Charitable Giving

Needham Bank and our Charitable Foundation work together to ensure equitable support of the non-profit organizations serving our communities. Our giving focuses on 4 core areas: affordable housing, health and human services, arts and education and community development. Within those areas, we take special interest in organizations that are improving social justice and helping underserved populations in our assessment area.

If you represent a non-profit organization and would like to request funding from Needham Bank and our Foundation, please review the requirements below and use our form to request support.

How to Request Support

Needham Bank and the Needham Bank Charitable Foundation work hand in hand to provide financial support through sponsorships and grants. There is just one application to apply for funding through the Bank and our Charitable Foundation. Simply fill in the details about your request—we’ll determine which funding source aligns best with your needs. This streamlined approach allows us to better evaluate all our partnerships in one place.

Your submission must be completed at least 60 days before the funds are needed to give ample time for review and decisioning. Once your request has been received, a Needham Bank representative will reach out to you if additional information is needed.

Giving back goes beyond financial support. Our employees share our community-focused values and are eager to help support our partners through volunteer work. In 2023, we packed hundreds of meal kits in partnership with local food pantries, provided basic necessities and school supplies to underserved populations and volunteered at events raising money for our partners. 

Financial Wellness

It’s never too early to start learning about financial wellness and developing good money habits. We work with non-profits and schools to support financial education efforts with workshops tailored to your group’s specific needs. To request financial education for your group, please email to get started.
