Home Savings is committed to reinvesting in the local communities it serves by providing leadership, employee involvement and financial support through the Home Savings Charitable Foundation.
Since 1998, the Foundation has provided over $11 million of support to worthy non-profit organizations, with our focus being primarily directed toward those that serve the needs of disadvantaged children and adults or provide educational programs.
The Foundation's commitment to neighborhood organizations is not just a reflection of its mission as a foundation, it is also indicative of the people-focused culture of Home Savings.
In 2013, the Foundation provided a total of $64,500 to United Way and Community Chest organizations in the communities served by Home Savings. Counties benefited included Ashland, Columbiana, Geauga, Huron, Lake, Mahoning, Portage, Richland, and Trumbull.
