Each year Westfield sets aside a portion of our pre-tax income to fund charitable giving targeted at improving the lives and education of children in our area and supporting the charitable efforts of our various clients.

 

Westfield also offers an employee gift matching gift program to match charitable donations made by employees to registered nonprofit organizations. Additionally, Westfield donates used office equipment and computer equipment to charitable organizations and inner city schools in the Greater Boston area.

While Westfield understands the need to support qualified organizations financially, we also recognize the importance of taking a hands-on approach to make a difference. Our employees’ personal involvement exemplifies our commitment to community service. Westfield and its employees are proud to support and actively participate in the following charities:
