Texas Bankers Foundation honors 12 banks with Cornerstone and LiFE Awards
Now more than ever, banks are demonstrating their commitment to their customers and communities by providing much-needed loans to small businesses through the Paycheck Protection Program, donating to area food banks, delivering food and supplies to first responders and volunteering time and donating money to a variety of charitable organizations.
This type of commitment is nothing new to the banking industry, however. Making their community a better place to live and work has always been a top priority for banks.
For the past 18 years, the Texas Bankers Foundation has recognized excellence in community involvement through the Cornerstone Awards. Over the years, award winners have been recognized for making Christmas special for underprivileged children, revitalizing main street, helping fight hunger, supporting Habitat for Humanity, honoring veterans and helping out during natural disasters, to name a few.
In addition, because providing financial education is such an important part of the industry’s community involvement, the Foundation recognizes these efforts through the Leaders in Financial Education Awards.
