Foundation Grants

General Contribution Philosophy

As a community bank, our contribution efforts are focused on benefitting our community’s youth, education, financial wellness, arts, housing, community growth and stability, and economic development.

Foundation grants are offered to organizations whose work benefits disadvantaged populations in communities served by Dedham Savings, that are requesting funds for one-time identifiable capital expenditures or projects, and have not requested funding in the past 24 months.

Because when we build each other up, we can all stand stronger.
