Monson Savings Bank Encourages Community Members to Vote for their Favorite Charitable Organization
The Bank’s annual Community Giving Initiative returns once again this November, giving the public the chance to choose who will receive contributions in early 2021.
– With the season of giving just around the corner, it seems fitting that Monson Savings Bank is once again reaching out to the public, requesting they submit their votes for the 2021 Community Giving Initiative
For eleven years, Monson Savings Bank has been asking the community to help plan the bank’s community giving activities by inviting people to vote for the organizations they would like the bank to support during the upcoming year. All are welcome to participate and can cast their vote online at the Monson Savings Bank website.

Voters may provide up to three names of organizations they would like the bank to donate to in 2021. The only requirement is that the organizations be designated a non-profit and providing services in Hampden, Monson, Wilbraham, East Longmeadow or Ware. The voting ends at 3:00PM on December 31, 2020
and to be fair the Bank is requesting each person to only vote one time for their three organizations. The bank pledges to support the top ten vote getters and will announce who they are by the middle of January.
Visitors to the voting page can also view a compiled list of organizations that the bank has already supported in previous years and previously nominated organizations.
“We get such positive reactions each year about the Community Giving Initiative when we reach out to the public asking them for their valuable input,” said Steve Lowell, CEO of Monson Savings. “Monson Savings Bank donates over $150,000 to support our communities and their members. By partnering with the community members themselves and gathering their input, we are able to ensure the organizations they most admire will be supported. It is a wonderful tradition that we are happy to continue.”
About Monson Savings Bank
Incorporated as a mutually chartered community bank in 1872, Monson Savings Bank has the longest tenure of service and stability in its market. Civic leaders chartered the bank with the intent to give working men and women the opportunity to save, which – incredibly, they could not do prior to the bank’s inception. Today, Monson Savings Bank retains its legacy of empowerment through savings, but has expanded to serve its customers with a variety of innovative financial services, including digital banking, online mortgage applications and business banking, and commercial lending. The bank has expanded on its promise of “where people save, businesses prosper, and communities benefit” by opening offices in Hampden, Wilbraham, Ware, and most recently East Longmeadow, Massachusetts. The bank also opened a retail and business loan operations center in Wilbraham in 2020. Member FDIC, Member DIF, Equal Housing Lender.
