CEF Receives $50,000 Gift from Middlesex Savings Bank
February 2018, Concord, MA — Concord Education Fund (CEF) has received a $50,000 gift from Middlesex Savings Bank (MSB), part of a $1.2 million donation in support of education foundations in MSB branch towns.
The Concord Education Fund is a nonprofit organization that awards grants for novel teaching ideas, new learning initiatives, and innovative academic programs that require funding beyond the scope of the district school budget. Therefore, the Middlesex Savings Bank gift will support teachers and administrators in Concord Carlisle Public Schools (CPS) and Concord Carlisle High School (CCHS) who are eager to offer students extraordinary educational experiences.
CEF co-president Suzanne Jachinowski expressed her gratitude, “We’re very grateful for Middlesex Savings Bank’s incredibly generous and totally unexpected gift.” Fellow co-president Rick Hedeman added, “By contributing to the Concord Education Fund, I think MSB knows that they are supporting the incredible commitment and creativity of CPS/CCHS teachers.”
“Middlesex Savings Bank has great respect for the education foundations in our community,” said Michael McAuliffe, President and CEO of Middlesex Savings Bank. “They work hard to support projects and programs that foster learning and creativity. We hope these donations will make their jobs easier this year and are excited to see their existing academic programs flourish or new ones come to life.”
