Organizations include:

Bais Tova received a grant to help with general operating expenses for the private, K-7 school of more than 1,000 female students. The grant, pledged over five years, follows a grant awarded in 2008 to fund playground construction. 

The social services agency Bikur Cholim was awarded a grant to enable the program’s disabled and elderly clients continue to live an active lifestyle.  In 2011, a grant was awarded toward the acquisition of a wheelchair-accessible van to transport disabled clients to doctor appointments, therapy, and dialysis. 

Grants to Chai Lifeline helped the organization in the pursuit of its mission to provide social, recreational, and financial support for families with seriously ill children. Chai Lifeline operates 24 distinct programs for ill children and their families, includingCampSimcha, a no-cost, overnight summer program for children with cancer and other serious diseases.

Investors Foundation awarded a grant to Kimball Medical Center Foundation in support of the Foundation’s Annual Gala and earmarked to benefit its Women’s Center. Located onRiver Avenue in Lakewood, Kimball Medical Center is a fully accredited, 350-bed acute care hospital affiliated with Barnabas Health. 

Misameach received a grant to help initiate an arts and crafts program and DVD library for patients involved in the volunteer-run outreach program, which provides recreational, entertainment, and support services for seriously ill patients. Additional support was awarded in 2011 to expand the organization’s abilities to provide outings and parties for children, as well as expand its audio and video library. In 2012, a grant helped launch a new craft center and a gift-giving program. 

A grant, pledged over three years, helped Services for Children with Hidden Intelligence fund the purchase of a new handicapped-configured school bus.  An additional four-year,  grant was awarded in 2012 to purchase an innovative piece of outdoor swinging equipment designed to accommodate wheelchairs. Founded 17 years ago, SCHI is a state-approved private school that provides educational and support services to handicapped underprivileged children throughout the tri-state area. 

The Special Children Center received a grant to help fund the construction of a new facility to provide respite and support programs for children with serious developmental disabilities.  An additional grant, awarded in 2010, helped support the organization’s general operating costs.  Founded more than 17 years ago, the Center serves more than 250 families with its after-school programs and other support services. 

A grant from the Investors Foundation was awarded to Tomchei Shabbos Lakewood, doing business as Family Food Relief of New Jersey. Additional funding was used to help alleviate the organization’s rising budget given an increase in families applying for assistance. Since its inception more than 22 years ago, Family Food Relief has grown to provide support for more than 7,000 families. 

Hatzolah EMS, the only all-volunteer paramedic squad in New Jersey, featuring more than 50 volunteers and a fleet of seven ambulances and two paramedic vehicles received support from Investors.

  1. I say this every time: what they do for the community is amazing. I spoke at the misameach check-receiving event at the clifton Ave branch a year ago & the mgr he would come w/ us to the homes of sick children to give them gifts. These are special people who run a great bank. We should all move our accounts there. And, of course, Srully Rothstein is from the nicest bankers u will ever meet. Thank you, Investors. Dudi b

  2. This is huge. I’ve realised this several times. There are big-boy banks here in town, Chaize, Wells Forgot, Bank of Amerigos, Teedle-Dee who have assets in the Billions & I never, EVER see them at ANY local event giving a donation of any kind. Maybe they do, secretly, but we don’t see it. Investors, Rocks, baby. DB4. Not RG3.
