Established in 1997 with an endowment gift of $1 million to Greater Worcester Community Foundation, the Leicester Savings Bank Fund was created as a result of the merger between Country Bank for Savings in Ware with the Leicester Savings Bank. The Leicester Savings Bank Fund is a permanent charitable resource to benefit residents of Leicester, Massachusetts.
