Kitsap Bank receives philanthropic award

Kitsap Bank was recently recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal as a 2013 Corporate Philanthropist.

“Kitsap Bank is honored to be recognized for such a prestigious award,” said Anthony George, president and chief operating officer of Kitsap Bank. “Over the past 5 years, we have had the privilege in contributing $1.25 million to non-profit organizations in the communities we serve, and in 2013, we will be donating over $300,000 to over 100 non-profit organizations. In addition, our employees have volunteered over 5,200 hours in our communities over the past year.”

This recognition, which is part of the Business Journal’s Corporate Citizenship Awards, honors businesses that “do well by doing good.”  Since 2008, the Business Journal has been publishing the “Corporate Citizenship: Business of Giving” special report, in which PSBJ Researcher Bonnie Graves surveys area companies about their cash contributions to area nonprofits.

Established August 8, 1908, Kitsap Bank is headquartered in Port Orchard, operating 21 locations throughout Western Washington.  With over $900 million in assets, the bank provides a full range of financial services to commercial and individual customers.

BauerFinancial, the nation’s leading bank rating and research firm has given Kitsap Bank their 5-star rating; and Kitsap Bank has been named a Preferred Lender by the U. S. Small Business Administration.
