With Giving at its Core, MSP Expo Sponsor Granite Named Top Charitable Company in Massachusetts

By Greg Tavarez September 12, 2023

We, as consumers, rate businesses and corporations based on their latest big product. What’s the latest flagship phone? What is their 2024 car model? Or, in the telecommunications industry, what kind of phone or voice services do they offer now?

Well, many would agree that without consumers, their products wouldn’t matter. Consumers constantly give to the corporations, enabling them to create those innovative products and solutions. But what are corporations giving back?

Just how consumers give to corporations, it is just as important for businesses to give back to the community. Here’s why. Corporate philanthropy benefits a company in several ways. It helps the company give back to the community. It improves the company’s public reputation. It increases sales. And it attracts more talented candidates.

Sounds like a win across the board.

With $72.8 million in donations to Massachusetts-based charities, amounting to the largest annual sum of Massachusetts-based donations made in its 15 years as a Top Charitable Contributor, Granite Telecommunications knows a thing or two about giving back to the community. That is why Granite was named the No. 1 most charitable contributor in Massachusetts at the Boston Business Journal’s 18th annual Corporate Citizenship Awards.

This year's recognition marks the 15th consecutive year that Granite received this honor and the third time it has earned the top spot, following its previous No. 1 rankings in the preceding year and 2019. Granite's repeated recognition underscores the company’s dedication to making a positive impact on its community and beyond.

Under Granite President and CEO Rob Hale’s leadership, Granite has consistently prioritized giving back to the community. For example, the company established Granite Gives Back Inc., a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, as a dedicated vehicle for identifying, planning and funding philanthropic projects. Granite Gives Back leads by example, selecting a charitable organization each week for the Granite team to rally behind, with Granite matching every dollar raised.

Additionally, the organization coordinates volunteer events that Granite team members participate in through company-sponsored Volunteer Time Off.

“Our commitment to giving back is rooted in our belief that businesses have a vital role in shaping vibrant communities,” said Hale. “This recognition is testament to our commitment to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those we serve."

Granite is a Silver sponsor of MSP Expo, taking place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, February 13-15, 2024. Part of the #TECHSUPERSHOW, MSP Expo is the premier event for MSPs, offering a three-day experience combining conference education, networking opportunities, an exhibit hall full of the latest technologies and solutions to help MSPs build their business, and more. Granite will be in Booth #723 in the exhibit hall.
