Over twelve years ago, we created a Veterans Initiative in support of our Foundation’s mission. The focus of the initiative is to reduce all aspects of crime and provide ongoing, effective crime prevention programs that ensure a safe and secure environment for the residents of Veterans Homes all over the U.S.

Protecting the veterans that have served our country continues to be not only an important part of the Foundation’s mission, but is important to community bankers as well. CRA Partners, a subsidiary of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA), brings nursing, HUD, and veterans’ homes together with community banks for sponsorship in their assessment area, earning the bank CRA credit.

In honor of Veterans Day, we take this opportunity to thank the following banks for their continued support of this on-going initiative. When you see the image at left in the window of a bank, know that their sponsorship of this initiative is one of the many ways they choose to give back to the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to:
