BERLIN – Clinton Savings Bank matched all tax-deductible donations up to $10,000 in support of the Triple Match Campaign held in the month of December for 19 Carter in Berlin.
Back in 2008, a few neighbors formed a non-profit organization to purchase and renovate the Old Methodist Church in the Berlin town center and make it available to the community for daily use.
19 Carter opened its doors in 2017.
“We are beyond thrilled with the continued care that Clinton Savings Bank provides to the community,” said Evy Dueck, Executive Director. “We heard from many patrons how pleased they were about Clinton Savings Bank’s support of 19 Carter. Their participation was a big factor in making this campaign such a success, exceeding our expectations raising over $45,000 for 19 Carter.”
Every dollar donated during the campaign became a $3 contribution thanks to matching gifts from Clinton Savings Bank and an anonymous donor.
“Giving is not just about donating. It is about making a difference, which is what a community Bank is all about,” said Robert J. Paulhus, Jr., President & CEO of Clinton Savings Bank. “19 Carter is a place that connects people from all walks of life while maintaining a historic community place.”
