FSB in the Community
Together we can make magic happen!
For over 150 years, we have been deeply committed to the communities we serve.
We live, work and play in the communities we serve. They aren’t just locations, they are our home, and we are proud to call them our banking footprint. For over 150 years we have partnered with organizations to help make our community great. Our employees give countless volunteer hours to local events, and we financially contribute wherever possible. We are proud to be a community bank.

Fund for Community Advancement
Supporting community projects. Enhancing lives.
Spaulding Youth Center
Humane Society for Greater Nashua
The Franklin Savings Bank Fund for Community Advancement was formed in 1997 to provide support for substantial projects that will significantly enhance the lives of people in the communities that make up the primary market area of the bank. Currently, the areas served by the Fund include Boscawen, Bristol, Franklin, Gilford, Goffstown, Merrimack and Tilton. The Fund may also provide support for projects in other surrounding communities. Grant monies requested must provide support to those living in the communities listed above; although not exclusively as many projects have a broader geographic impact that will benefit those in other communities as well.
The Fund is very active in supporting a broad range of community activities. Eligible organizations must be recognized as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or be a school, municipality or other subdivision of government. Categories of support include but are not limited to: affordable housing, health care, social services, arts and humanities, human services, and programs or services addressing the needs of children, adolescents, elders and single parent families. Priority consideration will be given to those programs and services that address the needs of low to moderate income families and individuals. The minimum grant award will generally be $1,000 up to a maximum of $10,000.
To apply for a grant award from the Franklin Savings Bank Fund for Community Advancement, please complete an application. The Fund will award grants once a year with applications due no later than May 30th each year.
