Community Kangaroo

Shopping local makes a difference.

We like to think of every day as an opportunity to support local businesses and organizations. Luckily, many people share our sentiments.

Often referred to as the Shop Local or Buy Local movement, there are widespread and undeniable benefits in a shared commitment to support our local merchants. We see this trend gaining considerable momentum in the communities we’re so privileged to serve. This movement is more about what’s good for a community and its residents, and less about global retailers extracting money from our towns.

As your community bank, we’ve proudly taken the lead on supporting our local merchants and organizations. We also believe that buying local extends to banking local.

When local residents choose to bank with us, we like to think we are creating a "virtuous circle." The dollars deposited at Needham Bank are used to increase our capital, and in turn are reinvested directly into the community by way of financing local construction, businesses and homeowners. The bank is also able to donate both money and volunteer time back into the local community to further the locally impactful initiatives we all care deeply about.

As our business continues to grow, we will continue to be able to do more for our community. In just this year alone we will continue our support of over 300 different community organizations.

We are ever mindful that our customers have choices when it comes to banking and that our success is directly tied to exceeding our customers’ expectations. That’s why we prefer to offer straight-forward banking solutions which avoid fees and build long term, mutually beneficial relationships.
