The campaign was designed to provide increased exposure for the non-profits and positively affect community awareness of their missions and goals.  The campaign challenged community members to visit the Ledyard website and vote online for one of the five organizations that they felt was most deserving of Ledyard’s highest donation.  More than 53,000 votes were received in the 5 week campaign, and each community member was allowed to cast one vote per day. The Grafton County Senior Citizens Council garnered the most votes and received $10,000. Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice, Listen Community Services, Upper Valley Haven and WISE each received $5,000. ‘These organizations represent just a fraction of the many non-profit groups that make a difference in our communities each and every day,’ said Jeff Marks, Ledyard’s Chief Marketing Officer. ‘We thank them all for their contributions and are proud to continue to lend our support.’                     Ledyard Financial Group, Inc., headquartered in Hanover, New Hampshire, is the holding company for Ledyard National Bank.  Ledyard National Bank, founded in 1991, is a full service community bank offering a broad range of banking, investment, tax and wealth management services in the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region.  Ledyard National Bank has eight offices with locations in Hanover, Lebanon, Lyme, New London, and West Lebanon, New Hampshire and in Norwich, Vermont. Ledyard Financial Group, Inc. shares can be bought and sold through the NASD sanctioned ‘OTC Markets’ under the trading symbol LFGP.  Shares may be traded through an individual’s broker.  For more information, please refer to the ‘Investor Relations’ section of the bank’s website at www.ledyardbank.com(link is external) or contact the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, Gregory D.
