Coins for a CAUSE

In addition to its Charitable Foundation giving, the Institution for Savings annually distributes more than $15,000 to local area elementary schools through its Coins for a CAUSE (Coins Add Up to Support Education) initiative. Under this program, the public pays a 5% fee to use the coin machines in any Institution for Savings office. The Bank then donates 100% of fees collected each month to a different area elementary parent-teacher organization. 

Public elementary schools in the following communities receive these funds: Amesbury, Newburyport, Salisbury, Rowley, Boxford, Middleton, Ipswich, Topsfield, Hamilton, South Hamilton, Wenham, Beverly, Salem, Gloucester and Rockport.
