Community banks take great pride in supporting the communities in which they do business. As Community bankers we focus on building relationships with not only our Customers but the communities they live in and serve. At MidCoast, we are proud of our involvement with our local communities. We are dedicated to strengthening and improving these communities through partnering with local charities, employee giving and volunteering along with providing needed financial services and education.
Employee Giving Program
At MidCoast Community Bank we understand the importance of empowering our employees to make decisions on where to direct our charitable resources. Our employees are able to support the groups and charities that impact their local communities though the bank’s Employee Giving Program. This program allows each employee of the bank to identify a charity of their choosing and a donation is made in that employee’s name by the bank.
MidCoast has several charitable partnerships that we work with and support. These are groups and organizations that serve the local communities where we do business. By supporting these local groups we can help them reach their goals and grow their work in the areas they specialize in. Here are just a few of the groups we partner with:

Bank at School Program
MidCoast is proud to be part of Delaware’s Bank at School Program. This program teaches students financial management, using hands-on techniques and partnerships between students and banks. Students have the opportunity to open free savings accounts, make weekly deposits and serve as junior tellers. This program sets the groundwork for the communities’ youth to be responsible savers and planners.
