Overview:

The mission of the Merrimack County Savings Bank Foundation is to provide financial support to not-for-profit organizations that enrich and improve the quality of life of the residents living in the bank’s service areas. It was the donor bank’s intent to see that regardless of economic ups and downs, funding to these organizations be made available. While the bank’s service area at inception was Merrimack County, as the bank grows it will serve more communities, and, therefore, the Foundation’s geographic reach may continue to expand as the bank enters new markets.

Merrimack County Savings Bank was founded in 1867 to serve the people of Concord, New Hampshire and the surrounding counties. From that day to this, The Merrimack has remained a mutually-owned institution, directed not by a group of outside stockholders, but by the people who matter most - our customers, our employees and our community.
