In 2005 the Foundation provided support for the Jewish Community Center of Staten Island's new Flagship Community Center to be built on Manor Road.

In the facility, the Richmond County Savings Foundation Health and Fitness Wing is utilized by hundreds of Staten Islanders on a daily basis. The gyms within the wing enable both children and adults to partake in various sports activities such as basketball leagues, soccer, volleyball, tennis and pick-up basketball games. Children and adults of all ages and abilities participate in instructional swim classes, aqua Zumba or enjoy family swim activities. The Fitness Center’s doors open at 5:30 am to accommodate pre-workday workouts. Whether choosing to take part in a fitness class, work with a personal trainer or use the many cutting-edge pieces of exercise equipment, the gym offers Staten Islanders the opportunity to pursue a healthy lifestyle.
