Alpine Bank celebrates 50 years

Goal is $2.5 million in gifts to support nonprofits through our Loyalty Debit Card program

Alpine Bank wouldn’t be celebrating 50 years in 2023 without the partnerships of our customers and communities that have been cultivated over five decades. Because of this, we believe the best way to celebrate is by giving back.

Alpine Bank founder and chairman Bob Young has a foundational philosophy that’s proven to be far-reaching, and it starts with the theory that a local bank that cares about its employees, customers and communities can have a sustained and powerful impact.

“I think it’s impossible for a banker to separate out where business interests end and where society’s interests begin,” says Bob. “What makes a good banker is somebody who carries the same values. It’s not about making the most money. A good bank is one that can fully support the community in the most positive way.”

So, in 2023, we commemorate our golden anniversary by giving back to Colorado community causes through our Loyalty Debit Card program, aiming for donations totaling $2.5 million by year-end. When you use your Loyalty Debit Card for any purchase, we donate 10 cents to support nonprofits and community organizations.

We’re tracking our fundraising progress month by month. Use your Loyalty Debit Card for every transaction and know that you’re helping to make a difference. Remember to check back often at to see how close we are to reaching our goal.
