Affinity Program

A financial boost for non-profit groups
It's our contribution to your fundraising efforts

Despite the great work they do, it's often a challenge for local non-profits to raise sufficient funds to fulfill their missions. At ConnectOne, we believe in putting our money where our heart is. As part of our community commitment, we make annual donations to non-profit groups through our Affinity Program.

  • Contributions are based on a percentage of the total balances that members and supporters of your non-profit have on deposit with us*
  • We pay out 0.50%** on non-interest bearing account balances
  • We pay out 0.15%** on interest bearing account balances
  • Eligible accounts include business and consumer checking accounts, savings accounts, money markets, certificates of deposit and Individual Retirement Accounts
  • There are no costs involved to join our Affinity Program; for either the organization or for linked accounts
  • Affinity Program account balances are calculated in January/February for the previous year and checks are distributed to the designated non-profit organization thereafter

How can we help you?

Contact a ConnectOne Bank representative to learn more.

* Members and supporters include anyone that wants to "link" their existing or new ConnectOne Bank accounts to the non-profit organization's ConnectOne Bank account. Those could include: board members, current and past members, their families and friends, donors, volunteers, and vendors. The organization’s deposit balances are not used in this calculation.

** The organization will not receive any information from ConnectOne Bank regarding client account balances or any other client personal information. We respect our client's confidentiality.

Effective 10/1/2016, until further notice.

You come first. We aren't like those other banks.

At ConnectOne Bank, we understand that little things matter and focus on those things when providing personal and business banking solutions for our clients.
