Community Sponsorship/Donation Guideline
Beverly Bank is honored to be a part of the North Shore and has been giving back to its communities for 129 years. Due to the many requests received for donations and sponsorships, we have established eligibility requirements and submission guidelines. Each submission is evaluated by the Community Support Committee, and while we’d like to accommodate all requests, unfortunately, not every one can be granted.
General Contribution Philosophy
As a community focused bank, Beverly Bank’s contribution efforts are focused on the areas of youth, education, arts and community development. We support programs that make an impact on the health and safety of our youth; programs that foster academic achievement for our students; community based arts organizations that lend to our diversity and culture; and organizations that promote wellness, stability, adequate housing and growth, particularly those benefiting low-to-moderate income individuals. In addition, we support organizations which promote economic development and organizations which promote a positive climate for businesses within our communities. Beverly Bank’s employees volunteer in their communities and we are grateful that we can help and support the communities in which we work and live.

All requests must be submitted on the Beverly Bank Sponsorship/Donation Request Form. Applications should be submitted at least 60 days in advance of the event or required funding. Please allow a minimum of 30 days for your request to be reviewed and for a response to be given.
