Grants of up to $25,000 to New Jersey, New York City, and Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations for programs, projects, and initiatives that enhance the lives of residents in eligible regions. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to a full grant application. Funding priorities include community enrichment, education, and health, youth and families. Eligible areas are communities in New Jersey, New York City, and Pennsylvania that are served by Provident Bank.
The goal of the Major Grant is to support organizations that have identified an immediate need in the community and for the individuals they serve. PBF seeks programs, projects, or initiatives that will make a meaningful impact on the communities that Provident Bank serves. Requests that detail reliable methods for measuring change over time will have a competitive advantage, as will those that offer a regular and sustained presence in the lives of program participants.
PBF seeks to build relationships with organizations that have the capacity and drive to create systems change.
Organizations applying for a Major Grant must measure their program’s impact in a manner that aligns with one Funding Priority Area:
Community Enrichment: Programs that drive economic development, contribute to a more wellrounded community experience, serve those with special needs, and provide increased access to information and culture.
Education: Innovative programming that expands access to, and improves the quality of, well-rounded educational experiences through strong academic support and curriculum development.
Health, Youth & Families: Programs that ensure people of all ages and means have the ability to live healthier, more fulfilling lives, including access to quality healthcare, nutrition and wellness, and mentorship opportunities.
