Understanding the value of community
Enterprise Bank plays an active role in bettering local cities and towns
Community service and nonprofit philanthropy are vital ingredients to the success of Enterprise Bank, a mission-driven commercial bank created to make a positive difference in the lives of the individuals, businesses and communities they serve.
Accessible lending programs, financial literacy education, capacity-building programs for nonprofits and a commitment to supporting local causes with time, talent and treasure are just some of the ways Enterprise Bank team members live out the company’s core value of ‘community’ every single day.
Headquartered in Lowell, MA, Enterprise has locations throughout New Hampshire and Massachusetts, including the Essex County communities of Andover, Lawrence, Methuen and North Andover, and is consistently recognized by the Boston Business journal as one of the state’s largest corporate charitable contributors.
Enterprise Bank supports more than 400 organizations and, in 2022, was listed among the top five corporations for highest average hours of community service – with more than 36 volunteer hours per employee.
“Team members are encouraged to get involved in causes and initiatives they are passionate about,” said Alison Burns, community relations and customer experience officer at Enterprise Bank. “They also enthusiastically participate in internal events to raise funds or collect items in the communities where we live and work.”
Each community in which Enterprise operates has its own story to tell about the bank’s local impact – on residents, small businesses and the social challenges they are facing.
“We strive to play an active role in making every community in which we operate a better place to live and work,” said Burns. “Enterprise Bank team members embrace this purpose year after year.”
This year, Enterprise Bank celebrates a decade of partnership with ECCF.
“We are proud of our 10-year partnership supporting the work ECCF does to strengthen communities in Essex County that our Bank is also a part of,” said Burns. “They have an excellent pulse on what is happening in the community, responding to the needs, and inspiring others to get involved – helping to make the communities where we live and work better for all.”
