Bangor Savings Bank has been a frequent supporter of Maine Audubon programming, and now you can vote for Maine Audubon to receive a grant from their Community Matters grant-making initiative.

How you can help:

  1. Go to the Community Matters More page and write-in Maine Audubon as your vote for a grant.
  2. Or, stop by any Bangor Savings Bank branch and inquire about voting in the Community Matters More grant initiative
  3. Share this with your friends and ask them to write-in Maine Audubon!

From Bangor Savings Bank:

Mainers are caring people. More than 100,000 of you voted for your favorite charities last year in the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation’s Community Matters More grant-making initiative. We are looking to you, our community, to assist us by deciding how to best distribute $100,000.


Bangor Savings Bank is pleased to announce that the 2013 Community Matters More voting begins January 28th and runs for six weeks, ending March 11th. Winners will be announced in early April.


Again this year, a total of 68 grants will be awarded to the organizations listed on the ballot and to the top 20 write-in recipients. The organizations in each of the eight regions (including write-ins) that get the most votes will receive $5,000 each. The remaining 60 organizations will each receive $1,000.
