Boston Business Journal names MassMutual among the most charitable companies in Massachusetts

August 1st, 2022

BOSTON Aug 1, 2022 — he Boston Business Journal has named Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) an honoree in its annual 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 – a feat that is even more important during times of turmoil and crisis, such as those we all collectively experienced throughout 2021. 

“The past couple of years have presented companies and communities with many challenges, and the needs have continued to grow.  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 2021. 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 Boston a stronger and better place for all.” said Boston Business Journal Market President and Publisher Carolyn Jones.

This year 95 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.

MassMutual, whose contributions in many instances include both the corporation and its charitable foundation, will be honored at the BBJ’s 17th Annual Corporate Citizenship Awards on Thursday, September 8 at the Revere Hotel Boston Common (200 Stuart St., Boston) from 5:30pm – 8:30pm. The evening will be filled with networking, making connections, and recognizing all the Charitable Contributors, the Alnoba Lewis Family Foundation CEO Social Leadership Awardee and our 2022 Corporate Citizenship Community Collaboration Awardees (previously our Partners of the Year).

“We are honored to be recognized as a top Charitable Company by Boston Business Journal again this year,” said Dennis Duquette, head of Community Responsibility at MassMutual and president of the MassMutual Foundation. “We are proud to support local nonprofit organizations whose missions are critical to creating vibrant, prosperous neighborhoods in the communities where we live and work.”
