Sponsorships and Charitable Giving 

The ways we give are many, as are the reasons.

We sponsor community organizations by providing contributions to local groups across the towns and communities we serve.  Through the Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation we make major grants to non-profit organizations for a specific purpose.  We also make smaller corporate donations where no sponsorship is involved.

General Description

Grants are larger contributions made to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations and are reviewed bi-annually.

Community Sponsorships & Advertising are contributions made to community-based organizations who then place an ad or logo on their materials, display a banner at an event, or provide some other type of advertising or recognition.

Corporate Giving contributions are smaller contributions made as donations to 501(c)(3) organizations. These do not require placement of marketing or advertising materials.

​Each year Middlesex will donate a scoreboard to a deserving school, organization or group.

 

Here are some examples of recent scoreboard donations.
