Charitable Foundation

The Canton Association of Business & Industry Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization working to make Canton a better community for both businesses and residents. We support civic bodies, such as the Canton Police and Fire Departments, as well as fund scholarships for students of Canton High School and Blue Hills Regional Technical School who are actively involved in the community.

CABI contributions were instrumental in establishing the Canton Youth Commission. We have sponsored Massachusetts Hospital School (now the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children) students for their annual trip to Disney World where they utilize the independent living skills they have learned in school. Our contributions to the Canton Food Pantry have helped feed many of the local families in need with more than $10,000 donated in recent years. CABI is proud to be a valuable resource within our community.

  • CABI’s Tom Clark Annual Golf Event has contributed tens of thousands of dollars for local charities.
  • CABI’s Canton Road Race raises money for local charities and builds goodwill within the community.
  • CABI hosts social gatherings where members and government officials can network and discuss items of mutual concern.
  • CABI supports the Canton Police and Fire Departments with essential equipment and training to support public safety.
  • CABI’s contributions to the Canton Food Pantry have helped feed local families in need.
