CHICO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tri Counties Bank continued a year-long celebration of its 40th anniversary with a $40,000 award to Habitat for Humanity of Butte County on Tuesday, September 22 at their build site on East 11th Street in Chico.
“We’re proud of our success over the past 40 years and this success has allowed us to reinvest in our communities,” said Rick Smith, President & CEO. “Giving back is one of the cornerstones of why we exist.”
Earlier this year the bank kicked off its anniversary festivities by awarding $1,000 to 40 non-profit organizations throughout its footprint in California.
To choose the top 40 recipients, Tri Counties Bank employees took part in a voting process among all non-profits historically supported by the bank throughout Northern and Central California. The 40 selected non-profits were then considered for the master grant of $40,000. Four non-profits whose missions closely aligned with that of the bank were selected as finalists.
The three runners-up were the United Way of Northern California based in Redding, VECTORS in Chico and the Food Bank of Sacramento. Each of these organizations will be presented with checks for $10,000 each in separate ceremonies.
From a single bank on a tree-lined street in Chico in 1975, Tri Counties Bank has grown to serve communities from Bakersfield to the Oregon Border, from the Sierra Nevada to the wild north coast, with assets over $3.9 billion.
