In 2012, IBC Bank employees throughout Texas and Oklahoma contributed $353,047 to the United Way, according to an IBC news release.
IBC Bank-Port Lavaca contributed $3,076 of the grand total through employee donations and dollar-for-dollar matching by the bank.
The bank's "we do more" philosophy provides a platform for IBC to make a difference, Derek Schmidt, IBC Bank-Port Lavaca's president and CEO said in the release.
"We strongly support United Way through both monetary donations and volunteer efforts because all of its agencies provide much needed services and empower individuals to lead better lives," he said.
IBC Bank-Port Lavaca's donation was dispersed among United Way of Calhoun County's agencies, including the Harbor Children's Alliance & Victim's Center, Habitat for Humanity and the Calhoun County Senior Citizens Center.
United Way applauds the bank for its support but is most thankful for the space IBC has donated to house the chapter the past 15 years, Carolyn Adrian, United Way of Calhoun County's executive director, said in the release.
"Their overwhelming generosity, saving us thousands of dollars in rent and utilities alone, demonstrates 'we do more' is a philosophy IBC Bank truly believes in, making a significant difference to all who call Calhoun County home," she said.
