Giving back and the bottom line—a Message from our Chairman

As it draws to a close, we reflect on an eventful 2019. The year began with an unexpected challenge for thousands of our fellow Coloradans, who suddenly lost their paychecks due to the federal government shutdown. Alpine Bank responded to this crisis by offering no-questions-asked loans to the furloughed workers with no interest charged for six months.

While the government furlough was a surprise, our response was not. All of us at Alpine Bank know that our success is a reflection of the well-being of the Colorado communities we serve. We are especially grateful to our valued customers who, in turn, make it possible for the bank to give back generously and for our employees to volunteer with their chosen charities, schools, churches and other nonprofit organizations in their communities.

Alpine Bank is proud to give back to causes selected by our customers and our employee owners to organizations as diverse as their interests—scholarships, animal shelters, community events, family health, environmental stewardship and the arts–to name a few.

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).

As we close the books on 2019 and approach our 47th anniversary as an independent community bank, we remain steadfast in our belief that giving back to our Colorado communities isn’t just good for Alpine Bank’s bottom line, it is our bottom line.

— Bob Young, chairman and founder, Alpine Bank
