Introducing: The Giving Tree
Our charitable giving program is called “The Giving Tree,” reflecting the roots we have in our communities, our commitment to making a real difference in the neighborhoods we serve, and our belief that we can enhance everyone’s quality of life if we work to solve our biggest problems—together.
Since 1865, we’ve held a longstanding tradition of supporting local communities and lending our neighbors a helping hand. It’s who we are.
As a community bank, we’re committed to providing community banking services; reinvesting those deposits in loans that support local economic growth and job creation; and giving back generously to the many neighborhoods around us through charitable donations and other community support.
We carry that tradition with us as we venture into each new neighborhood. From employees generously donating their time in the communities where they live and work, to the bank’s continued support of local non-profit, civic, and educational organizations, we want to make a real difference and ensure the neighborhoods we call home flourish.
Making a Lasting Impact
In 2021 alone, bankHometown’s The Giving Tree has donated nearly $280,000 to organizations that enrich lives and bring people together. Since 2015, we’ve donated more than $1.7 million to help enhance the quality of life across Central Massachusetts and northeast Connecticut. During that time, our employees have contributed thousands of volunteer hours to causes they care most about.
No matter how life changes over the years, one thing will remain the same: our commitment to helping our communities unlock their potential and to making them even better places to live and work.
