Committing to Our Community
Every year, Chelsea Groton Bank and the Foundation review hundreds of requests for support, from appeals for volunteerism and/or donations, to events and team sponsorships.
We look at each organization’s active non-profit status and – because our goal is to put our dollars to work locally – we determine if our sponsorship will benefit individuals in our community. We also research to see if any of our employees volunteer for the organization. If the answer is yes, we’ll get more details and work even harder to support the request. We strive to make intelligent pledge decisions to support organizations that do the most good with the donations they receive.
For more information and a complete listing of the many groups we proudly sponsored in 2015, please contact Pam Days-Luketich, Assistant Vice President, CRA Coordinator, Community Outreach Officer.
