Monson Savings Bank Announces $15,000 in Donations as 2024 Community Giving Initiative Votes are Tallied

The Bank’s annual Community Giving Initiative calls on the public to submit votes for local charities that they want the Bank to donate to in the coming year.

The people have voted, and the results are in! In late 2023 Monson Savings Bank asked its community members to cast their votes for their favorite, local non-profit. Monson Savings Bank is now announcing the 2024 Monson Savings Bank Community Giving Initiative Recipients.

This was the fourteenth year Monson Savings Bank ran its Community Giving Initiative poll. The public’s excitement to cast their vote has grown throughout the years. This year, nearly 7,000 votes were received.

“Everyone’s passion for our annual Community Giving Initiative is always so exciting!” beamed Michael Rouette, EVP and Chief Operating Officer of Monson Savings Bank.  “As a locally operated bank, Monson Savings has a great desire to support the residents, businesses, and non-profits, of the communities that we work in and live in. Our Community Giving Initiative offers an opportunity for our community members to have their voice heard and decide the non-profits they would like to us support. Because our neighbors voted for these charities, we know that these charities can make a difference for our neighbors.”

Now that the votes have been calculated, Monson Savings Bank is preparing to donate a generous total of $15,000 amongst the top ten vote recipients. Monetary donations are one of the ways the local bank fulfills their enduring mission of supporting Western Massachusetts communities.

“These organizations are worthy non-profits that supply important resources to our communities. It is clear why they were chosen by our community members to receive support from Monson Savings,” said Dan Moriarty, President and CEO of Monson Savings Bank. “On behalf of Monson Savings Bank, I congratulate the top ten recipients of the 2024 Community Giving Initiative and I thank you for making Western Mass a better place to live!"
