Funding Priorities

Community Enrichment

The Provident Bank Foundation understands that a vibrant community is the cornerstone of a high quality of life. This is why we invest in those institutions that contribute to a sense of community and offer a diversity of programs that make people healthier, happier and safer. To achieve these ideals and enrich our communities we fund programs that drive economic development, contribute to a more well-rounded community experience, and provide increased access to information and specialized learning opportunities.



The Provident Bank Foundation believes that a good education requires strong academic support and curriculum development. To give people of all ages the tools and knowledge to succeed in an increasingly complex economy, we support innovative programming that expands access to, and improves the quality of, well-rounded educational experiences.
