Overview:

Charitable Giving

The Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation is a leader in corporate philanthropy and serves as the charitable arm of Eastern Bank. For almost 200 years, Eastern Bank has contributed to the health and vitality of the communities we serve. This is evidenced through our extraordinary commitment to provide financial support to organizations throughout our footprint. We do this by funding local organizations providing services to the communities we serve.

Grant for Good

We focus our giving on supporting organizations that provide services to the underserved and neediest members of our community. We work to ensure that all our neighbors have equal access to employment, education, healthcare, housing, childcare, healthy meals and other essential support services.

Our goal is to support impactful organizations across our geographic footprint, contributing to the health and vitality of the communities we serve. We prefer to make smaller grants rather than a few large ones to increase the number of organizations and communities served. 

Grant Program: Neighborhood Support Grant

This program supports organizations within any community served by our bank that do not have 501(c)(3) designation. Typically this includes fundraisers, local youth-related activities, chamber of commerce events and other efforts that improve the fabric of our neighborhoods.

There is no minimum or maximum dollar value for support in this category, but the average gift is $500. Requests reviewed monthly. Applications for events should be submitted at least 60 days before your earliest print deadline.
