The Boston Business Journal honored William Blair for its charitable contributions to Massachusetts-based charities at its 2023 Corporate Citizenship Awards event held September 7 in Boston.
This is the fourth year in a row William Blair was recognized among the state’s top corporate philanthropists.
The event recognized 100 employers that gave a combined $425 million in cash contributions to charitable organizations last year. This year's honorees included companies from industry sectors such as financial and professional services, health care, technology, retail, and professional sports.
“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. 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.
Through its corporate giving and employee matching gift program, William Blair and its Boston office colleagues supported several nonprofits in 2022, including Boston community partner Generation Citizen. Generation Citizen is working to transform civics education so that young people are equipped and inspired to exercise their civic power.
William Blair colleagues Rebecca Vautour and Erik Rayner attended the event and were inspired by the keynote speaker, the companies and speakers honored specifically for Community Collaboration, and the overall atmosphere of the award ceremony.
