The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $5,000 to the John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation’s three-year mentoring program for at-risk Framingham teens. 

The MutualOne Foundation grant will help defray the Mentoring Program’s 2013 costs for laptop computers and software given to program mentees who have achieved basic goals toward the pursuit of a college education.

This is the sixth consecutive year that MutualOne has supported the Mentoring Program. 

“We strongly support the goal of encouraging at-risk students to graduate from high school and to think seriously about college or other post-secondary education,” said Robert P. Lamprey, chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation.

“Our Board appreciates the Bank’s past and current support, for without MutualOne Charitable Foundation we would not be able to absorb the annual cost of the computers,” said Executive Director Lowell I. Mazie. “We sincerely appreciate this.”

The $5,000 grant to the Mentoring Program was among awards totaling $45,000 made by the Foundation in its most recent round of funding. 

The MutualOne Charitable Foundation is a continuation of the Framingham Co-operative Bank Charitable Foundation following the 2012 merger of Framingham Co-operative Bank and Natick Federal Savings Bank.

Since it was originally established in 1998, the Foundation has donated over $2.3 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enhance the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.

This is SUCH great news! The Mazie program LITERALLY changes the trajectory of many students' life paths and I have seen with my own eyes kids in the program gain confidence, motivation and self esteem and have watched kids who thought they had NO choices end up with more than they imagined through their own hard work and dedication to themselves under the influence of their Mazie Mentors. Mutual One, we ALL thank you for improving not just the lives of the students and their families, but the world at large for helping to mold these students' futures!!!
