Country Bank Supports its Communities with 2023 Donations Exceeding 1.2-million-dollars

Posted on February 16, 2024

Country Bank, a full-service financial institution serving Central and Western Massachusetts, proudly reported more than 1.2 million in donations for 2023. The bank’s philanthropic efforts supported local non-profits throughout its communities, with 463 organizations receiving grants in 2023.

 

In addition to financial support, Country Bank’s team members dedicated their time and expertise to make a difference. They volunteered 1,255 hours of community service, demonstrating their commitment to giving back. Furthermore, 37 team members served on 65 non-profit boards and committees, actively contributing to the success of these organizations.

 

As a community bank, it recognizes the importance of supporting financial literacy; Country Bank held four Credit for Life Fairs for 1,500 High School Seniors to educate them on credit, budgeting, and how their decisions impact their financial wellness. Classes were also held at Christina’s House and within various schools throughout the community. In partnership with Greenlight, the bank launched a debit card for kids to support parents in teaching children early on how to spend, share, and save. The bank also introduced a new program to support financial literacy, Money School, to support local schools with educational opportunities for in-classroom teachings for all ages, and an online financial educational program on the bank’s website.

 

One of the highlights of Country Bank’s philanthropic efforts in 2023 was its partnership with the Wonder Fund during the “Season of Difference” Campaign. This collaboration aimed to support kids and families in Central and Western MA’s Department of Children and Families (DCF) system. By joining forces with the Wonder Fund, Country Bank demonstrated its commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable children and families in the community with over $30,000 in support.

 

Some of the organizations receiving donations were The Ronald McDonald House, Christina’s House, The YWCA, The Boys and Girls Clubs, Behavioral Health Network, The United Way, Salvation Army, The Food Bank of Western Mass, The Worcester County Food Bank, Be Like Brit, Juniper Outreach, Springfield Revitalize CDC, Friends of the Homeless, and 21 Senior Centers and 19 Food Pantries across the region.

 

Paul Scully, President and CEO of Country Bank, emphasized the bank’s dedication to its communities. He stated, “As a community partner, we care deeply about the sustainability of our communities. We are honored to support many organizations through donations and volunteerism to help them with their work. Supporting and enriching our communities is not only a part of our mission; it’s who we are as an organization, and we know that it makes a difference for so many.”
