Boston – J. Calnan and Associates (JC&A) announced that CEO Jay Calnan was honored at the 2022 RFK Community Alliance Gala with the Embracing the Legacy Award on Oct. 26 at Boston’s JFK Presidential Library and Museum.
Over the years, RFK Children’s Action Corps, now RFK Community Alliance, has sought to celebrate and acknowledge groundbreaking individuals who exemplify the organization’s mission to promote meaningful and sustained well-being for children, youth, and adults facing educational, developmental, mental health, and other challenges.
Calnan has dedicated the last 26 years of his career to philanthropy, including founding Team IMPACT in 2011, which connects children with serious illnesses or disabilities with college athletic teams. The nonprofit creates two-way relationships between families needing additional social and emotional support and college athletes under enormous pressure to perform.
“I am proud to continue RFK’s legacy of creating an impact in the community and accepting this award,” said Calnan. “JC&A has always prided itself on ‘Doing Well By Doing Good’ and I hope to continue this principle throughout our community, workplace, and partnerships.”
Earlier this year, Calnan was also honored with the 2022 Patriot Award at the Seal Legacy Foundation Event at The Encore Boston Harbor.
