The Rockville Bank Community Foundation, Inc., was created in 2020. The original Foundation was created in 1998 by Rockville Bank. The Foundation changed its name in 2014 following a strategic merger of Rockville Bank and United Bank. In 2019 United Bank was acquired by People’s United Bank, and the decision was made to separate the Foundation and change its focus to the legacy Rockville Bank footprint.

The Rockville Bank Community Foundation (RBCF) is committed to improving the quality of life for families in the communities it serves – Vernon/Rockville, Tolland, Manchester, Somers, Coventry, Ellington, South Windsor, East Windsor, Suffield and Enfield. Consideration is given to organizations and programs which promote and support community development and benefit disadvantaged or low to moderate income families in the areas of:
