Our Purpose

Since our inception in 1855 a lot has changed, but our core values remain the same. We’re here to serve the community, and charitable giving remains central to our identity as a community bank.

Amplifying Our Impact

Each year, we receive numerous requests for financial support. While there are many worthwhile causes, in order to amplify our impact, we try to stay within our areas of focus:

    Hands with heart and house roof above Affordable Housing
    Storefront Economic Development
    Stack of books Financial Education 

We also prioritize organizations where our employees are actively volunteering, and focus our charitable giving on towns where we have branch locations, as well as neighboring communities.
