The Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation

The Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation

The Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation is a leader in corporate philanthropy and serves as the charitable arm of Eastern Bank. Since it's establishment, Eastern Bank and the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation have 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 over 1,600 local organizations each year that provide services to the communities we serve.

We champion organizations providing services to people in historically-marginalized communities. We work to ensure that all of our neighbors have equal access to food, shelter, employment, education, child care and other basic necessities of life. 

Our goal: is to support impactful organizations across our geographic footprint. Eastern Bank also believes in the power of recognizing and celebrating the outstanding work of community leaders and partner organizations through our Celebrations for Good.
