Mission: To promote health in Central Massachusetts through education, innovation, support of quality improvement and access to services.
Results: Over the last 12 mos., our charity has awarded close to a quarter million in grants to promote health in Central MA. Our chief fundraising event, the Drive for a Difference charity auction and golf classic was a critical component in our ability to give these funds. In addition, a robust employee giving campaign and our first Reliant Foundation 5K were wonderful boosts to our fundraising and grantmaking this year.
Programs: Our organization raises money in order to make targeted grants in Central Massachusetts to qualified 501c3 charities whose health and wellness programs and initiatives align with our mission and focus.
Our focus is to battle obesity, increase access to health care, increase the care and comfort of Reliant cancer patients, and encourage early literacy through the Reach Out and Read program.
Reliant Foundation is a wonderful cause to volunteer for. I recently helped out at their inaugural 5K event in October and thought it was very well run. I liked the fact that the charity and the event were promoting health and encouraging good nutrition, physical fitness and healthy living. It was a great day and a good cause to get behind.
