Boston Business Journal names Berkshire Bank among the most charitable companies in Massachusetts



Recognized as Top Charitable Contributor for the 10th Straight Year

Boston, MA - Fri., Sept. 9, 2022 – The Boston Business Journal (BBJ) yesterday named Berkshire Bank an honoree in its annual 2022 Corporate Citizenship Awards, in recognition of the region's top corporate charitable contributors. The BBJ annually publishes this list to showcase companies that promote and prioritize giving back to their communities, which is even more important in the challenging times collectively experienced throughout 2021. 

Berkshire Bank was honored at the BBJ’s 17th Annual Corporate Citizenship Awards at the Revere Hotel Boston Common. The evening was filled with networking, making connections, and recognizing all the charitable contributors, the Alnoba Lewis Family Foundation CEO Social Leadership Awardee, and our 2022 Corporate Citizenship Community Collaboration Awardees.

“For more than 175 years, Berkshire has been a purpose-driven bank and an engine for positive change. We are honored to be recognized for this annual award as a Top Charitable Contributor for the 10th straight year by the Boston Business Journal. This award symbolizes our multi-year, multibillion-dollar BEST Community Comeback transformational pledge to help the communities we serve in reaching their untapped potential and thrive,” stated Lori Gazzillo Kiely, SVP, Regional President for Berkshire County and Vermont, and Director of the Berkshire Bank Foundation.  When people ask what fuels us, we imagine better communities.
