Over $1,000,000 invested in our community since 1999!

The Hancock County Savings Bank Charitable Foundation was established with the mission of promoting charitable and educational service organizations and their activities. Funding for the Foundation is primarily from contributions by Hancock County Savings Bank as part of its Mission, which includes a commitment to “making our community a better place to live.”

The Foundation generally provides funding in areas such as seed money for startup costs of new and innovative programs, human services or educational programs, capital and equipment needs, matching grants, and one-time grants for programs not requiring refunding. Grant applications must be submitted by September 30 of each year, and awards are announced soon after, celebrated with a presentation ceremony. Do not be intimidated by the application process, you do not have to be a grant-writer to complete the process. We are here to help not hinder!
