2013 Habitat for Humanity Build (Indianapolis)

Salin Bank’s ongoing partnership with Indy Habitat continues to be a valuable avenue for investing in the community. This fall, Salin Bank crewmembers joined forces with Habitat for Humanity for the fourth year in a row to help build a home for the Hickenbottom family.
“Ms. Hickenbottom is a hard-working single mother who needed this opportunity for herself and for her child,” says Ted Mosey, Development Coordinator for Habitat. “It’s because of partnerships like this that members of our community can step into their dreams of home ownership, and show the next generation what that opportunity really means.”
About a dozen volunteers from Salin Bank participated in the home build, located in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood on the near northeast side, where revitalization efforts are already underway. “It was great to work alongside the homeowner and see her excitement,” says Salin volunteer Jeff Binkley. “It really personalized the experience for all of us and makes it more meaningful.” Crewmembers installed all siding on the new home during their time on the build site.
This year’s home build was part of a multi-year commitment that will run through 2014. As a family-owned business, Salin Bank is thrilled to partner with Habitat year after year to invest in local families and build stronger foundations within the community.



2012 -- Habitat for Humanity - Indianapolis

Salin Bank Crewmembers were busy this Summer as they headed to downtown Indianapolis for a build.  The new home for the family, located near School 51 on Gale Street is the second of five homes being built in 2012. This resulted from a partnership between Salin Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Martindale-Brightwood Neighborhood Community Development, the city of Indianapolis and dozens of churches and businesses. The dedication ceremony will be held August 4th at 10:00am. Habitat for Humanity plans to continue serving the Martindale Brightwood neighborhood throughout 2012 and beyond to make a lasting impact for the community and its residents.

2011 -- Habitat for Humanity - Marion County

Improving the economic and social challenges facing Indiana communities is something Salin Bank firmly believes in. That’s one of the reasons Salin Bank is a proud supporter of United Way of Central Indiana and its 105 different partner agencies. In 2009, Salin Bank raised tens of thousands of dollars from fundraising, pledges, and matching gifts.

In addition to its partnership with United Way, Salin Bank sponsors local art events, including the Concert on the Canal event for the Historical Society, and supports programs to help families of modest incomes realize the American dream of home ownership.

"Improving the communities where we live and work is a cornerstone of Salin bank, says William N. Salin, II, CEO of Salin Bank. "Our work with efforts such as the United Way and Habitat for Humanity are about the spirit of sharing and paying it forward. Through these and other programs, we’re able to give back to the community and make a true difference in the lives of others."

Salin Bank’s philanthropic efforts are further supplemented by the Salin Family Foundation, which supports future generations of Indiana residents through a college scholarship program for high school seniors.

"We believe the future is dependent on the success of the next generation. By providing financial assistance to some very worthy students in Indiana, we are helping a new generation succeed as they head to college," Salin says.
