Business Bank of Nevada Sets Giving Records

LAS VEGAS — Business Bank of Nevada achieved its fourth consecutive record year for philanthropic outreach in Nevada. In 2006, the bank’s monetary and in-kind support totaled over $75,000 in cash and in-kind donations, computer, and other office equipment along with more than 1,500 hours of volunteer services (from Bank employees). Its total giving represents a 114 percent increase over the previous year.

“We continue to be very proud of our philanthropic performance and our increased capabilities each year to help more people and communities become better places to live and work,” said Larry Charlton, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Business Bank and immediate past chairman of the board of United Way of Southern Nevada. “We view our involvement in the communities we serve as an extension of our bank, and if the community succeeds, we too will be successful.”

Charlton added that while the bank is very pleased with what it achieved last year with its monetary and in-kind donations, he and other executives were most pleased about the human resources and volunteer hours it was able to provide to nonprofit and community organizations throughout Nevada.

“Providing over 1,500 hours of volunteer services to these organizations was no small feat, especially for a company our size,” he said.
