Banking on Kindness

At Bank of New Hampshire, our mission is to build brighter futures for our customers, employees and communities. As we live out this mission, we’re committed to supporting impactful organizations throughout our geographic footprint which contribute to enhance the health and vitality of the communities in which we live, work and play. Through Bank of New Hampshire’s Banking on Kindness Community Outreach Program, we invest our time, resources and passion to support efforts to enable safe and vibrant communities for all.


The Bank of New Hampshire Contributions Committee meets on a quarterly basis to review applications for donations from organizations throughout the state. We invest in organizations with a commitment to our local communities and a track record of positive impact.

In order to better serve our communities, Bank of New Hampshire has implemented an annual giving focus to concentrate our donation efforts on a specific need in our communities and to have a greater impact.

The 2023 Giving Focus is Youth Services. The Contributions Committee will give priority to organizations and/or projects/programs that align with this current focus.

Priority will also be given to organizations with a banking relationship and/or employee volunteer/board connection.

Donation Application*


Applications for sponsorships are also reviewed on a quarterly basis. The event date must be at least 30 days after the notification date for the current quarter to allow sufficient time for processing and deliverables. Sponsorship requests are considered equally with a priority given to organizations with a banking relationship and/or employee volunteer/board connection.

Sponsorship Application*

*Please note that an organization may only submit one Donations Application and one Sponsorship Application within a calendar year, and applications must both be submitted in the same quarter.

Throughout our history, Bank of New Hampshire has maintained a strong legacy of community service and civic leadership through countless hours invested by our employees. Playing an integral part in New Hampshire’s growth since 1831, Bank of New Hampshire continues to showcase a strong commitment to the communities across the Granite State, and maintain itself as a strong and stable financial institution.

Bank of New Hampshire’s dedicated and energetic employees live and work in the communities they serve and take great pride in being part of a team that provides superior quality service while building and enhancing relationships with our customers. We are an organization that has high standards with a laser focus on customer experience and a genuine dedication to our employee’s success. With a true passion for community engagement, Bank of New Hampshire employees volunteer for various organizations throughout the state. Pride in commitment, leadership, and community is visible in all that Bank of New Hampshire does. We strive to generate vibrancy and success in partnerships with local civic and community organizations. 

If your organization is in need of volunteers for a specific event or initiative, you can request volunteers from Bank of New Hampshire. As with donations, priority will be given to organizations that align with the current giving focus and that have a banking relationship and/or employee volunteer/board connection. Proximity to a local Bank of New Hampshire branch will also be a strong factor on whether we are able to provide volunteers. At a minimum, all volunteer requests that align with our community outreach mission will be shared with our employees.
