Boston MA – August 1, 2017 -  The Baystate Financial Charitable Foundation (BFCF) has received a $10,000 grant from the MassMutual Foundation as part of a national Community Service Award (CSA) program. BFCF is one of twenty-two organizations nationally to receive an award. The MassMutual Foundation made the grant as a tribute to the volunteer efforts of Dave Porter, Managing Partner of Baystate Financial in Boston.       

“We are stronger when we come together as a community, and our Community Service Awards program recognizes a group of MassMutual financial professionals who embody this spirit, working with members of their respective neighborhoods, towns and cities, helping nonprofits with which they are involved grow and thrive,” said Dennis Duquette, Head of MassMutual Community Responsibility and President of the MassMutual Foundation.   “We are proud of the time and energy Dave dedicates to better his community and delighted to support the great work MassMutual financial professionals do with organizations across the country.”

Founded in 1999, the Baystate Financial Charitable Foundation was designed to bring assistance to the many children’s charities within our communities. The BFCF goal is to raise money and awareness in order to make a positive impact in the day to day lives of children in need.

“Baystate Financial Charitable Foundation seeks to support charities which promote and improve quality of life for disadvantaged children and families.  We will give to programs that strengthen the family unit and parent-child relationships and promote youth development.  While we are proud to help families and professionals plan for a better future, we are also proud to take our talent and knowledge into less fortunate communities” exclaims Dave Porter.

Dave has been the Managing Partner of Baystate Financial since 1999. He has been committed to the Baystate Financial Charitable Foundation from the start and has dedicated countless hours of time and talent to help the organization grow and flourish.

“I am very pleased that my dedication to the Baystate Foundation has been recognized by the MassMutual Foundation,” said Dave.  “This grant will provide much needed funding to continue supporting our community through the DCF Kids Fund programs.”
