New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp (NHMB) was recently awarded with the Granite Award from Granite United Way. NHMB contributed more than $140,000, which included employee donations and matching funds from NHMB and its three subsidiaries: Merrimack County Savings Bank, MillRiver Wealth Management and Meredith Village Savings Bank. The amount raised also includes sponsorships and CDFA tax credits for the Whole Village and the Bridge House energy project in Plymouth.

As part of NHMB’s commitment to non-profit agencies in the communities it serves, matched contributions were distributed through the Granite United Way evenly among 20 non-profit agencies selected by employee vote. The following non-profits each received a donation of $2,374.
