First County Bank Foundation, Inc.

In ways big and small, First County Bank has been making a difference in your community through the First County Bank Foundation philanthropic efforts.

The Foundation, which was established in 2001 to honor the bank’s 150th anniversary, contributes generously to non-profit organizations that support community and economic development; increase the availability of affordable housing and programs that support quality of life and educational enrichment for families and children.

Its giving reflects the dedication and charitable inclination of First County Bank, its Directors, Corporators, Officers and Employees. As a mutual community bank with no shareholders, First County Bank considers contributions made by the Foundation a means of paying dividends back to the local communities it serves.

Since 2001, the First County Bank Foundation has awarded close to 900 individual grants, worth $5.8 million. The Foundation awarded over 100 grants totaling almost $600,000 in 2013.

The Foundation awards grants based on need, with typical grant amounts starting at $1,000. These grants benefit non-profit organizations that directly impact the health and well-being of individuals living and working in lower Fairfield County. Special consideration is given to agencies and programs that benefit low- to moderate-income populations.

First County Bank is honored to be able to give back to the community not only through our Foundation’s grants and donations, but also through the giving of the time and talents of the men and women that work for us. We are always looking for ways to help the community we call home and find new opportunities to help the causes that mean so much to our customers.
