The Provident Bank Foundation announced Thursday that its most recent grant cycle was its largest ever, with $385,000 awarded to organizations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
The grants bring the foundation’s 15-year total of giving to more than $25 million for not-for-profits in the two states. Its Major Grants support organizations that serve an immediate need in the community in one of three funding priorities: community enrichment; education; and health, youth & families.
“The Provident Bank Foundation is honored to help further initiatives that are making such a difference in the lives of residents in our local area,” Jane Kurek, executive director, said in a prepared statement. “We are pleased to support organizations that contribute to a sense of community and offer a diverse set of programs that make people healthier, happier and safer.”
