Charitable Foundation

Providing economic and community development throughout our region

Skowhegan Savings is a caring, committed member of the communities where our customers live, work, and raise their families. To strengthen and enhance these communities, we support charitable giving, sponsorships, and employee volunteer efforts. While we are committed to a wide range of organizations and programs throughout the region, we are particularly focused on financial literacy programs and Economic and Community Development, including programs that promote job creation, business retention, business growth, and community enhancement. Skowhegan Savings will consider requests that fit within the following guidelines. 
 
  • Requests that have a broad impact on the communities within our service area will be a priority
  • Non-profit organizations will be given priority and proof of 501 (c)(3) tax status should be provided
  • We will give priority to requests that promote education, particularly in the area of financial literacy
  • Community and Economic Development programs that bring business and jobs to our communities will also be a priority
Although we realize there are many worthy causes seeking funding, as a general rule, we cannot make contributions to the following:
 
  • Individuals or programs that benefit specific individuals (with the exception of approved scholarship programs)
  • Religious organizations
  • Labor organizations
  • Political candidates or campaigns
  • Endowment funds
  • For-profit businesses or organizations
