The Provident Bank Foundation (PBF) announced the recipients of its First Cycle 2017 Major Grants, totaling $176,000 for projects and programs across New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
A Major Grant funds projects and/or programs that address one or more of PBF’s funding priority areas – community enrichment, education and health, youth and families. Major Grants provide between $5,000 and $25,000 in funding, and support organizations that have identified an immediate need in the community and the individuals they serve.
“The organizations and programs funded through this year’s first cycle of Major Grants are nothing short of extraordinary. This year’s recipients are working to improve the quality of life in our communities,” said Jane Kurek, Executive Director, The Provident Bank Foundation. “The Foundation looks forward to seeing how each grant helps to make our communities be happier, healthier and safer – a large part of our mission.”
