We’re a community bank, and we’re serious about giving back to our community. That’s why we created the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation in 1997. The mission of the Foundation is to raise and distribute funds annually to local religious, charitable, health, public safety, arts, and educational programs.
The 2015 Grant Applications will be available online after May 1, 2015.
Each year the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation, Inc. reconfirms its financial commitment to the people within our community and are proud of our $5.8 million charitable foundation.
The funds are to benefit the citizens of the Thomaston Savings Bank assessment area
(currently 12 local towns known as our community). The Bank’s establishment of this foundation ensures the community that local charitable needs can be continually met well into the future.
If you think your organization can benefit from a grant, we invite you to apply during our grant application period, which is May 1 through June 30
, with grants awarded in October each year.
In order to be considered for a grant through the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation, Inc., the funds you apply for must be used to benefit residents of one or more of the following towns or defined areas:
Thomaston Savings Bank has successfully served our local community since being founded July 23, 1874. Our Main Office, located in Thomaston, CT, is central to our ten full-service branch offices, including our Commercial and Consumer Lending Offices. The Bank has always been a cornerstone in fulfilling the financial needs of our community. Through the dedication and charitable nature of our Bank and its Directors, Corporators, Officers, and employees we have made a difference in our community, with our volunteerism, donation of time, talents, and energy.
The Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation, Inc. was pleased to provide charitable giving, in the year 2014, exceeding $400,000. The grants awarded varied in dollar amounts, with the average award ranging between $1,500 and $2,000. Now, more than ever, we look forward to our continuous charitable contributions, which will have a positive effect on hundreds of peoples’ lives in our local communities.
This foundation could not have been established if it were not for loyal Thomaston Savings Bank customers that have facilitated the Bank as a leader in the community. We believe this foundation will grow substantially acknowledging our true spirit of giving back to the community we serve.
