Florence Bank Community Choice Grants Program

Published on December 24, 2017 by Farah Ameen Uncategorized

Dear Families,

Florence Bank gives away $100,000 each year to community nonprofits through its Community Choice grants program. Florence Bank customers vote for the nonprofit of their choice & all nonprofits getting at least 50 votes receive a grant. Voting is open until December 31: Please vote today! 

Last year (2016), the ARPS PGO received got 52 votes & $947.  Some nonprofits get up to $5,000 through the program. The $947 ARPS received went for classroom support, special projects, and more.

This year, the PGOs of the ARPS PGO (CF, WW, ARMS, and ARHS) are campaigning jointly again to maximize our votes.

Each Florence Bank account holder is eligible to vote once for the community organization of their choice. The ARPS PGO is urging people to vote (at least consider voting for) for the “Amherst Regional Public Schools PGO”, the name of our joint non-profit.

There are 2 easy ways that people can vote:
(1) Online – Visit to view the online voting site & can cast a vote online for the “Amherst Regional Public Schools PGO”.
(2) Paper Ballot. Templates attached. Ballots are also available at Florence Bank location.

Thank you!
