The Richmond County Savings family's roots in the Staten Island community go back to when the Bank first opened its doors in 1886. Richmond County Savings Bank has grown and branched across the Island and is now a division of New York Community Bank.
In 1998, the Richmond County Savings Foundation was formed:
• To share with the community part of the financial success of Richmond County Savings Bank as a community minded financial service institution.
• To enable the community to share in the growth and profitability of the Bank.
Richmond County Savings Foundation has established itself as a leading philanthropic institution in the Staten Island community and beyond. We invest in projects that offer dimension to our community and programs that offer choices and services.
The Foundation supports places within our community where people are nourished, students learn, patients heal, nature is enjoyed, culture is explored, seniors' lives are enriched and human services are offered.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR BOARD
In 1998, the Richmond County Savings Foundation celebrated its first year of granting by awarding over $1.65 million. Today, our giving has grown to over $60 million invested in our communities. As impressive as we believe these numbers are, they do not begin to tell the story of the Foundation’s true accomplishments.
Those accomplishments are witnessed in the capital projects we have supported, the programs we have funded, the people we have partnered with who offer hope.
The Foundation remains committed to our mission and to using our resources wisely. Our giving philosophy is simple: Social responsibility coupled with fiscal accountability.
We are proud of our progress and look forward to the opportunities and challenges of the future.
