Ion Bank Foundation Announces Community Awards Program Winners

The Ion Bank Foundation announced the winners of its Community Awards Program at a special ceremony last evening at the 87 Church Street, Naugatuck branch. We received 2,449 customer votes for 134 non-profit organizations which allowed us to award grants totaling $62,100.

The program, which kicked off in February, encouraged Ion Bank customers to vote for a local charity of their choice to receive a grant from the Foundation.

“This program is a wonderful collaboration between our customers, Foundation and the organizations that our customers feel have the most impact to local communities,” said Charles J. Boulier III, Ion Bank President and CEO. “Our customers are very passionate about their local charities and this program is a wonderful way for them to recognize those organizations and have a say in how our Foundation’s funds are distributed.”
