[HARRISBURG, PA] – Orrstown Bank, headquartered in Harrisburg, PA, recently donated half a million dollars to 47 local organizations across southcentral Pennsylvania. The bank gives back in this way four times per year as part of Pennsylvania’s Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program.
The EITC program is a way for approved companies to lower their tax liability through contributions to K-12 private schools, scholarship organizations, pre-K programs and other education enrichment initiatives. During this round of charitable giving, Orrstown chose to support several organizations including libraries, education foundations, girl scout troops and science centers among many others.
“Part of the Orrstown mission is to make a positive impact on the quality of life throughout our market footprint,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Tom Quinn. “By supporting organizations that address local humanitarian and civic needs, we are contributing to the joint mission we have with many local partners of developing our future leaders. Giving back to the community has been part of Orrstown’s DNA since the bank was first established”.
As a community bank, Orrstown is committed to strengthening the communities it serves. Lending to local businesses to advance growth, providing mortgages to families who dream of home ownership, or making contributions to local institutions that champion charitable causes are a few examples.
Headquartered in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, with additional regional executive and administrative locations, including Harrisburg Pennsylvania, Orrstown Bank has grown to 21 banking offices and four business offices across 10 counties in Pennsylvania and Maryland. With $3 billion in assets, Orrstown Financial Services, Inc., the parent company of Orrstown Bank, is one of the largest independent community banks headquartered in the region and is publicly traded on the NASDAQ market under the symbol ORRF.
