American Savings Foundation's Legacy

Since its inception in 1995, the American Savings Foundation has taken a philanthropic leadership role in the local community, strengthening and supporting education, youth and families. Our founders created a legacy of help and hope, and the Foundation strives to keep that spirit alive by working with charitable organizations to help improve the lives of others in the local area. Committed to the mission giving back to the Connecticut towns once served by American Savings Bank, the Foundation continues to invest in the people and organizations that make the surrounding communities strong. 



Financial Literacy Program

The Foundation provides grants to support programs and organizations that improve the quality of life for residents of the communities we serve, with a special emphasis on the needs of children, youth and families. At the 2016 annual scholarship reception, the following video highlighting the Human Resources Agency of New Britain’s financial literacy program, a high-school youth program which receives funding from the American Savings Foundation was debuted. Students in the program study to become certified tax preparers and volunteer with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program in New Britain. 



20th class of Robert T. Kenney Scholars

On August 11, 2015 the American Savings Foundation announced the 20th class of Robert T. Kenney scholars. At this important point in the Foundation's history, we paused to reflect not only on the 20 year history of the scholarship program, but on all the work that the Foundation has done since it was created in 1995.
