BAGLY to Honor Trillium for Two Decades of Supporting LGBTQ Youth
JANUARY 4, 2016 // BOSTON, MA: BAGLY (Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth) will recognize Trillium Asset Management, a Boston-based investment firm, for 20 years of financial support at BAGLY’s annual donor appreciation reception on January 14, 2016.
Trillium has also used shareholder activism to successfully engage with dozens of Fortune 500 companies, asking them to implement nondiscrimination policies inclusive of sexual orientation and/or gender identity and expression.
“Trillium has publicly supported BAGLY — and the youth we serve — for over two decades”, said Grace Sterling Stowell, BAGLY’s Executive Director. “The firm’s financial support began at a time when most corporate entities were not willing to entertain the idea of supporting LGBTQ youth programs or services. We are grateful for both Trillium’s leadership and for their continued support of our organization.”
BAGLY’s 2016 “Hero Appreciation” reception will be held at Boston’s Algonquin Club thanks to the generous support of Richard Babson and Philip Doust.
“Our employee-owned firm is proud to support BAGLY and their mission of serving the LGBTQ youth community in Massachusetts”, said Matthew W. Patsky, Trillium Asset Management’s CEO. “We believe strongly in BAGLY’s mission of youth development and its commitment to social justice.”
BAGLY’s “Hero Appreciation” reception will be held on Thursday, January 14, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at The Algonquin Club, 217 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02116. To RSVP, please contact Laurine Lamour by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 617-227-4313 x129.
