I have worked for Martha's Vineyard Bank for 17+ years and am proud of their commitment to the community. The bank encourages employees to be involved in giving back to the community by offering a program that allows us to choose a charity of our choice to receive a donation to be made by the bank. In addition to that, the bank has a matching donation program. I am honored to work for an organization that is so invested in giving back to the communities where we work.
