9/9/2011, Quincy, MA — For the fifth consecutive year, J. Calnan & Associates, Inc. ranked among the top corporate charitable givers in Massachusetts according to a recent report by the Boston Business Journal. The company was recognized for its charitable giving and for the contributions made by J. Calnan & Associates’ employees. Additionally they ranked #1 overall for average per-employee volunteer hours.
The announcement was made recently at the fifth annual Corporate Philanthropy Summit held at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel which was attended by nearly 1000 leaders representing a wide range of local and national companies with a presence in Massachusetts as well as many non-profit organizations.
“The people of JC&A have a keen understanding of how much help we received from our community in our 15 years of business”, said Jay Calnan, Chief Executive Officer of J. Calnan & Associates. “We have successfully grown from a start-up company to an industry leader and are extremely cognizant of how instrumental our community has been in helping us to realize our goals. Our community continues to inspire us every day to be the very best we can and we feel strongly that it is our obligation to return that support in every way we can.”
J. Calnan & Associates has always been involved with and continues to give time and financial resources to organizations like The United Way, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Children’s Hospital, and the Jimmy Fund. JC&A has had the opportunity to grant a Make-A-Wish child his wish of having a pirate ship themed tree house; build a new bakery for the St. Coletta and Cardinal Cushing School of Massachusetts and convert a basement into a handicapped accessible living area for a child recently involved in a hockey accident.
This year, however, JC&A has taken that philanthropic spirit one step further by becoming a founding partner in a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, Team IMPACT. The mission of Team IMPACT is to connect and cultivate meaningful relationships between college athletic teams and children diagnosed with life-threatening diseases.
