Lewis, President & CEO, Thomaston Savings Bank

The Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation was created in 1997 to distribute funds annually to a variety of local programs. Each year, the Foundation hosts a grant cycle to provide funding to organizations that are assisting the community in their respective counties. The funds are used to benefit local organizations to ensure that charitable needs are met throughout the towns which the Bank serves.

 “The Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation is an ideal channel to further propel the Bank’s mission to give back and fulfill the needs of those we serve. The Foundation, fully funded by the Bank, has awarded an incredible 7.5 million dollars since its inception. I consider it a privilege to represent both the Bank and the Foundation’s continuing work to ensure the charitable needs of our neighbors are met year after year.” – Cheryl Lindstrom, Community Outreach Officer, Thomaston Savings Bank
