While Kennebunk Savings' operations have been adjusted in light of the current and ever-changing COVID-19 situation, we continue to process grant and sponsorship applications through our Community Promise program.
While there may be a slight delay dispersing donations, please know that we are here and our commitment to our community remains steadfast through these challenging times.
Celebrating over 25 Years of our Community Promise
In 1994, we made a promise to our community to give 10% of our annual earnings to local nonprofit organizations through our Community Promise program. Well, we’ve kept that promise and so far, we’ve invested $14 million in our neighbors. We believe that giving back is just the right thing to do.
Grants & Sponsorships
Since 1994, we've given over $14 million in grants to local organizations—and we're not even close to being done! We connect with and invest in those making a positive impact in our communities.
The Spotlight Fund was created to shine a light on a widespread issue affecting our communities and support that cause. Each year, a portion of our Community Promise is directed to the Spotlight Fund.
The Huntington Common Charitable Fund
The Huntington Common Charitable Fund is dedicated to programs that help seniors in York County live healthy, fulfilled lives. Each year the Fund issues grants to qualified organizations serving York County residents aged 65 and older.
Part of our Community Promise is encouraging our employees to share their time and talents with the people and organizations that make our communities great. Each year our employees devote thousands of volunteer hours to worthy local causes—whether it’s clearing nature trails, assisting in classrooms, or serving meals at soup kitchens. Building and sharing in vibrant community life is important to us.
Recent News & Events
In April of 2020, you can guess that the bank tellers, managers and loan officers at Kennebunk Savings are making fabric masks, items now in high demand as protection against sickness. Inspired by a new non-profit that makes masks for virus protection, the seven employees at the Eliot bank branch have made 200 masks during their workday since the bank effort began earlier this month.
Kennebunk Savings ended 2019 with a record $1 million in donations to area nonprofits. The bank hit this momentous milestone back in December with a $25,000 donation to Kennebunk Elementary and helped the school move closer to breaking ground on their ambitious, inclusive playground project.
