Lake Shore Savings has long supported the programs at Rockefeller Arts Center and SUNY Fredonia. Rockefeller Arts Center Director Jefferson Westwood said Lake Shore Savings became Rockefeller’s first-ever corporate sponsor 1987 and the first-ever season-wide sponsor in 2007-08.
“Lake Shore Savings does so much for our region that they stand out in my mind as the model corporate citizen in our area,” Mr. Westwood said. “I’m very pleased to welcome them back as our flagship season-wide sponsor.”

In addition to its support of events and programs at SUNY Fredonia, Lake Shore Savings supports many worthy local causes through its Community Reinvestment Fund. The fund makes money available to area clubs, sports organizations, civic groups, schools, charitable organizations and others for programs and activities. More information is available at
