Greater Giving: Community Impact through Partnership

Learn more about the Grant Process.


Creating a ripple of impact across the community.

Greater Giving Ripple LogoWe are dedicated to our local communities and believe it is our role to support the efforts of those who seek to improve where we live. We realize that community impact is not only an exercise in volunteer hours and money donated, but in our emphasis on community partnerships and choosing to focus our efforts in strategic areas where we can make the biggest difference.

Across the bank, we seek to partner with clients and help them succeed, which is part of earning relationships. We do this through our expert advice, our attention to detail, a willingness to help and take notice, and through in-kind donations. The philosophy behind this Greater Giving program is a reflection of the ways that we strive to impact every community we serve.

As a mutual savings bank, we are not beholden to stockholders, but to you—our community members. Because we are a mutual savings bank, we can, and do, choose a path that doesn’t lead to the biggest profits for stockholders (as we have none), but where we might do the most good for the community while still being fiscally responsible and maintaining a healthy, viable business.

Community impact is the reason Androscoggin Bank exists; to foster your prosperity and the community at large. It’s in everything we do—from the way our employees are involved in community activities and charities, the loans we make which help businesses grow and succeed to the unique home loans that build equity faster and help buffer clients from negative market trends.

Greater Giving is the spirit at Androscoggin Bank--everything we do should  be smart, impactful, focused on the community and have a big ripple effect.
