Our Charitable Foundations
As of April 2, 2022, People’s United Bank is a part of M&T Bank. The following is an important update on how this change will impact People’s United’s charitable foundations.
As our two like-minded companies come together in support of the communities we serve, the People’s United Community Foundation (PUCF) and People’s United Community Foundation of Eastern MA (PUCF EM) will consolidate with M&T in order to operate in a unified manner as the M&T Charitable Foundation. This change will take effect immediately, allowing us to be stronger together and better support the combined communities we serve.
We are looking forward to combining our organizations, as it represents our shared mission and purpose of working collaboratively with our community partners with a goal of driving positive change to help our communities thrive. You can learn more about our transition plans and our commitment to our communities, in our Letter to our Community Partners.
As we begin our combined charitable giving model under the M&T Charitable Foundation, we are committed to ensuring a smooth transition for our nonprofit partners. To help answer some of your questions, please review the FAQs, which will help guide you in how charitable contribution requests will be handled going forward.
As we combine the strengths of our charitable foundations, we believe our collective approach will also create prosperous opportunities for our nonprofit partners, as we work together to remain trusted sources of support for our communities.
We value our partnerships and look forward to continuing to work with you to deliver on our collective purpose of making a difference in peoples’ lives throughout the communities we serve. Thank you.
