Our Community

Franklin Savings Bank is a true community partner. As a mutually-owned, community bank, we are proud to support the community beyond offering loans and attractive rates. In fact, we feel a true community partner is one who has a vested interest in seeing their community prosper and thrive. Without our support, many of our local organizations would not be able to continue their causes.

Providing donations is important; however, we like to become involved in the projects we support to ensure they meet the needs of our community. Therefore, in 1997, we created the FSB Fund for Community Advancement with the sole purpose of supporting projects that will improve the well-being of individuals throughout the Central Lakes Region and into the southern region of New Hampshire. To date, we are pleased to have awarded 187 grants totaling over $896,692 to numerous community organizations. We understand what it means to be a community bank and our employees do too!
