Charitable Giving Guidelines

Contributing to the success of our communities and its residents is a top priority at Brookline Bank. We have supported many local organizations, and continue to look for ways to be involved with worthy causes and to make a positive difference in the communities we serve.

Outlined below are our Charitable Giving Guidelines:

  • The organization requesting the funds must directly benefit residents of Arlington, Bedford, Boston, Brookline, Burlington, Danvers, Essex, Gloucester, Ipswich, Lexington, Malden, Medford, Needham, Newburyport, Newton, Rowley, Waltham, Wellesley, West Roxbury or their direct neighboring communities.
  • The request must be for a special project or new initiative (Brookline Bank does not offer charitable giving support for ongoing operations).
  • The request must meet a clearly defined need for which adequate support is not otherwise available.
  • The amount requested must be reasonable and in line with the scope of the project or the number of people who will benefit.

Grant requests of $2,500 or greater should use the Philanthropy Massachusetts Common Proposal Form.
