About this funder:



Note: You must call Liberty Bank Foundation before you apply to determine if your program or project is a good fit within our funding priorities, and whether it makes sense to apply. We can also provide guidance as to how much is reasonable to ask for


The Liberty Bank Foundation was established in 1997 as an extension of Liberty Bank’s commitment to the Connecticut communities the bank and its employees have served since 1825. We feel that, as bankers, we have a responsibility not only to provide excellent financial products and services, but also to make our communities better places to live and work. Through our Foundation, we support nonprofit organizations that our neighbors depend on to build strong families and communities. Our grantmaking is focused on organizations that serve people within Liberty Bank's market area.


The mission of the Liberty Bank Foundation is to support preventive programs that assist low- and moderateincome residents of Liberty Bank’s market area in achieving their personal goals and reaching their potential. We advance this mission by providing financial support to nonprofit organizations and by acting as a philanthropic leader in the communities we serve.

Funding Priorities

We recognize that all too many Connecticut families still live just one missed paycheck away from economic disaster. The foundation’s goal is to assist low- and moderate-income families to improve their economic situation and quality of life. Toward that end, our grantmaking will focus on the following priority areas: 

  • Preventive education programs that lead to economic success for children and families
  • Affordable housing and ending homelessness
  • Building the capacity of nonprofits engaged in the first two priority areas
  • Large-scale food programs for people in crisis
