bankESB named among most charitable companies in Massachusetts
bankESB has received the 2023 Corporate Citizenship Award from Boston Business Journal, recognizing the bank as one of Massachusetts’ top corporate charitable contributors. It’s the ninth year in a row that bankESB has received the honor.
The Business Journal annually publishes this list to showcase companies that promote and prioritize giving back to their communities. Through its sponsorship and charitable giving program, The Giving Tree, bankESB and the Easthampton Savings Bank Charitable Foundation support non-profit organizations and causes throughout Hampden and Hampshire counties. In 2022, The Giving Tree donated nearly $500,000 and over the past decade has donated more than $3.2 million.
“It is with honor that we present our list of the Top Charitable Contributors in Massachusetts – companies who gave $100,000 or more to Mass.-based in charities in 2022. Collectively, they gave $423 million in cash contributions – a true example of the business community coming together to help those in need,” said Boston Business Journal Market President and Publisher Carolyn Jones.
“We’re so proud to be recognized as a good corporate citizen, because that’s exactly what we strive to be. It’s who we are,” said bankESB President & CEO Matthew S. Sosik. “We truly believe in unlocking the potential of the communities we serve and that we can enhance everyone’s quality of life if we work to solve our biggest problems – together.”
This year 100 companies have qualified for the distinction by reporting at least $100,000 in cash contributions to Massachusetts-based charities last year as noted above. The honorees this year include companies from such industry sectors as financial and professional services, health care, technology, retail, and professional sports.
