COVID-19 Donation Update

Newtown Savings Bank has been responsive to the COVID-19 needs of our community by donating funds and supplies to support organizations including United Way and Valley Community emergency funds, Danbury Hospital Emergency Supply Fund, Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust and Connecticut Housing Partnership.  We also conducted several Drive & Drop food collection events and doubled our annual food pantry donations.
 

Donation requests will be considered from local organizations that are providing resources for COVID‐19 relief, particularly in support of basic human needs in the areas of homelessness/housing services, food security, crisis intervention or medical support.

  1. Social Services & Affordable Housing Initiatives 
  2. Education

About the Newtown Savings Bank Foundation

The Newtown Savings Bank Foundation, established in 1998, is a Section 501(c) (3) organization which provides funding to non-profits that support families and individuals with financial need in our communities.

Each year the Board of Trustees approves a budget that represents at least 5% of the fund balance at fiscal year end. The Foundation traditionally provides at least one college scholarship donation annually with each of the Bank’s primary communities, and also provides a donation to at least one social service agency annually, usually a food bank, in each primary branch town.
