From day one, Beneficial State Bank has been committed to supporting our community above and beyond its lending by providing sponsorships to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations each year. Historically we have provided the equivalent of 10% or more of Beneficial State Bank’s profits. That’s ten times the U.S. average corporate giving of less than 1% (0.76%).
In 2020, we will continue to help the bank provide sponsorship to 501(c)(3) organizations in California, Oregon, and Washington that are engaged in transformative social justice and environmental work in our target sectors:
Affordable and Multi-family Housing
Arts, Culture and Community Building
Education and Youth Development
Beneficial Financial Services
Economic, Business and Job Development
Making, Manufacturing and Production
Health and Well-being (non-food)
Other Mission Categories (Business Ownership, Structures and Practices)
The Foundation does not currently provide program grants or donations, and the Foundation cannot sponsor individuals. We choose to make small sponsorships available to many organizations; most of our sponsorships from 2013 through 2019 were less than $1,000.
