Sovereign Bank Foundation

The Sovereign Bank Foundation, (the Foundation) makes charitable contributions to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. The 2011 funding cycle is now open with a deadline of March 15, 2011. Foundation resources are allocated with priority given to requests benefiting low- and moderate-income individuals and communities.

Foundation contributions are considered for programs that enrich a child's educational opportunities, such as school programming and curriculum development from outside organizations and after school programs, in addition to early childhood development, and special education programs, with preferences given to those programs targeting low-and moderate-income communities.

This funding source seems like a sweet fit for our Student IT Education & Scholarship (SITES) program on a local or national level.

2011 Grant Making Calendar - Applications must be postmarked by March 15th; Organizations will be notified by April 15th.

Is your chapter co-located with Sovereign Bank? More importantly, does your chapter have a Sovereign Bank account or membership that works for Sovereign Bank?

This opportunity appears to be a nice fit for chapters in Sovereign Mid-Atlanta region (PA, NJ or MD), New England region (MA, CT, NH or RI) or Metro-New York region (NY). By my count, we have eight chapters (Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Baltimore, Boston, Hartford, Rhode Island and New York) that are eligible for consideration.
