RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Access National Bank is committed to making a positive difference in the community and is proud to announce its continued support of and long-time partnership with Brain Injury Services (BIS) in the form of a $25,000 contribution. For more than 15 years, the Bank has forged a great working relationship with BIS that extends far beyond providing financial support. Year-after-year, Bank staff faithfully volunteer their time and talents at the annual BIS golf tournament fundraiser. Additionally, the Bank’s Nonprofit Segment Team leader, Tom Ciolkosz, has actively served as the Secretary and Treasurer of the BIS Board.
“As a community bank with longstanding ties to Brain Injury Services, we embrace our responsibility to help the efforts of an organization that plays such a vital role in providing assistance to empower people living with head trauma related disabilities,” said Michael W. Clarke, Access National Bank, CEO. “We also feel privileged to be able to share our nonprofit industry expertise that has helped contribute to the organization’s growth and impact,” continued Mr. Clarke.
“Brain Injury Services truly values the financial guidance and support Access National Bank has provided to us since the inception of the organization. These funds will enable us to not only reach more survivors of brain injury but also allow us to be more creative in how best to serve their post-acute needs, like providing therapeutic interventions or more personalized social services,” stated Karen Brown, BIS, Executive Director. “We really wouldn’t be able to make the substantive impact on the community without Access National’s help.”
