Building Community, One Town at a Time
In addition to our employees’ volunteer work and the many ways the Bank directly contributes to our communities, Dedham Savings also has the Dedham Institution for Savings Charitable Foundation. The Foundation serves the communities of Dedham, Westwood, Norwood, Walpole, Needham, Sharon and surrounding towns by providing monetary grants to non-profit organizations.
The Foundation will consider all non-profit causes possessing a 501(c3) designation. Grants are given to organizations twice a year, in December and June. We strive to choose organizations that vary greatly in the services they provide to communities ranging from education, health care, theater, the arts, assisting the disabled and many, many more.
Applications are due by October 31 for December grants and April 30 for the June grant cycle. To obtain an application, please call the Dedham Savings Charitable Foundation phone line at 781-329-6700 ext. 711 or stop by the Bank’s Main Office at 55 Elm Street, Dedham and ask for Jerry Lavoie, Trustee.
