Working With Community Banks-RECORDING

Webinar Recording

Community banks can support your nonprofit’s mission and the community you serve.

Most nonprofit organizations are not intentional when choosing a banking institution. However, asking the right questions of your local banks can make your community stronger. 

For example, when the Paycheck Protection Program launched, did your bank proactively reach out to alert you about how to complete the application? Many banks did. And while this was not a requirement of banks, having a relationship can help you when the unexpected happens or new opportunities arise.  

During this TargetED, Alice Ruhnke will help you build relationships with your community banks.

You’ll learn:

  • how to find community banks that are right for you;  
  • how the Community Reinvestment Act can benefit you; 
  • the actions you need to take when researching banks in your community; and,
  • recommended steps to develop, maintain, and grow relationships with your community banks.

Even if you already have banking relationships, this TargetED can help ensure you’re maximizing this relationship. 

This session included 30 minutes of practical teaching and 15 minutes of Q&A. It is ideal for nonprofit leaders including executive directors, financial personnel, and board members who desire to propel their nonprofit to even greater impact by banking based on values.
