We give to the community because we're part of the community

From our very start over 150 years ago, giving back to Vermont communities has been an integral part of our values. Every year, we pay a "community dividend" through our commitment to donate 10% of our annual earnings to local non-profit organizations.

In 2020, Northfield Savings Bank contributed more than $600,000 to more than 200 non-profit organizations in Vermont. And we are proud of the fact that in 2015, Northfield Savings Bank was awarded an outstanding rating by the FDIC on our community reinvestment efforts. Additionally, employees dedicated more than 3,200 personal volunteer hours in 2019 to organizations within the following areas of need:

  • Human Services
  • Programs for At-Risk Youth and Low/Moderate Income Families
  • Education
  • Arts and Culture
  • Environment
  • Economic and Job Development
  • Animal Welfare

You, our customers, are an important part of our team—simply by banking with us you are helping make Vermont a better place to live and work.
