“Several of the non-profits recognized here today are first-time grant recipients. That tells me there are more and more organizations doing their best to make a positive impact in greater Pawtucket and throughout Rhode Island,” said Murray. “As we are a community bank, our focus is on supporting the neighborhoods in which we serve. We continue to be inspired by the work of these charitable organizations.”

 

Bristol County Savings Bank has always been an active supporter in the communities in which it serves. The establishment of the Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation – Pawtucket Advisory Board was announced at the grand opening of the Bank’s Pawtucket office in 2001 in an effort to demonstrate the Bank’s commitment to its new market. At that time, $1 million was contributed to the Foundation to provide grants to 501(c)(3) organizations which operate exclusively for charitable purposes within the City of Pawtucket. The BCSCF has donated over $2.6 million to organizations in the Pawtucket area since its inception.
