Franklin Savings Bank announced today that it raised over $16,900 for its Granite United Way Pacesetter Campaign. From this total, the bank provided a dollar for dollar matching contribution of over $8,400. As a Pacesetter organization, the bank’s annual fundraising campaign takes place prior to the launch of GUW’s general campaign.

“I am truly proud of the amount we were able to raise for our annual Pacesetter campaign for Granite United Way,” said Ron Magoon, President & CEO. “This was the first time our Board approved a dollar for dollar match from employee contributions to the campaign which far exceeded our initial goal. This is just another example of our commitment to caring for and contributing to the communities we serve.”

The funds raised for Granite United Way will be used to support three community impact areas, including education, income and health across New Hampshire.
