As a community bank, founded on cooperative principles and neighborly values, we are dedicated to giving back to local and nonprofit organizations.
You’ll frequently find our officers and staff rolling up their sleeves to volunteer with community groups and organizations. We don’t just allow volunteerism—we encourage it.
We are mindful of our participation in the local economy, so giving back also means buying from community-owned businesses whenever we can. We patronize local businesses, who do the same in turn, so more of everyone’s money stays in our community.
Recently, we were recognized as the #1 bank in Western Massachusetts for Community Contribution by Banking New England Magazine. And our long-standing efforts under the Community Reinvestment Act continue to be a point of pride.
