  2. Our contributions to economic development support the continued economic vitality of our region.
  3. Our contributions to programs fostering financial literacy support our commitment to helping our friends and neighbors make and save money while simplifying their lives.
  4. We give to programs encouraging community development to strengthen the heart of the communities in which we live and work.
