We are proud to announce that the Boston Business Journal today released its annual list of the region’s top corporate charitable contributors and has named EchoStor Technologies to this list. The list is comprised of 79 companies that gave at least $100,000 to local nonprofits in 2014. The companies will be honored at the Business Journal’s annual Corporate Citizenship Summit Sept. 17 at the Westin Waterfront hotel.

“Greater Boston has long been known as a region whose business community responds to the needs of the community,” said Gale Murray, publisher of the Business Journal. “By highlighting those in industry who go above and beyond, the Boston Business Journal provides a benchmark for others to strive for, and a forum in which to have the discourse needed for all of us to continue improving.”

In addition to honoring top local corporate benefactors, the Corporate Citizenship Summit acknowledges partnerships between firms and nonprofit organizations, and additionally, presents an annual CEO Social Leadership Award to a regional executive who has shown model ability to lead his or her company to constant and tenacious activity in the community service field.
