We’re proud to be part of the North Country community and even prouder of our commitment to giving back to the place we call home—and the people we call family.


There’s more than one way to serve your community. Here at Northern, we’re community caregivers; so we volunteer our time, money and talent through events, integrated programs and sponsorships.

2021 Was a Very Good—and Giving—Year!
In fact, during 2021 Northern gave back in more ways than ever:

  • 57 Financial Education Partnerships including Adulting 101, Mad City Money and Banzai courses provided
  • $12K in Scholarships to Local Area Students
  • $189K in Local Nonprofit Donations and Sponsorships
  • 120 Local Organizations Supported
  • 183 First Time Homebuyers Helped
  • 16 Casual for a Cause Recipients
  • 135 Teachers Supported Through Wishes For Teachers

We welcome you to join us at one of our local events or lend a helping hand to one of the amazing organizations Northern currently supports (many of which are listed below).
