place to live and work.”  Murray added that the Foundation has committed a total of more than $18 million to hundreds of different non-profit organizations since its inception a little more than 20 years ago.

“We are incredibly proud of the 94 companies that qualified for the list,” said Carolyn Jones, Market President and Publisher, Boston Business Journal.  “They are all outstanding examples of the impact and importance of giving back.”

The Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation was established in 1996 as part of the Bank’s 150th Anniversary celebration.  Its purpose is to fund needs that contribute to the economic and the social well-being of the people and institutions located in the greater Taunton/Attleboro Region, the greater New Bedford/Dartmouth Region, the Fall River Region and the Pawtucket, Rhode Island Region, with particular emphasis in the areas of education and literacy, economic development and housing for the low- to moderate-income population.
