As a multi-year supporter of TRA, Santander has, to date, provided $22,000 in grant monies to purchase online software subscriptions for TRA’s statewide education programs. On an annual basis, over 750 participants are benefiting from this partnership.

“At Santander, we are committed to giving back to the communities where our customers live and work. We’re proud to support such an impactful organization and one that is successfully improving work opportunities and economic outcomes for so many underserved young people and adults in Massachusetts,” said Sarah Lindstrom, region president for Santander Bank’s Southern and Western New England region.

Santander Bank is one of the country’s top retail and commercial banks by deposits and a wholly owned subsidiary of Banco Santander - one of the most respected banking groups in the world. With its corporate offices in Boston, Santander’s 670 plus branches and nearly 2,100 ATMs are principally located in the northeastern United States.

TRA is a private, non-profit organization with over 40 years’ experience providing education, employment, skills training and workforce development services to educationally and economically disadvantaged youth and adults.
