Community

With deep roots in the Hudson Valley, we understand the value of caring about the communities we serve. Supporting local is at the heart of everything we do and no local community bank does it better than US.  Whether it’s through monetary donations or volunteering our time, Ulster Savings is here to help where we can.

Why we Give Back

Without you, there wouldn’t be ‘US.’ Our long term success would not be possible without a vibrant community. Did you know Ulster Savings is one of approximately 500 remaining mutual savings banks in the United States? As a community bank, we have no stockholders therefore our profits stay local and are reinvested back into the community in a variety of ways including charitable giving. Where you choose to bank matters!

Where we Give

We support non-profit organizations in the communities we serve with an emphasis on helping causes our employees are directly engaged with. The majority of our management team serves on local non-profit and economic development boards and employees donate their time and effort to various causes throughout the Hudson Valley.

Overall Impact

Ulster Savings is a leader in charitable giving. In 2018, Ulster Savings reached out to more than 265 non-profit, charitable organizations; donated over $351,000, and volunteered thousands of hour to help change lives for the better. Since 2001, when our charitable foundation was created, Ulster Savings has given over $9.5 million dollars. We are proud of our efforts and the significant impact we have made in the communities we serve. Helping community changes lives for the better.
