Bulfinch Team Makes OneFund Contribution
NEEDHAM, MA - May 7, 2013 - The Bulfinch Companies, Inc., a private commercial real estate investment firm, banded together to raise money in support of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Bulfinch proudly offered to match each employee donation 2-to-1 and distributed B Strong caps, the popular hat that raised over $1.3 million for the fund by giving 100% of the proceeds back to the victims.
“Bulfinch is proud to have contributed directly to The One Fund to help those who were tragically hurt during the Boston Marathon” says Eric Schlager, CEO of Bulfinch. “We are grateful to our employees who supported the efforts and are honored to be part of Boston Strong.”
The One Fund was created at the request of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino to assist victims and families affected by the tragic events April 15 and in the following days. In the weeks since the marathon, through the incredible generosity of thousands of individuals, foundations and corporations, One Fund Boston has raised more than $62 million for the victims and the families.
