For almost 150 years now, Savings Bank of Walpole has been this area’s truly local, community-minded bank. As the only bank headquartered here, we feel a real connection to—and a responsibility for—our community and the people who live here.
We believe engaging with our community is central to the mission and purpose of a community bank—this is a two-way relationship between the bank and our community—a multi-faceted approach where we can do more than meet the financial needs of our community. In addition to providing financial donations and sponsorships, our work includes so much more—we volunteer; we serve on boards and committees; we provide capacity building; we promote community organizations and events; we match staff with opportunities of interest to them; we find opportunities where we can partner and collaborate with our community; and we look for ways where we can strengthen the work of the community – particularly when it comes to supporting local nonprofit organizations and the important ways they make a real difference in our community and in the lives of those who live here.
To that end, we’re proud to share Front & Center in Our Community—Nonprofit Spotlights, profiles that showcase the great work these organizations are doing. Enjoy
