Developing Our Communities

Better Serving Every Community

Eastern employees volunteering at Habitat for Humanity

We’re believers in good people who are capable of doing great things. So when it comes to the people behind small businesses, non-profits or the development of affordable housing, we are passionate about supporting their success. Donating more than just money, but our time by volunteering. Opening bank branches in neighborhoods where other banks hesitate to provide financial resources. Championing small business owners and encouraging communities to support them. It means intentionally choosing to be a truly people-first organization, by helping every customer to reach their full potential.

Community Development Lending

At Eastern Bank, we want to be more than just a good bank, but also a bank that does good things to help people prosper. It’s why we’re doing our part to help develop housing solutions for low-to-moderate income families and individuals, support the credit needs of charter schools, health care providers and social service organizations and provide financing to large solar power generating facilities just to name a few.

Our team of lending professionals and experts are committed to supporting the needs of the people we serve through the use of term loans, construction loans and lines of credit so people and businesses can invest back into their communities.
