Alpine Bank’s 50 Years of Philanthropy campaign awards $426,500 to Colorado nonprofits

August 3, 2023, 8:44 am

Alpine Bank recently issued the following press release on its 50 Years of Philanthropy campaign:

Alpine Bank is celebrating its 50th anniversary by recognizing the vital role its customers and community partners have played in the company’s success. As part of its new 50 Years of Philanthropy campaign, each of Alpine Bank’s 853 employees directed a one-time charitable gift of $500 to support an eligible Colorado nonprofit organization. 

In total, $426,500 will be donated to the selected organizations in celebration of the bank’s continued commitment to Colorado. The gifts were awarded today, on Colorado Day, the state’s 147th birthday. All selected organizations will receive a letter explaining the surprise donation, along with the total amount awarded. Some organizations received gifts larger than $500 after being selected by more than one employee.

“I think it’s impossible to separate where business interests end and where society’s begin,” said Alpine Bank founder and Chairman Bob Young. “What makes a good banker is somebody who carries the same values. A good bank is one who can fully support the community in the most positive way.” 

Colorado Governor Jared Polis underscored the company’s community commitment with an official proclamation naming August 1, 2023 as “Alpine Bank Day,” noting that “since its inception in 1973, Alpine Bank has exemplified a philanthropic spirit by providing non-profit organizations with over $55 million in grants, scholarships, sponsorships and other donations.”

The guiding values that Bob established when he founded the bank in 1973 remain relevant today: Independence, Integrity, Loyalty, Compassion and Community.
