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
For each of the last 26 years, supporting the community for Kennebunk Savings has typically meant sponsoring over 300 nonprofit events and organizing hundreds of bank employees who don their green T-shirts to volunteer at them. However, as the reality of the pandemic set in, the bank quickly realized that the needs of the community were going to shift drastically.
26,590 pounds. $76,000 dollars. That’s how much food and money was collected at Gather’s 6th Annual Fill the Hall food drive, held as always at the historic Music Hall in downtown Portsmouth. This year’s food drive had some creative restrictions such as “curbside” donation drop off and social distancing among volunteer staff, but the numbers speak for themselves.
