Workers Credit Union among the most charitable companies in Massachusetts

The Boston Business Journal has named Workers Credit Union an honoree in its annual 2022 Corporate Citizenship Awards, a recognition of the region's top corporate charitable contributors.

The Business Journal annually publishes this list to showcase companies that promote and prioritize giving back to their communities – a feat that is even more important during times of turmoil and crisis, such as those we all collectively experienced throughout 2021. 

“The past couple of years has presented companies and communities with many challenges, and the needs have continued to grow.  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 2021. Collectively, they gave $322 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.

This year 95 companies have qualified for the distinction by reporting at least $100,000 in cash contributions to Massachusetts-based charities last year as noted above. The honorees this year include companies from such industry sectors as financial and professional services, health care, technology, retail, and professional sports.  

In 2021, Workers Credit Union contributed over $400,000 to 175 organizations across Franklin, Middlesex and Worcester counties in addition to in-kind donations, employee volunteer hours and employee payroll contribution match. In 2022, Workers introduced Workers Kindness, a program that empowers members to direct the credit union’s charitable giving through quarterly voting.

“Workers is proud to be recognized for our charitable work. Supporting our communities is central to our DNA,” said Doug Petersen, President & CEO of Workers Credit Union. “We are inspired by our fellow nominees, employees, and members by their generosity and willingness to support organizations across the region.”
