We consider it a privilege to be able to support the good work and events that take place throughout our communities. We appreciate the opportunity to serve the greater good alongside our customers, employees and the involved citizens of each community we serve.

In addition to bank-wide efforts to support the programs and services that are important to our communities, we also empower employees working within a market to allocate the majority of sponsorship support in their community to the causes they feel have the greatest need.

Contribution and Sponsorship Guidelines

We endeavor to fairly give of our time, talent and dollars. All requests are reviewed and given equal consideration as part of our decision-making process.

Due to the high number or requests for sponsorships and contributions that we receive, we have established guidelines to streamline our process so we can respond to and review each request in a timely manner:

To ensure consideration, requests must be in writing and include the following information:

  • Contact information, including: Name, address, phone number and e-mail address.
  • Nature or purpose of the event/organization; date, time and location of the event; relevant details surrounding the event or organization as you see fit.
  • Specific dollar request and listing of sponsorship levels.

All requests for a specific year must be received by October 1 of the previous year for budget consideration. (That is, for an event taking place in 2012, your request must be received by October 1, 2011.)

Your organization must have a 501(3)c designation.
