2016 Annual & Community Report

2016 in Review: A Joint Message from Your Board Chair and CEO

Banking Your Way...and More

You want your banking experience to be convenient. Low effort. Even enjoyable. Who wouldn’t? We continually take steps to make your experience with us everything you want and need. We also throw in some added member benefits. Here’s what we were able to do in 2016.


Giving Tuesday

We took this great grassroots philanthropic movement to our members, handing out $100 bills to them at our branches and asking them to "Do Good" with the money. Sharing on social media was also encouraged. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved.

Supporting Our Communities

In 2016 we invested our highest amount yet of financial support for non-profits and other partners doing important work. In addition to financial contributions, we look for ways to deepen our partnerships through employee volunteering, offering financial education classes and donating surplus technology equipment.
