Vermont Business Magazine Bennington Jim Brown, chairman of the Bank of Bennington, announced this week that the bank has completed its 2021 annual donations to food cupboards and community fuel funds before the end of the year. In 2021, the Bank of Bennington donated more than $ 25,000 to more than 20 organizations across the region in 11 cities.

Mainly supporting the good work of food cabinets and heating assistance programs, these November and December donations help low-income Vermonters during the holidays and beyond the winter. President Brown said, “We are committed to building stronger communities in our region. Our corporate structure as a mutual bank means we have no shareholders, and our dedication is to our clients. We believe these donations make a real difference throughout the community. “

Over the past twelve years, the Bank of Bennington has shown its commitment to the residents of the towns it serves by donating over $ 800,000 to area nonprofits to support the needy, the arts, children and education.

The Bank of Bennington is a mutual bank deeply committed to the region. It is the only bank based in Bennington County, Vermont, and has branches in Bennington, Arlington, Manchester and Rutland. For more information, call 802.442.8121 or visit online at
