The Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation was established as a non-profit charitable organization in 2006 by the Board of Trustees to further the philanthropic mission of Centreville Bank.


The Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation's goal is to partner with local non-profit organizations that work to strengthen, grow, and contribute to the well-being of the communities that we serve. We invest in a way that engages our employees; promoting progress and prosperity across Rhode Island. The Foundation provides financial support through in-kind contributions and grants. Our employees support the community through volunteer efforts. They provide manpower and talent to make many of our sponsored community initiatives and events a success. The Foundation is focused on supporting community renewal efforts, affordable housing initiatives and programs that serve low to moderate income individuals with a focus on health and human services. 

The Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation has established the following guidelines for grant requests:

Requests must be made in writing and include:

  • A completed Grant Application
  • A cover letter on the organization's official stationary stating the amount requested and the purpose of the funding
  • A brief description of the organization's mission, history, and accomplishments
  • A copy of the organizations IRS 501(c)(3) ax exemption letter and W-9

The Foundation does not normally contribute to:

  • Fraternal or Alumni Organizations
  • Individuals or programs that benefit specific individuals
  • Political Organizations
  • Religious Organizations (some secular community service programs such as soup kitchens and shelters are eligible, even when sponsored by religious organizations
  • Talent or beauty contests

Review and Considerations:

  • Requests are accepted on a continuous basis throughout the year
  • Please limit one request per calender year, per organization
  • The Charitable Foundation may limit funding support to a maximum of three consecutive years with a one year moratorium after the third year
  • All decisions will be communicated in writing directly to the requestor
