About the Rogerson Legacy Society
In 1915, Charles E. Rogerson, then president of the Boston Safe Deposit and Trust Company, and his son, attorney Charles M. Rogerson, founded the Boston Foundation (under the name “Permanent Charity Fund”) to encourage charitable giving in the Greater Boston community. The Rogersons sought to build an endowment to improve the quality of life for the people in and around Greater Boston. The Rogerson Society is named for them.
