For over 160 years, H.M. Payson has supported organizations and agencies in the communities we serve through gifts, capital campaigns and sponsorship’s. We do not consider these actions gifts. They are partnerships.
We celebrate the innovative work being done by our neighbors, like at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. Or the amazing comfort and counsel an organization like the Center For Grieving Children provides. Or the critical outreach provided to those in need by Preble Street and the Tedford Center.
But the truth is, anyone can write a check.
A real measure of our commitment is the active role so many of our employees take in the community. Scroll through their bios and note the number of causes – ranging from child welfare, hunger prevention, health and wellness, the arts and environment, hospice care and the economically disadvantaged – to which our employees volunteer their time. We do so freely and because we feel it’s an honor to be in a position to serve.
In the end, ensuring the welfare of all is the best investment any of us can make.
