Every year as part of the firm’s Charitable Giving and Community Engagement Program, Putnam sponsors three Days of Service where Putnam teams volunteer their time and energy to support Boston area community organizations.  The initiative is driven by staff and supported by firm.  Employees form teams to research organizations, organize events, and recruit colleagues to participate.

The organizations we supported this year are:

Habitat For Humanity, working with their team to build affordable homes for low-income families in Boston

Community Rowing, landscaping around the community center and fixing equipment to help the organization save money in order to allocate funds to the activities the center brings to Boston and the surrounding area

Future Chefs, to pilot-test a Social Enterprise event designed as a potential means to generate the capital necessary for the non-profit organization to grow and expand its reach
