About this funder:



The vision of the Institution for Savings is to positively affect the lives of every person, business and organization within the communities it serves. As a mutual savings bank, the Bank has always believed in dedicating part of its assets toward making the greater Newburyport area a better place to live and work. The Institution for Savings Charitable Foundation was established in 1997 by former President Donald Mitchell as a way to guarantee for future generations the charitable giving that has been the bank's hallmark since 1820.

The Institution for Savings Charitable Foundation provides a vehicle to share the Bank's success with the community that is responsible for that success. 

Focus Areas: The Foundation focuses its giving in the following areas:

Economic and Community Empowerment

This includes programs which focus on the promotion and development of access to safe and affordable housing, and environmental programs which support community revitalization efforts.

Youth Development

Arts & Culture

This includes programs and organizations that provide art and cultural programs that enrich our communities.

Health and Human Services
