In 1999, the Board of Directors established a charitable 501(c)(3) foundation with an initial grant from the Bank. This Foundation was established to allow Eastern Connecticut Savings to support the communities it serves by providing grant funding to area charitable and non-profit organizations.
To apply for a grant, applicants must be a non-profit organization qualified as exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(c)(3) and governmental units referenced in Section 170(c)(1) serving one or more communities in the market area Eastern Savings Bank serves. Grant applications are accepted from November through March 31 each year with distributions of grants in June.
