The leaves are falling and you can almost hear the sleigh bells ringing. As exciting as the holiday season may be, there are many people out there that this season is far from merry and bright. It has been a tough year for many with increased prices on almost everything you buy. This is just one reason why West Bank values giving back to others, especially during this holiday giving season. The West Bancorporation Foundation awards gives out a variety of grants each quarter to organizations that focus on human service, education, and arts & culture. This year West Bank has granted over $213,761 to non-profit organizations. Giving to organizations that recognize the importance of building strong communities is an important part of West Bank’s mission. There are many deserving organizations out there but it is important to make sure your charitable giving is going to the right place. Here are 4 things to remember when donating money this giving season.
