Our commitment to Do More for the communities we serve permeates our company from the top down. Community involvement decisions are made at a local level because our employees in Texas and Oklahoma are personally vested in the communities in which we live. IBC Bank employees are encouraged to actively participate in civic and charitable organizations supporting the arts, education, neighborhood revitalization, economic development, medical research and other philanthropic endeavors. IBC Bank is grateful for the opportunity to give back through volunteer hours and in-kind donations with corporate giving totals exceeding $1,000,000 last year. These contributions often provide the means for many charitable organizations in our communities.
IBC Bank believes in cultivating our employees into leaders and influential members of their communities. IBC Bank gives its employees the opportunity to take on leadership roles in their cities. Many of our officers serve on the boards of local chapters of nonprofits like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Habitat for Humanity, Boys and Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts among others. Our employees can also be found answering phones for March of Dimes telethons, organizing fundraising campaigns for United Way, making individual contributions to scholarships like the A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarship building floats for local parades and festivals, selling shamrocks for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and more.
