In January 2010, Mass Mentoring Partnership lost a friend and true champion of mentoring: our Board Chair, Jim Connolly.
Jim embodied, symbolized, and believed in the power of mentoring. Through the creation of the MMP Board Designated James G. Connolly Tribute Fund, we will honor his memory and advance youth mentoring as a tribute to his character and dedication to mentoring.
This fund will provide support for an annual gift or project that is aligned with MMP's mission of expanding quality youth mentoring across Massachusetts, and Jim’s volunteer leadership and service to the organization.
Partner level members through Quality-Based Membership are eligible to apply for the James G. Connolly Tribute Award. The RFP will be released in summer 2014. In honor of the award's 5th anniversary, we will host a special celebration this fall where we will present the award.
Disbursements from the fund will be approved by the Board of Directors in keeping with the above goals of this board-designated fund. At Mass Mentoring, we will continue to ensure that all young people are connected to adult mentors who will listen to them, stand by them, and guide them.
You can donate with a check made payable to Mass Mentoring Partnership. Please note in the memo line "Donation to Jim Connolly Fund" and send to:
