Community Involvement

Neighbors you know, bankers you trust.

Since 1902, the Mauch Chunk Trust Company has recognized that it takes more than money to support local communities. Our unyielding commitment to strengthening neighborhoods is displayed through the programs we sponsor to improve education, encourage volunteerism, and support charitable giving.


Our annual Community Hero Program honors four individuals each year who have displayed outstanding service to their community. These heroes are honored at an annual banquet where they receive an award from MCT, citations from both the State Representative and State Senators, and a $200 donation to the organization/charity of their choice.

Do you know someone who devotes an extraordinary amount of time to a non-profit and/or charitable organization? Each year, we ask you to share stories of their generosity with the rest of the community. Watch for announcements about our MCT Community Heroes Program!  

Strengthening Neighborhoods

We live in uncertain times that demand innovative ways to face the challenges confronting us. Mauch Chunk Trust recognizes that the answer lies in strengthening the fabric of our communities, and is committed to meeting those demands. We provide assistance towards fuel and medical expenses for the poor and needy residents of the Borough of Mauch Chunk (now Jim Thorpe) through the Robert B. Conner Private Foundation. You’ll see our name on youth sports uniforms, theater programs, and many other community events where we support area charitable organizations.


What forms tomorrow’s leaders? The character we instill in today’s youth. Through the Anna Marie Helbing Nursing Education Foundation, scholarships are granted to local students pursuing a nursing education. Several additional scholarships are awarded to local graduating high school seniors every year. The financial support we provide now is returned many times over as these young people offer their professional services to our communities.

We’re not merely local bankers … we’re your neighbors!

Charitable Giving

The success of our communities is vital to Mauch Chunk Trust Company. And it takes a myriad of resources to make that happen. By making local programs, organizations and initiatives geared toward the betterment of our locale the focal point of our charitable giving, everyone succeeds.
