The mission of the Massachusetts Service Alliance is to generate an ethic of service throughout the Commonwealth by creating and supporting diverse, high quality service and volunteer opportunities for all age groups, resulting in stronger communities and more active citizens. Established in 1991, it was one of the first state commissions on community service in the nation. In 1993, federal legislation was adopted, creating the National & Community Service Trust Act. The national AmeriCorps Program was modeled after quality service programs developed here in Massachusetts. The Alliance works in collaboration with service partners, both public and private, across the state, including: the Massachusetts Department of Education, the Massachusetts Department of Employment and Training, and several key private organizations United Way, the Corporation for National Service, Northeastern University's Massachusetts Promise Fellowship), and Tuft University‚Äôs Jonathan M.

The PRIT Fund was created in December 1983 by the Legislature (chapter 661, acts 1983) with a mandate to accumulate assets through investment earnings and other revenue sources in order to reduce the Commonwealth's significant unfunded pension liability, and to assist local participating retirement systems in meeting their future pension obligations.
