Your Vote Matters More! Mainers are caring people. More than 100,000 of you voted for your favorite charities last year in the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation's Community Matters More grant-making initiative. We are looking to you, our community, to assist us by deciding how to best distribute $100,000. Bangor Savings Bank is pleased to announce that the 2013 Community Matters More voting begins January 28th and runs for six weeks, ending March 11th. Winners will be announced in early April.Again this year, a total of 68 grants will be awarded to the organizations listed on the ballot and to the top 20 write-in recipients. The organizations in each of the eight regions (including write-ins) that get the most votes will receive $5,000 each. The remaining 60 organizations will each receive $1,000. To vote for your favorite nonprofits, visit Community Matters More or stop by any of our 56 branches statewide. A complete list of voting guidelines and eligibility requirements for write-in nominations are available at www.bangor.com/cmm.We are proud that Community Matters More is now in its seventh year. The success of this annual initiative is made possible because of the commitment Mainers have to their communities and the important role nonprofits play in our state. As Maine's largest independent bank, Bangor Savings Bank is committed to being a strong community partner and a good neighbor throughout Maine. We need your help to make Community Matters More a success in 2013. Thank You!
