Introducing Seacoast’s Community Giving Program

We give back, so we can all move forward.

At Seacoast, we are your neighbor and trusted friend. We’re here to help you live the life you imagine and to strengthen our community. That’s why we’ve always given to those in the greatest need. Through charitable giving and community action, we’re helping our neighbors to promote progress and success within the communities we serve. 

We provide funding to direct-service programming that enables worthy endeavors within our business marketplaces. From education-related activities that help kids grow into good business people, to organizations that support affordable housing, to hunger-relief providers that keep families strong and healthy so youngsters can thrive at home and in schools -- we support areas of giving that will reflect the strongest positive impact throughout Florida.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do you define “low- to moderate- income” individuals or families?

Low- and moderate-income is defined as income less than 80 percent of the area median income for the community served.

2. How long does it take for an application to be reviewed?

Grant applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis.  Applicants who apply for funding within the quarter are reviewed in the quarter following.  You will receive a notification of the decision within 30 days after quarter end of the applications funded for the quarter.

3. May I call during the review period to check on my application status?

We respectfully request that you wait until 30 days after the following quarter end of the after submitting the application before calling to check on your status.  In most cases, you will have heard from us within that period.

4. Is there someone locally I can submit my application to?

Please submit your request through our online application.

5. Will someone from Seacoast Bank make a site visit to our organization?

Due to the volume of requests we receive, it is not always possible to personally visit each organization.  When we do make a site visit, they are only to requesting organizations that have submitted complete proposals, or organizations that have previously been funded.

6. If we are declined, may we reapply?

Seacoast Bank receives far more grant requests from worthy organizations than we can support.  If your request is declined, you are welcome to reapply.

A check is normally sent out within 30 days of the approval.
