Bank Asks Community to Decide How to Spend $100K for Nonprofits 

Bangor Savings Bank is asking the public to help it spend $100,000 to support nonprofit groups around the state.

It’s part of the bank’s Community Matters More program.

Throughout February, you can vote for your favorite organizations.

48 are listed on the ballot. All of them will receive $1,000 from the bank.

The top vote-getter in each of eight regions will also get $5,000.

Lisa Bird, with Bangor Savings Bank, “If you have a favorite non-profit that is not listed on the ballot, you can write them in. The top 20 write-in votes will receive a $1,000 grant.”

You can vote at any Bangor Savings branch.

Or you can go online to

Voting ends at the end of February.

The winners will be announced in April.
