“I truly believe we have an opportunity to alter the balance of impact and outcomes by changing the paradigm that currently defines the relationship banks have with community stakeholders. Traditionally banks are seen as a primary source of capital, investment and philanthropy. And while I believe that is absolutely true and appropriate it often results in limiting our engagement to ribbon cuttings and check presentations. As an industry, we have a depth of resources that most community organizations could only dream of having. From bricks and mortar, to human capital, to cutting edge technology and data capabilities, our potential contributions remain largely underutilized. The potential for banks to be a convener, an incubator, a recruiter, a financial literacy resource, even a cultural focal point could take us well beyond ribbon cuttings and check presentations. As a financial institution in this community I would encourage you to step into this work that has already begun. Our financial contributions provide the traction but standing shoulder to shoulder is where community happens.”
