Middlesex Savings Bank has made the largest contribution to date to support Concord’s all-out 2025 commemoration of the battle that launched the American Revolution.   

The Concord250 Executive Committee announced that Middlesex Savings Bank has donated $50,000 to the non-profit Concord250 Corp.   

“When Middlesex Savings Bank was founded as Middlesex Institution for Savings in 1835 in the town of Concord, we solidified our commitment to the history and well-being of the community,” said Middlesex Savings Bank CEO Mike McAuliffe.   

“We take great pride in supporting Concord250’s commemoration of the past and celebrating these defining events that shaped our history.”  

Members of the Concord250 Committee and Middlesex Savings Bank officials gathered recently to celebrate the gift and receive the first $25,000 installment.   

“Middlesex has always been a great supporter of community organizations and events, and we are so grateful and pleased that they are continuing their legacy of giving back to the community they serve,” said Concord250 Finance Chair Rich Loughlin.   

The funds will be allocated to special programs and offerings recommended by Concord250 subcommittees.  

As a distinguished “Platinum Sponsor” of the celebrations, the bank is also offering a Concord250 commemorative coin at local branches.
