In the Community
Civic engagement is core to who we are as a firm and as individuals. Our broad firmwide philanthropic initiative, includes ongoing partnerships with organizations like Access Better Learning and Education (“ABLE”), Boston Scores, JDRF, Reclaim Childhood, and Year Up. We enthusiastically encourage our team to give their time, talent, and financial resources to organizations they care about, and we match those efforts through our Berkshire Cares program. Our annual firmwide Day of Service also provides an opportunity for us to volunteer as a group.
As a firm, we have decades-long charitable partnerships with two leading non-profit organizations:
Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston
Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston works to ensure young people can realize their full potential, by providing affordable and safe facilities for youth to grow and learn. It strives to improve academic performance, promote healthy lifestyles, and develop strong character among youth to prepare them for great futures. Berkshire’s relationship with BGCB goes back 30+ years and continues today through servant leadership, volunteering, and financial support.
The Pan-Mass Challenge is an annual bike-a-thon with 100% of every rider-raised dollar donated directly to cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Berkshire has raised more than $7 million since fielding our first official team in 2011 and annually has a large team of riders and volunteers participate.
