From the day Envision Bank first opened its doors, and every day that has followed, we have been guided by our mission to support the communities that we serve, not only by delivering innovative banking products but by nurturing, helping, and partnering with the people and organizations that strive to make our communities better.
This commitment to our communities led to the formation of the Envision Bank Foundation in 2016. Through investments in nonprofit organizations with a focus on support for Veterans and their families, homelessness, education, financial literacy, and meeting the needs of low- and moderate-income families, the Foundation strives to enhance opportunities in the communities we serve. Each grant application is reviewed by our Envision Bank Foundation Board.
The Envision Bank Foundation will make gifts to organizations that are qualified, tax-exempt nonprofits to do work in the communities served by Envision Bank. We serve the eastern Massachusetts region, which includes Essex, Middlesex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Bristol, and Plymouth counties. It is our intention to allocate a significant percentage of grant funds to charitable organizations that benefit the residents of these communities in the following focus areas:
Highest priority will be placed on those grant applications which support our goals and these funding areas. The Foundation has established a set of criteria upon which we focus in order to maximize our impact within our communities.
We place a high priority on organizations that are able to clearly identify organizational goals, present a plan for achieving results, and track outcomes and the impact on the people and communities we serve.
The Foundation does not generally support grants for capital campaigns, endowments, medical or academic research, sectarian or religious purposes, to support candidates for political office, or for scholarships. We do not make grants to individuals.
The Envision Bank Foundation was launched in early 2017, and provides a dedicated source of funds to support worthy non-profits in our market area. The Foundation will prioritize supporting organizations focused on: Veterans and their families, homelessness, education, financial literacy, and meeting the needs of low- and moderate-income families.
The Foundation has made several grants to such organizations: Honor Flight, Mass Fallen Heroes, and Father Bill’s & MainSpring.
