Commitment to Community
WCB operates differently than many banks by placing greater emphasis on its efforts within the community.
WCB is a proud sponsor of Authorfest
WCB is a proud sponsor of Authorfest, a valuable event brought by Winchester Foundation for Education Excellence (WFEE) that encourages students to develop a love of reading and illustration. This year, Authorfest sessions were conducted virtually throughout January.
Caren Connelly, Executive Director of WFEE said, “Winchester’s students and educators were so excited that Authorfest went virtual! Missing this community tradition in a year full of loss would have been very hard. Thank you so much to the Winchester Co-operative Bank for providing the funding that allowed us to keep this tradition alive!

WCB supports the local Salvation Army
WCB once again matches local Salvation Army Kettle drive contributions. We contributed an additional $5,000 to The Salvation Army, more than doubling the amount contributed to the locally sponsored 2020 Kettle drive. “With less red kettles in our communities, this holiday season looked very different for The Salvation Army,” said Major Marcus Jugenheimer, General Secretary, The Salvation Army Massachusetts Division. “We are so grateful for partners like Winchester
Co-operative Bank for continuing to step up to help our struggling neighbors in their greatest times of need. Because of their generous support, we were able to serve up to 155% more people this holiday season.”
