We’re part of the same Hudson Valley you are.

We pride ourselves in being involved in our local community and supporting local businesses, through volunteerism as well as monetary support. Sawyer Savings Bank employees take part in many local events and work to support numerous non-profit organizations each year. Every Friday is Sawyer Spirit Friday, where our employees wear something blue and happily acknowledge customers who do the same. Every other Friday is “Casual for a Cause,” where employees dress casually to raise awareness and contributions for a cause chosen by them. For more information on some of the worthy organizations that Sawyer Savings Bank is proud to support, see below!

The Sawyer Savings Charitable Foundation

Throughout its growth, Sawyer Savings Bank never lost sight of our mission of supporting our local communities and serving others. While celebrating our 150th anniversary in 2021 we had the honor of donating $150,000 to local non profit organizations. The overwhelming feeling of gratitude for giving back to our community in such an immense way resonated with the Board of Trustees and staff. As a result, we are pleased to announce that Sawyer Savings Bank has finalized the process of forming our very own Charitable Foundation. We are honored to share with you it’s new mission:

The mission of the Sawyer Savings Charitable Foundation is to reinforce, encourage, and support our ongoing commitment to the well-being of our community.

The Foundation actively seeks and focuses on contemporary programs that provide a measurable impact across the communities that it serves. Our goal is to enhance the efforts of not-for-profit groups, institutions, schools and other organizations who are working to solve unfulfilled needs through innovative thinking and programs. We do this to help strengthen families and build prosperous communities in the Hudson Valley.

By the formation of this Foundation, we are committing to a wide range of organizations and programs throughout the region, including programs that promote job creation, business retention, business growth, and community enhancement. We look forward to sharing and working with those in our community on this new initiative to help make our community even stronger.
