MSB in the Community - Moving Maine Forward

You’ll find Machias Savings Bank branches clear across Maine, from Portland to Presque Isle. And you’ll find us giving back to those communities: volunteering for local nonprofits, visiting area schools to teach financial literacy, supporting local businesses, writing PPP loans, and so much more.

Community-minded doesn’t begin to describe it. At Machias Savings Bank, we are completely obsessed with lifting up the wonderful Maine cities, towns, villages, and even townships where we live and work. We support the schools, business ventures, nonprofit organizations, artistic endeavors that make Maine communities so special—whether those businesses and organizations bank with us or not.

If you are improving the lives of Maine families, you can count on us to care. And during this unprecedented pandemic, we’ve powered up our efforts even further.

This legacy of philanthropy and community began in 1869 and has taken on new urgency as the economic challenges of fighting coronavirus continue. Entrepreneurship and Small Business support and investment was a 24/7 priority as we secured more Payroll Protection Program loans on a pro rata basis than any other bank in the state; over $159 million for 2,218 businesses. And we didn’t stop there!

Since March 14, 2020, Machias Savings Bank has distributed over $300,000 to community initiatives addressing food insecurity, housing challenges, mental health, and innovative small business assistance.

Some of our recent recipients include Good Shepherd Food Bank, Portland Public Library, Heart of Ellsworth, and Avesta Housing. *

Machias Savings Bank supported businesses and individuals through the 1918 pandemic and we are determined to help Maine communities to come through the COVID-19 crisis intact. Our Rapid Response Funds and Building Resilience in Business grants are an ongoing commitment to standing by our friends and neighbors and offering a helping hand. If you’re interested in learning more about our grant and donation opportunities, please contact Melissa Denbow, VP Community Experience Manager at MDenbow@MachiasSavings.com.

Machias Savings Bank also supports communities through sponsorships in support of affordable housing, the arts, children, civic and economic development, education, and more.

We are proud that our sponsorships play a part in the vibrant, lively community spirit Maine is known for. Learn more about how to apply for a community sponsorship.

Some of our recent sponsorship recipients include the Maine Chamber of Commerce, Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce, and the Maine Institute For Family-Owned Business.

We are committed to advancing financial literacy in Maine.

Helping our friends and neighbors achieve their personal and professional financial goals is the great work of our lives, and we believe the sooner Maine children learn how to make money work for them the more successful they will be. Our skilled Relationship Bankers visit local schools, hold webinars, and host seminars focused on sharing practical and powerful financial know-how:

  • Learn To Save - Lessons for grades preK-12
  • Junior Achievement - Lessons for grades 3-12
  • How To Do Your Banking - Basic banking instruction
  • Identity Theft - What to do if your information has been compromised
  • Balancing Your Checkbook - Seminar on checkbook basics

We provide all necessary materials and make fiscal responsibility come alive in-person or onscreen. (To request an educational visit or webinar, visit our website.)
