Centier Bank engaged Blackbird Philanthropic Advisors based in South Bend, Ind., to conduct a study of the Bank’s community impact across Indiana communities from 2016-2020 resulting in a total value of $11,055,978.
The study examined several areas including corporate philanthropy, volunteerism, and associate philanthropy in order to quantify Centier Bank’s impact on local organizations and communities at large.
Over the five-year timespan, Centier has contributed financially to over 1,350 organizations and volunteered 71,856 hours across 2,821 organizations, among many more initiatives.
“Above all else, we are a purpose-driven organization dedicated to the communities we serve across Indiana. As we strive to be the Heart of the Community, it is our mission to give back – whether it’s through sponsorships and donations, volunteerism, or any other means of philanthropic outreach,” explained Anthony Contrucci, Vice President of Community Relations at Centier Bank. “Our primary goal is to be an engaged and passionate member of the community that creates measurable and sustainable impact.”
Organizations large and small that serve Indiana communities have expressed their appreciation.
"The support that our United Ways receive from Centier Bank is truly the driving force for change in our communities," said Lisa Daugherty, Executive Director for the Lake Area United Way.
“It’s our privilege as a community bank to bring our associates across the state together for the common goal of giving to those in need,” Contrucci explained. “Our Servant Heart Culture is at the center of everything we do--not just at our branches, but throughout our communities.”
