Our team members are active members of their communities through their volunteerism and personal philanthropy. The Bank’s Employee Match Program provides employees the opportunity to donate to any nonprofit organization of their choice and receive a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $1,000 per year. Last year, more than 1,200 nonprofits benefitted from this program. Our combined team member and Bank matching donations contributed nearly $1.6 million to the causes our people care about, including education, health and human services, the environment, and resources for local communities.
