MORRISTOWN, NEW JERSEY (March 17, 2020) - The Provident Bank Foundation (PBF) today announced its grant opportunities for the second cycle of 2020. The Foundation awarded $1.3 million of total funding to nearly 140 organizations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in 2019 and is pleased to create additional opportunities this year.

  • Community Enrichment: Programs that drive economic development, contribute to a more well-rounded 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.

“We are pleased to announce our second cycle of Major Grant opportunities, as we continue to help fund local organizations that are making a real difference with quality services, programs and care,” said Samantha Plotino, Associate Executive Director of The Provident Bank Foundation. “Helping people remain happy, healthy and safe, the Foundation is thrilled to support local organizations, so that they can continue to enrich and enhance local communities in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.”
