As a community bank, we understand and care about the communities we serve and about the community organizations that work hard every day to carry out your mission to support and improve our communities
We meet regularly with leaders throughout our region to understand the challenges our communities face, share best practices and ideas and identify the economic and social trends that impact our community. We work hard to be involved, demonstrate leadership through our actions and be part of the solution. We are here for our community. We are here for you!

Let our numbers tell the story...
While we have been supporting our local communities for the past 175 years, since the establishment of the Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation in 1996, we have worked with our partner organizations to make a significant impact on the economic and social well-being of our neighborhoods, communities and region.
During 2020 we supported our communities in a variety of ways. Through funding collaborations with regional cities, towns and community organizations, to providing direct funding for organizations on the frontlines of the coronavirus outbreak and/or those experiencing financial hardship as a result of the pandemic. We also worked with our vendors to procure much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE) for our local hospitals and distributed face masks sewn by our employees to community organizations. We simply wanted to help … and we still do.
"Bristol County Savings Bank and the Bristol County Savings Foundation have been transformational community partners for Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts and the thousands of students that we serve each year. Their generous support has helped us launch new and innovative educational initiatives and they have supported the capacity of our organization to grow rapidly in recent years. Their commitment to the community is self-evident and we are so grateful to call them partners!"
Jeff PelletierPresident of Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts
"Thank you! Two very simple words, but they are filled with the deep gratitude we possess for your commitment to helping us fulfill our mission of serving students who simply learn differently. Your bank's investment in the work we are committed to doing is both humbling and appreciated. Your recent grant award of $15,000 has allowed us to respond to the immediate overwhelming need parents are facing with becoming their children's full-time teachers since their education is now being delivered remotely to their homes. It also allows us to keep planning and delivering services for our students and their families while supporting our teachers as well. The feedback we have received from families and school systems tells us it has been a life saver to so many families and teachers and has helped them be the best resource to their children and students at this time."

"BCSB’s commitment to our capital campaign to build a new, ADA accessible shelter will increase our capacity to serve survivors of abuse, including those living with disabilities. Over the years BCSB has been a vital partner in expanding our services, most recently partnering with us to expand our Attleboro counseling services via a new office. As a leader in community philanthropy, BCSB’s commitment to our work provides the spark to engage other financial institutions to invest New Hope’s work."
