Manasquan Bank Charitable Foundation, an affiliate of Manasquan Bank, brought local organizations together for its third quarterly Charitable Foundation meeting of 2017. The breakfast event was a chance for community members to learn more about Manasquan Bank’s philosophy for its future success and commitment to its community-based partners. It was also a great opportunity for each organization receiving a foundation grant to tell their story and explain how the new grant will assist in the achievement of their overall mission. The meeting was very collaborative, as participants had the opportunity to interact with James S. Vaccaro, President and CEO of the Bank, and ask questions about the Bank and its service model.
Manasquan Bank’s management team kicked off the morning’s event, where team members provided an overview of the business and cultural opportunities the bank and its Foundation hope to be able to impact during 2018. To support the major initiatives of their non-profit and business partners, the bank plans to “provide the stimulus for growth through its lending, depository and community-based activities,” according to Vaccaro.
Notably, at the breakfast event, those receiving an annual grant from the foundation included CFC Loud N Clear Foundation, RallyCap Sports, Wall Soccer Club, Social Community Activities Network – SCAN, Make-A-Wish New Jersey, Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus, Monmouth County Historical Association, Visitors Nurse Association Health Group, Allaire Community Farm, Academy Charter High School, Sunshine Girls, Stomp the Monster, Just Us Girls, Brick Rotary Club, NJ Coalition Against Sexual Assault, IHN of Ocean County, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation – New Jersey Chapter, Crimson Knights Foundation, John Callahan Memorial Sailing Fund, and The Arc of Monmouth, Inc.
In addition to the quarterly meetings, Manasquan Bank holds a town hall-style meeting for its existing customers, as well as potential business customers, each month after hours at a rotating branch location. Contact your local branch manager to learn more.
