Ponce Bank has a strong commitment to supporting the communities it serves.

In 2017, the bank launched the Ponce De Leon Foundation, which is a 501(c)3 charitable corporation with the aim of improving the quality of life in the communities within the 13 branch locations of Ponce Bank. Every year, the Ponce de Leon Foundation awards grants to local non-profit organizations that create a positive impact in the community. This year, the foundation is pleased to distribute $622,000 to the following deserving non-profit organizations.
