As AbbyBank prospered and grew, the AbbyBank Board of Directors wanted to return part of the profits to the surrounding communities that had contributed to its success. The Abbotsford Story, Inc. was formed in 1986 as charitable foundation through which such community contributions could be made. Many donations have been made to local schools, non-profits organizations, and emergency or public services.
Each year the bank contributes a portion of it's profits to the charitable foundation. Since 1986, AbbyBank has contributed over $1,180,300.00 to Abbotsford Story, Inc. Interest earned on the principal amount is distributed each year in the form of donations to community and school projects. AbbyBank is proud to have contributed over $903,956.65 to worthwhile projects in Abbotsford, Appleton, Medford, Wausau, and Weston, where the bank operates its five locations, and in communities surrounding those cities.
Donations from Abbotsford Story, Inc. are limited to the trade area of AbbyBank, which consists of a 50 mile radius around the Abbotsford, Appleton, Medford, Wausau, and Weston communities. Requests are granted twice per year, each March and September, according to the Contribution Policy. Deadlines for submission of requests are March 1st and September 1st for each funding period. Each donation request must submit a Grant Request application.
