Darlington Building Society has a rich history of supporting the community. This year the society have pledged to donate 5% of our net profit after tax (in 2017) to local organisations and charities. All members will receive votes throughout the year so they can nominate charitable areas where the Society will look to support.
Last year, in 2016 the Society had a milestone year, 160th anniversary – to honour the milestone we pledged to support 160 local organisations, volunteer 160 days of staff time to local organisations and raise £160,000 towards local organisations. All three pledges were surpassed in 2016 which was a great success for the Society.
We continue to get involved in many activities which range from fundraising activities in branches to being part of large events which are aimed at benefitting the local community.
Each one of our 10 branches hold a community fund which is used to aid their local communities throughout the year.
