The purpose of the Foundation is to provide funding to support charitable causes within the Bank’s market areas and its neighboring communities. This support will include, but not be limited to, providing grants to or for, community development, housing assistance, local education, not-for-profit community groups, cultural organizations and similar types of organizations or projects designed to improve the quality of life within the Bank’s local community.

Equitable Bank has a rich history of community involvement in the communities it serves. This commitment was recently strengthened with the establishment of the Equitable Bank Charitable Foundation.

Giving Focus

Equitable Bank Charitable Foundation is keenly interested in funding community development via affordable housing, job training, and programs that assist the economically disadvantaged. We believe that education of our youth is our future and special emphasis will be given to educational efforts. 

Programs providing continued quality health care and supportive human service programs are also a priority. We also will support local cultural groups and institutions knowing these grants will broaden access to cultural and art activities and will enhance the quality of life in the communities in which Equitable Bank operates. Most importantly, your request should be clear, well thought out, and contain realistic and measurable goals.
