CBA Member Banks Give Nearly $111 Million to Charitable Organizations


To measure the giving spirit of the California banking community, the CBA recently conducted a Community Relations Survey to gauge member bank-sponsored community involvement throughout 2011.

A total of 53 CBA-member institutions responded to the survey, which CBA member banks reported annual contributions to charitable organizations in excess of $110 million. In 2011 alone, more than 19,000 organizations were the beneficiaries of donations by California banks.

Employees of California banks also gave back to their communities, with nearly 600,000 hours of volunteer time invested.

CBA has produced a Community Relations Survey Fact Sheet, available here featuring many examples of banks’ spirit of giving. We invite you to share this information with your customers and local opinion leaders in your communities.
