Volunteerism and Community Resources

Eastern Bank volunteers at Habitat for Humanity


The Heart of Our Culture Is Rooted in Volunteerism

At Eastern, our colleagues selflessly give of their time, unique talents and skills to advance the causes they are passionate about. Our collective volunteer efforts create strong, sustainable impact in the communities where we live and work.

Historically, our colleagues have donated more than 50,000 volunteer hours annually, among the most of any Massachusetts-based company. This spirit of generosity brings people together from different backgrounds through a shared interest, creating positive change and transforming lives.

Our colleagues are making a difference through involvement in a variety of organizations, from serving on nonprofit boards, to facilitating financial education workshops, to providing meals at a shelter, to sorting food at a pantry, and reading to students. We are inspired by their dedication and encouraged by their impact.


Financial Education Programs

Eastern Bank supports financial literacy in the communities we serve. By teaching individuals how to save, budget, spend wisely and invest, we improve the financial health and well-being of families by giving them the skills to manage their money responsibly.

Community Rooms

Community Rooms are designated meeting areas within selected Eastern Bank branches for our customers to use. Community Rooms are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Here are a few examples of how our support shows up in the community:

Our colleagues inspect, sort, and package donations to be distributed to children in our communities living in low-income and homeless situations, so that they can thrive at home, school, and play.
