Whether through business contributions, event sponsorship, or employee participation, Murtha Cullina and its employees support initiatives that improve the quality of life in their communities.

Murtha Cullina Scholarship Funds

Several years ago Murtha Cullina made the decision to turn the tradition of holiday giving into scholarship funds benefiting inner city children. In Connecticut, scholarship funds were set up at The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. The income of the fund is to be distributed annually to support scholarships to post-secondary institutions (accredited colleges or universities) for needy students from the Hartford and New Haven areas (with a preference for students from each city).

With the firm’s presence in Boston, Massachusetts, Murtha is proud to support uAspire. With sites in Boston, Springfield and Lawrence, uAspire’s mission is to ensure that all young people have the financial information and resources necessary to find an affordable path to – and through – a postsecondary education. uAspire partners with schools and community-based organizations to provide free financial aid advice and advocacy to young people and families to help them overcome the financial barriers to higher education.
