In 2004, the Savings Bank of Danbury Foundation was established to support local non-profit agencies that reflect the core values of the Bank. The Foundation provides grants to support a wide range of initiatives and programs in the areas of Affordable Housing, Arts & Culture, Community Services & Economic Development, Education, and Health & Human Services. Since its establishment, the Foundation has awarded more than $2.25 million to organizations making a positive difference in our communities. This year's total represents an increase of 3.39% in contributions over the previous year.
"As a community bank, it is important for us to do more than provide quality banking services, we must also be good neighbors and citizens and give back to the communities we serve," stated Martin G. Morgado, President and CEO of Savings Bank of Danbury. "At Savings Bank of Danbury we have always put a strong emphasis on community service, team building and cultural activities that promote a positive work environment inside and outside of the Bank. We are fortunate to have assisted these wonderful community organizations in a very challenging year."
