The Provident Bank Foundation will soon begin to accept applications through its Education Signature Grant program.
Deadline: TBA (competition opens in July).
It was created in 2003 with a donation of stock and cash from the initial public offering of Provident Financial Services stock. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded over $19 Million to deserving organizations within the communities the Provident Bank serves in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
PBF expects to make six $50,000 Signature Grants in 2017, two in each of the foundation’s three funding priority areas, to drive meaningful impact. Organizations must be recognized as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and serve communities in New Jersey and/or Pennsylvania. The foundation made about $1 million in grants last year.
