Employee Directed Donations and Trustee Directed Donations help us set the tone that we truly are a community bank -- We support our employees and trustees, and our employees and trustees pay it forward to their community.
Each year, employees and trustees are given the opportunity to direct donations to a non-profit of their choice within the community footprint that Martha's Vineyard Bank serves. Employees are able to author a letter stating that they appreciate the work of their chosen non-profit and that they are directing their allotment of funds to that particular organization.
In addition to Employee Directed Donations, Martha's Vineyard Bank Charitable Foundation matches up to $400 of giving per employee per year. For example, if an employee donates $400 to his or her favorite non-profit, the Bank's namesake Foundation will match that contribution and the employee's favorite non-profit ends up with a $800 donation.
Our employees are willing to walk a mile to help a neighbor.
The talent and generosity of our employees extends far and wide and we encourage employees to support organizations that are important to them. Martha's Vineyard Bank offers employees four hours of paid time off to volunteer for a local charity, non-profit organization (NPO), or community event.
