People's United provides charitable contributions in two ways: Initiatives through People's United Bank and grants awarded to eligible nonprofit organizations through our foundations.
To make a positive difference in our communities, we support the important work of nonprofit organizations through charitable donations and cause-related sponsorships. Support by People’s United Bank ranges from localized food drives, fundraising events, marathons and other sponsorship opportunities, to annual company-wide initiatives including:
Annual United Way Giving Campaign
American Red Cross Disaster Relief & Recovery Efforts
American Heart Association Go Red for Women Campaign
Breast Cancer Awareness Project Pink Initiatives
Donation & Sponsorship Requests
Requests for donations, including event sponsorships and program ads, are accepted through People's United Bank's Community Relations Department. To submit a request, please send a completed People's United Bank Donation/Sponsorship Request form, along with supporting documentation , to CommunityRelations@peoples.com.
To help expedite your request, include the name of your organization, and the geographic area (City/State) your organization serves in the email subject line (i.e. United Way – Bridgeport, CT). Please allow a minimum of 6-8 weeks for review and processing.
Our two charitable foundations support the communities where People’s United conducts business, with grants awarded to nonprofit organizations for programs and services that meet our giving guidelines. The overall mission is to:
Enhance the quality of life for residents
Promote the economic development and well-being of neighborhoods
Support the educational and developmental needs of children and youth
