Business Bank Breaks Givings Record

LAS VEGAS - Business Bank of Nevada had a record year in 2004 for philanthropic efforts in Nevada. The bank’s monetary, in-kind, and volunteer support last year totaled nearly $30,000 in cash and in-kind donations, including computer and other office equipment, and more than 1,000 hours of volunteer services from Bank employees. This is a 17.6 percent increase over 2003.

''We view our involvement in the communities we serve as an extension of our bank, and if the community succeeds, we will also be successful,'' said John Guedry, president of Business Bank. ''While we're very proud of what we achieved last year with our monetary and in-kind donations, we're perhaps more excited about the human resources we were able to provide to nonprofit organizations statewide. Providing over 1,000 hours of volunteer services to nonprofit groups statewide was no small feat for a company our size.''

Nonprofit organizations that Business Bank helped, included: American Heart Association, Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada, Center for Independent Living, Clark High School Academy of Finance (AOF), Douglas County Food Closet, Eagle Valley Children’s Home, Friends in Helping Service (F.I.S.H.), Habitat for Humanity, Helen Jydstrup Elementary (Las Vegas At-Risk School Program), HELP of Southern Nevada. ''I Have a Dream'' Foundation, John C. Fremont Elementary School (Carson City At-Risk School Program), Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Las Vegas Rescue Mission, Leukemia Cup Regatta, March of Dimes, Nevada Child Seekers, Nevada Gives, Opportunity Village, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, United Way of Southern Nevada, Volunteer Center of Southern Nevada, West Charleston Lions Club, Western Nevada Community College Foundation (WNCC), and the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

The bank contributes financial, in-kind, and volunteer assistance to nonprofit institutions and organizations that enhance the quality of life and promote public interest where the company conducts its business. The four main areas of the Bank's philanthropic outreach includes: education, health and human services, community development, and arts and culture. Business Bank is a member of the Business Community Investment Council in Las Vegas.
