Message from the President

Our success continues to fund the Essex Savings Bank Community Investment Program, comprised of up to 10 percent of our after-tax net income that has been distributed to over 200 different qualified non-profits in our community over the years.  Consequently, the better we perform in any given year, the better our community does through this partnership.  Since inception in 1996 the Bank will have contributed over $5 million, of which a portion was based directly by customer ballot selections. Additionally, our staff, by volunteering at an event or serving on a board, continues to support numerous local nonprofit and civic groups such as the Shoreline Soup Kitchen, Habitat for Humanity and local Rotaries in both official and informal capacities.

We never lose sight of our forefathers’ goal – striving to build long-term relationships and maintaining a safe financial harbor for the long haul.  We thank our clients, directors, trustees, officers and staff who support our mission to continue to provide valued service and trust to our community.
