December 6, 2019
MERRILLVILLE—On Giving Tuesday, Centier Bank presented a $50,000 donation to United Way as part of its annual contribution campaign. Over 600,000 individuals throughout the state will benefit from the dollars donated by Centier Bank through its associates and corporate gift. These funds will help serve over 100 local United Way programs.
Each year, Indiana United Way Agencies work to improve lives across the globe by mobilizing the caring power of communities to advance the common good. For the past several years, Centier Bank has partnered with United Way chapters across the state, resulting in the advancement of initiatives designed to impact thousands of families and individuals in need.
The donation supports the United Way organizations in the 11 counties in which Centier serves, including Lake, Porter, La Porte, St. Joseph, Elkhart, Marshall, Allen, Tippecanoe, Boone, Marion and Hamilton counties.
Mike Schrage, President and CEO of Centier Bank, said United Way’s mission is near and dear to associates, because it aids people in the communities that Centier is a part of.
“United Way is a wonderful organization that truly cares about the wellbeing of individuals across the globe,” Schrage explained. “Through volunteerism, support, and donations like today’s, we are also able to touch the lives of children and families in our own Centier communities."
This year, Centier also helped Lake Area United Way raise $65,000 during its annual Over The Edge rappelling fundraising event, held at Centier’s Corporate Centre.
Anthony Contrucci, Vice President of Business Development at Centier Bank, said the contribution highlighted a year of giving from Centier Bank and its associates, who have contributed over 17,000 hours of volunteerism to nearly 800 organizations in 2019.
“Our associates are the pinnacle of the Servant Heart Culture that is at the heart of Centier,” Contrucci said. “We will continue to support United Way in its efforts to improve the lives and advancement in communities across the state.”
