PORTSMOUTH, NH – October 25, 2013  Leadership Seacoast, a non-profit organization that develops informed and active community leaders, received a recent commitment from Kennebunk Savings Bank to support its leadership program with a generous $1,000 donation. This money will help to offset the costs of Leadership Seacoast’s 2014 program year.

In keeping with the company’s Community Promise program, Kennebunk Savings Bank donates 10% of its annual earnings to local organizations like Leadership Seacoast which educate residents on issues of cultural and civic import. “We are so very pleased to welcome back Kennebunk Savings as a Leadership Sponsor,” said Jennifer Wheeler, Executive Director of Leadership Seacoast. “Kennebunk’s commitment to investing in our region allows us to continue our mission of discovering the issues, creating connections, and inspiring action.”

For more than 25 years, Leadership Seacoast has been instrumental in bringing awareness to some of the key issues affecting the region by developing a base of knowledgeable and active citizens through participation in its educative and experiential program. During the course of six months, participants hear from experts in a variety of fields from politics to the environment and come to understand the causal relationships connecting these diverse topics.
