Who We Are
The Essex Savings Bank annually gives their bank customers the opportunity to vote for their favorite non-profit organizations.
Beginning February 1st through February 28th, 2024, customers may vote electronically by visiting www.essexsavings.com or by paper ballots available at the bank drive through lanes.
The Essex Savings Bank’s Community Investment Program donates up to 10% of its after tax net income to many worthy non-profit organizations in the Lower CT River Valley region. The Chester Land Trust has been for years one of the fortunate recipients of these funds. Last year, CLT received $1,092.00 from this program.
CLT needs your vote and your friend’s vote. The more votes the bigger the donation to CLT.
You must have a customer relationship with the bank to vote.
Thank you for your ongoing support of CLT.
