A Maine thrift is giving away $100,000 to community groups in the southern part of the state to attract depositors to four new branches.

To mark the grand opening of branches in Bath and Waterville, Gardiner Savings Institution is asking local residents to vote on how much money to give to more than a dozen different organizations. In both communities, the bank will donate $50,000, with the top vote-getter receiving $10,000, the runner-up $5,000, and the remaining groups $2,000 each.
