Through the generosity of its customers, Franklin Savings Bank is pleased to announce that approximately $5,000 has been donated to local charities through its Buzz Points program. Introduced in July 2015, Buzz Points is a debit card rewards program that incentivizes customers for supporting the local community by choosing to shop locally. Participants in the program accumulate points, which can be redeemed towards rewards at Local Preferred Merchants enrolled in

the program or to a charity of one’s choice.


“As a community bank with strong ties to the communities we serve, it is truly heartwarming to learn that our customers are also paying it forward in an effort to help others,” said Ron Magoon, President & CEO. “When we were looking to launch this unique program almost two years ago, we were intrigued with the concept of being able to support the local community by encouraging customers to support local merchants. Having the ability to donate points towards charitable causes is another fine example of how we can extend our support to the nonprofit community to support all the good work they do.”


FSB was also the winner of a “Redeem for Charity” holiday donation campaign in December facilitated by Buzz Points.  For the second year in a row, the bank was the leader out of 21 other financial institutions across the country with the most points redeemed to local charity. Buzz Points awarded FSB with a $1,130 donation to be split amongst nine local charities that are part of the program to include Bristol Community Services, Franklin Animal Shelter, FSB Charity Softball Tournament, Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction, Mix 94.1 FM Cash-N-Cans, PermaCity Life, Tiny Twisters Child Care Center, Twin Rivers Interfaith Food Pantry, and the Winnipesaukee River Trail Association.
