Thanks to our valued customers Alpine Bank was able to give back to the Colorado communities we serve, setting new records for 2019.
Each time customers use their Alpine Bank Loyalty Debit Cards, Alpine Bank donates 10 cents to nonprofit organizations in their community on their behalf. And those dimes add up! For the year, Alpine donated a record $1,635,120—spurred by customers’ record use of our popular loyalty debit cards. Donations were directed to support the Environment, Community, Education, the Arts, the Latino community, Colorado Mountain College and Children’s Hospital Colorado*. We also welcomed Fort Lewis College (FLC) to our loyalty debit card family with the introduction of the FLC Forever Loyalty card.
The bank’s unique debit card donations were just part of the story. Alpine also set a new mark for total charitable donations in 2019, proudly donating a record $4,692,658 to support the communities we serve.
In a recent ranking of philanthropy by companies compiled by the Denver Business Journal, Alpine Bank ranked first for cash contributions to charities among Colorado-based businesses and ranked third among all companies (including larger out-of-state and national corporations).
*Alpine’s Children’s Hospital Colorado card helps support kids like Peter who is seven years old. He was born with a craniofacial condition that makes it difficult for him to eat and speak. He is now thriving after multiple surgeries and therapy at Children’s Colorado. He will require more surgeries, yet he faces every challenge with courage and confidence.
