Watertown Savings Bank (WSB) is proud to be a responsible corporate citizen, and good friend to the community. We focus donations and sponsorships on organizations that promote affordable housing or provide programs directed at low to moderate-income individuals/households. In 2016, WSB donated $350,000 to nearly 400 local organizations. Click here to see a sampling of the many fine local non-profits we support.
We honor hundreds of requests for donations per year. As that number steadily grows, to ensure that we continue our tradition of community involvement, and to comply with Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) regulations, we have established a set of guidelines.
- Organizations and/or their members that have a relationship with WSB will be given priority.
- Donations are restricted to non-profit organizations headquartered in areas where the bank is located (Arlington, Belmont, Lexington, Newton, Waltham, and Watertown).
- We do not provide funding to individuals, or religious or political groups.
- Requests are reviewed by committee on a monthly basis.
- All requests must be submitted in writing at least one month ahead of the deadline.
- Organizations should complete a Request for Donations form.*
