St. Mary’s Bank’s Announces the 603 Account

Reflecting its longstanding commitment to the communities it serves, St. Mary’s Bank recently created the 603 Account, a unique checking account that benefits both those who open—or convert to—this account and New Hampshire non-profits.

When individuals use their 603 Account debit card to make a purchase, St. Mary’s Bank donates $0.0603 to a non-profit organization within the categories of Animals, Children & Families, Environment, and Food & Shelter. For every new 603 Account, St. Mary’s Bank will provide an environmentally-friendly New Hampshire tote bag as a gift while supplies last. The totes are made by Enviro-Tote in Londonderry, New Hampshire.

“We are thrilled to offer this new account that enables members to experience all the benefits of banking with the nation's first credit union while assisting local nonprofits,” said chief operating officer Ken Senus.

Current charities include NHSPCA (Animals), Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of New Hampshire (Children & Families), Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests (Environment), and New Hampshire Food Bank (Food & Shelter). The credit union will donate up to $5,000 to each non-profit and plans to present checks in June.

At account opening or conversion, individuals select the specific charity category to receive the donation. A different charity may be designated each year.

“It is easy to set up an account or convert an existing account,” added Senus. “St. Mary’s Bank is happy our new initiative will have a positive impact in our community.”
