2012 -- United Way
Salin Bank’s number one philanthropic organization is the United Way. The United Way is an organization that operates nearly 1,800 community-based locations throughout the world. Their goal is to support various local organizations. The organization's focus is on families and individuals so that they can achieve their highest potential through education, income stability, and healthy living.
To do so, they need the help of people and organizations, such as Salin Bank, to raise funds. Each year, Salin Bank employees raise money to present to various United Way organizations throughout the state. The money that Salin employees raise goes directly to nine United Way organizations throughout the state. The Salin family then matches what the employees have raised, fifty cents on every dollar.
Salin Bank employees raised nearly $50,000 to support United Way organizations throughout the state. The Salin Family match of $25,000 was given to personally-selected United Way organizations throughout Indiana. Each organization received a check from Salin Bank, as shown in the following photos.
