Philanthropy Matters
September, 2016 - Issue #143

Mission Valley Bank's local roots run deep, motivated by the desire to be an integral part of the area they serve. A strong community thrives on personal relationships and Mission Valley Bank supports - and is honored to be supported by - the Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys.

There is a growing movement in public opinion for consumers to seek out businesses identified with causes they relate to in terms of their values. This concept is amplified on social media with the emergence of millennials as informed consumers who place even more importance on corporate philanthropy than with past generations.

A strong community is built on a foundation of lasting personal and professional relationships. A business bank that prides itself on strong relationships strengthens both its own position and the community it serves.

Philanthropy - the act of giving back - is a key component to how Mission Valley Bank operates. Putting the community first in community banking aligns with the culture and strategic goals of the bank's management team.


In celebration of their 15th Anniversary, Mission Valley Bank
donated $15,000 to local area nonprofits.

Each of the following charities received $1,500 in recognition of their countless contributions to the community.

KEEP THE GIVING GOING
Everyday purchases can also help nonprofit organizations. Sign up at Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com) and a percentage of each purchase will go toward a designated charity of choice. Also, think about using PayForward, a local Social Financial Platform.
