Since 1870, Ion Bank has been involved in giving back to the communities we serve to fulfill our corporate mission of making a positive difference in the towns where we live and work.

We partner with a variety of civic and charitable organizations, pitching in where help is needed most to contribute to the betterment of our communities.

Some of the organizations we partner with are Boys & Girls Club, Habitat for Humanity, American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, United Way, Special Olympics, YMCA, Junior Achievement, area food banks, and emergency shelters.
