Thomaston Savings Bank Donates $400K to Community Groups
In a second year of unprecedented challenges for Connecticut businesses and nonprofits, the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation made financial contributions to hundreds of community groups.
The foundation donated $406,430 through its three grant cycles in 2021, which were broken down by region.
“We are happy to give back to organizations that do such impactful work for our community,” Thomaston Savings Bank president and CEO Stephen Lewis said.
“It is great to see the bank’s foundation expand over the years to allow us to continue to support the community.”
The most recent grant cycle focused on helping organizations in New Haven County, with the foundation awarding more than $97,000 to 42 groups.
Previous cycles concentrated on helping organizations in Litchfield and Hartford counties.
In deciding which organizations received grants, the foundation reviewed applications from nonprofit and government agencies that focus on arts and culture, community development, education and youth services, health and human services, and public safety.
“We are proud of the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation and grateful for the opportunity to provide assistance where it is necessary,” Thomaston Savings Bank assistant vice president Cheryl Lindstrom said.
“It is wonderful to be in a position to fund the agencies that are working hard to respond to the needs of our communities.”
The first phase of the 2022 grant cycle will concentrate on nonprofits serving Hartford County.
Applications will be considered from April 1 through April 30 from nonprofits in Bristol, Farmington, and Unionville.
