Citywide Banks Named One of Colorado’s Top Corporate Philanthropists by Denver Business Journal

 

The Denver Business Journal released its 2015 list of the top 25 corporate contributors to Colorado-based charitable causes. Citywide Banks again made the top 20, coming in at 20 on the list that included many larger banks and corporations.  The list was based on contributions during 2014. During the year, Citywide Banks contributed over $476,000 to more than 150 nonprofits in Boulder, Denver, & the Front Range (up from $444,000 in 2013). This figure does not include hundreds of hours that employees spent volunteering on boards and committees, performing pro bono financial services, and participating in fundraising campaigns. A more complete overview of Citywide Banks community outreach activities can be viewed at CitywideBanks.com/community.
