We hope you will join us for our annual Celebration of Social Justice on October 28, 2019. This year, our celebration focuses on Enriching Early Childhood Development, and we honor Ron Ferguson and The Boston Basics.
We recognize the importance of each child getting the best possible start in life. That’s why, this year, the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation (EBCF) is investing $1 million in grants to nonprofit organizations working to enrich early childhood development within Eastern’s footprint, and our support of this issue will extend into 2020.

The Celebration of Social Justice continues our longstanding tradition of recognizing the good in our communities. The annual Social Justice Award recognizes individuals and/or organizations that have achieved outstanding success in addressing critical social justice issues. We are delighted to recognize, this year, the vital and ground-breaking work of The Boston Basics and the leadership and important contributions of its creator, Professor Ron Ferguson.
EBCF’s focus on enriching early childhood development is an important part of our overall annual giving this year, however, it is not the only way that Eastern strengthens communities. In 2019, our donations will exceed $10 million and we will support more than 1,600 organizations throughout the Eastern Bank footprint and donate over 50,000 hours of employee volunteer time. to learn more about our charitable giving.
Join us October 28 to celebrate the good works of Ron Ferguson and The Boston Basics.
