Community Involvement and Philanthropy

Community banking

Having been part of the community for over 165 years, we are proud of the designation “Community Bank”.  We understand the needs of our region and advise and tailor our banking products to provide individuals, families, businesses, non-profits, and municipalities the deposit and loan services they need.

Economic development

Small business loans, deposit relationships, and our small business toolkit are just some of the ways that Lowell Five fosters local business and job growth in our region.  If you own or are thinking about opening a business, Lowell Five can provide the financing to help you succeed.
