Pilgrim Bank Foundation


The mission of the Pilgrim Bank Foundation is to provide financial support to charitable and community service organizations in the communities that are served by Pilgrim Bank. We are dedicated completely to community activities and the promotion of charitable causes.

We focus our support in the following five areas:

Education and Youth Programs

Initiatives at the primary, secondary and post secondary school age levels that raise the aspirations of students in the community, enhance initiatives that support the education process, and support programs that assist in improving the quality of life for children in the community that foster education, learning and leadership in and out of a formal school setting, such as afterschool programs and daycare.

Health and Social Services

Programs that are essential to the health and well-being of the community, as well as initiatives that focus on physical and mental wellness.

General Community

Organizations that support and promote the social or economic well-being of the local community. This would include efforts to support organizations dedicated to homelessness, disabilities, abuse, training and food pantries.

Veterans Programs

Programs that assist in improving the quality of life for Veterans of military service.

Elder Services Programs

Programs that assist in improving the quality of life for older Americans.
