We are grateful for the very generous support of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), our first Partner to pledge their support at the Leadership Partner level in our first year of launching the program as well as their continued support through the new MassMutual Foundation. This commitment is coupled with strong support of DevelopSpringfield initiatives.

A growing and exciting new facet of MassMutual’s corporate responsibility approach, the MassMutual Foundation – a dedicated corporate foundation established by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) –launched earlier this year with a long term goal of providing a total of $100 million through targeted charitable investments over the next five years. 

The MassMutual Foundation strives to broaden economic opportunity for America’s youth and their families by investing in financial education across the United States and economic development, academic achievement & workforce development locally. The Foundation is a reflection of MassMutual’s longstanding dedication to corporate citizenship and its unwavering commitment to the communities in which we conduct business.

As one of the first partners to pledge their support at the Leadership Partner level, we are grateful for Baystate Health’s continued generosity and support of DevelopSpringfield’s initiatives. With roots dating to the founding of Springfield City Hospital in 1873, Baystate Health has been providing skilled and compassionate healthcare in the Pioneer Valley for more than 140 years. Today, Baystate Health is one of the highest-quality healthcare providers in the nation; U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Baystate Medical Center the top hospital in our region and third ranked hospital in Massachusetts for 2017-2018.  As a not-for-profit, integrated healthcare system, Baystate Health’s 12,000 employees touch nearly one million lives each year in our communities. Last year, Baystate Health provided $150 million in unreimbursed care to ensure quality care to anyone needing care in our diverse community.
