New Event Sponsorship Application
New Community Donation Application
Rockland Trust’s charitable giving programs and focus areas have changed. Please review the information and the appropriate giving guidelines below for further details prior to submitting an application.
In 2023, we will accept three types of charitable requests for funding: Grant, Event Sponsorship and Community Donation. Please refer to each request’s Giving Guidelines for detailed information regarding the submission of an application and check out our Charitable Giving Program Comparison Chart.
Rockland Trust does not consider unsolicited requests for capital grants.
Grant applications are considered on a rolling basis, however all applications must be received before October 13, 2023 at 5:00 PM EST to be considered for funding in 2023. Our grant application will close after this date, and no further applications will be accepted until early 2024.
Sponsorships are marketing partnerships with an organization that yield visibility for an event to be held on a specific date.
Rockland Trust requires that organizations submit their event sponsorship application a minimum of six weeks prior to your event’s publicity deadline for review and consideration.
Event Sponsorship Giving Guidelines
Community donations are contributions to support programs and fulfill local needs that do not meet Rockland Trust’s grant guidelines and revised focus areas. Community donations are not for date-specific events and support both 501(c)(3) Public Charities and local organizations.
The funding range for community donations is $100 - $5,000, and the majority of community donations will be less than $1,000. Please note: Rockland Trust does not accept requests for in-kind donations through this application.
Donation requests are accepted year-round and considered on a rolling basis.
