How MAR Supports the Commonwealth

With a mission to support those in need across the Commonwealth, the MAR Charitable Foundation uses the funds they raise to support Massachusetts-based 501(c)(3) charitable organizations that address housing, hunger, homelessness, and disaster relief. We are proud to continue supporting our fellow Bay Staters.  Click here to see a list of all the charities grants that have been awarded since the start of the program and click here to see how the grants are being used.
