The Foundation

Apply for a Donation from the Putnam Bank Foundation

Aside from the community involvement and support Putnam Bank and our staff members provide, we also help charitable organizations in our communities through the Putnam Bank Foundation. The foundation was established to help support cultural, educational, housing, health, social services and other types of charitable organizations working to make our communities better places to live.

The focus of donations from the Foundation is more on project support rather than for general operating expenses or “bricks and mortar" supplies. By making donations to local charitable organizations, the Foundation is working to strengthen the connection between Putnam Bank and the communities we serve.
