In January 2011 President & CEO William “Bill” R. Eccles, Jr. announced that his first executive order would be to establish a charitable foundation with the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts. The foundation is continually being funded until the goal of $1 million has been reached. The committee advised funds will then be available for distribution to community non-profits at that time.
The mission of the BankFive Foundation will be to provide financial support to the local community, through grants that will enrich schools or other organizations, which service low to moderate income households. The foundation will be dedicated explicitly to benefit the community and the promotion of charitable causes. 
The Foundation will focus its efforts on projects to support education for local public schools, financial youth programs, and health and human service organizations that benefit the elderly, veterans and homeless of our communities.
