Blue Foundry Bank announced fourth quarter donations of more than $55,000 to 122 local non-profit organizations. This brings the program’s total contributions, in its 14 year existence, to greater than $3.9 million.
Those organizations receiving funds are members of the bank’s long-standing Community Alliance Program (CAP). The initiative is an exclusive benefit to Blue Foundry Bank account holders, which allows them to easily support their favorite non-profit organization simply by holding an account at Blue Foundry Bank and designating it to an enrolled CAP organization. The program is completely confidential and all donations come directly from the Bank.
“The Community Alliance Program achieved notable success during 2019, as it continues to benefit local organizations,” said Debra Cannariato, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Blue Foundry Bank. “We have always been committed to enhancing the opportunities and well-being of our neighbors and customers. We are certain that the $55,000+ dispersed amongst our regional member organizations will do just that.”
The Lyndhurst Police Emergency Squad is one of 367 organizations currently enrolled in CAP. They have earned an impressive $41,334.41 in the eight years they have been involved in the program.
“Lyndhurst Police Emergency Squad (LPES) has enjoyed a long and prosperous relationship with Blue Foundry Bank and the Community Alliance Program,” said Tarcisio Nunes, LPES Captain. “Thanks to the rewards received through the program, we have been able to make a significant difference in the communities we serve – purchasing radio equipment, a load system stretcher, an auto pulse device and much more. This would not have been possible without the funds we receive through the Community Alliance Program”.
