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 its 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 1,500 local organizations each year that provide services to the communities we serve.

We use our philanthropy, volunteerism, and advocacy to strengthen our communities, to promote civil rights and economic justice, and foster inclusion for everyone. The challenges facing our communities are alarming. The wealth gap is widening, economic mobility is slowing, and opportunities are stifled, especially among communities of color. We champion organizations working to improve economic inclusion and mobility, providing services to people in historically-marginalized communities. 

Our goal:  is to have meaningful impact to help our communities prosper:

(1) Through our financial support of community organizations across our geographic footprint
(2) Through our corporate volunteer events and promoting volunteerism in all aspects with and among our employees, members of our governance, and family and friends
(3) Through our advocacy and through our actions, in connecting community partners, and foster collaborations

We seek to amplify the good that is being done throughout our region by recognizing and celebrating the outstanding work of community leaders and partner organizations through our Celebrations of Social Justice and Community Advocacy..
