Provident Bank Foundation
The Foundation was created in 2003 with a donation of stock and cash from the initial public offering of Provident Financial Services stock. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on three areas: community enrichment, education, and health, youth, and families and awards one $100,000 grant in each of the areas under its Signature Grant program. Community enrichment grants support projects that drive economic development, contribute to a more well-rounded community experience, and provide increased access to information and specialized learning opportunities. Education grants support innovative programming that expands access to and improves the quality of well-rounded educational experiences for people of all ages. Grants in the health, youth and families category support projects designed to ensure that people of all ages and means have the ability to improve the quality of their lives including having a safe place to live and access to quality health care. This year, the Foundation will also award up to four $20,000 Impact Grants focused in new geographic service areas resulting from the bank’s acquisition of Team Capital Bank, specifically Hunterdon and Warren counties in New Jersey and the Lehigh Valley and Bucks County in Pennsylvania. Grants are awarded to the communities served by the bank in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Each grant interest has its own deadline date. Check the Web site for additional information and deadlines.
