Companies that Give Back to Society
November 30, 2022
Certainly, when the first large companies began, there was little thought that any business might actively work to give back to society in general. But we’ve come to expect more from our corporate entities over the last 25 years, and many have responded by kicking off internal programs dedicated to just that – giving back. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, let’s give some thanks to these organizations for paying it back.
Please tell us why you are compelled to give back to society as a company?
We’ve always been dedicated to being good owners and good neighbors — and this commitment extends far beyond our home equity investment product and our interactions with both each other and our homeowners. That’s why it’s important for us to put time, energy, and resources toward making a difference. This includes improving our neighborhoods, building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture; and helping homeowners, youth, and underserved groups increase their financial literacy.
What are some of the ways your company gives back?
We’ve partnered with Boston-area nonprofit organizations to make our communities better places to live for everyone in as many ways as we can, whether it’s through sharing our time or material items with those in need. We’ve provided essential household items for families with The Home for Little Wanderers, donated school supplies and clothing to homeless children with Cradles to Crayons, and created activity kits for children in transition to permanent housing with Heading Home — just to name a few. In addition, we’re committed to increasing financial literacy through providing economic mobility services like education and career path development with the ultimate goal of ending generational poverty. We’re determined to make a big difference in the world around us, one small step at a time.
