BankNewport is pleased to announce that it has been honored with a 2020 Common Good Award, presented by Rhode Island Monthly magazine and the Rhode Island Foundation.

Common Good Awards recognize Rhode Island businesses of all sizes that inspire philanthropy in their employees around the state, not by writing a check to a worthy cause, but by encouraging staff to go into the community and help.

BankNewport was recognized for its community outreach efforts that were part of the bank's 200th anniversary celebration in 2019, including community events, programming, random acts of kindness and pay-it-forward gestures by employees. Through the bank's financial education program, employees took their expertise to classrooms and communities to help young people and families strengthen their skills in managing money and planning for the future. Through the Kind Hearts, Warm Soles sock drive, bank staff collected adult and kids socks and delivered them to homeless shelters around the state.
