The American Savings Foundation is an independent charitable foundation dedicated to
the community by supporting education, human services, and the arts, with a special emphasis on the
needs of children, youth and families, through grants to community organizations and college scholarships.
The American Savings Foundation has an unusual history of two beginnings. The first was in 1995 when the American Savings Bank launched a corporate foundation, putting into practice its corporate social responsibility and its commitment to the community. Ten years ago, the day the bank merged into another corporation, we re-established the foundation as an independent, private foundation, a legacy of the bank's business success - a force for good and a beacon of hope.
