The Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation (EBCF) 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 1,600 local organizations each year that provide services to the communities we serve.

Throughout 2019 and 2020, Eastern will provide donations, volunteerism, and advocacy on key issues to support organizations working to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity for a bright future.  Research shows that birth to age 5 is a critical period in the development of every child.  It’s a time when a child’s loving relationships and interactions with their environment set the formative foundation for robust social/ emotional and intellectual development.  

Over the past few years, we have focused our Impact Giving with organizations addressing social issues such as advancing women, immigration, strengthening families, and gun violence prevention. Learn more about Eastern Bank’s Charitable Giving.
