Whether it’s helping out a small business with a loan, or helping our customers with their personal finances, we’re always looking for ways to help out our community. So, when we were planning what to do with our marketing budget this year, we thought, why not just give part of it away to a small business who could use it more than us? Since it’s our mission to make a difference in our community, we decided that’s exactly what we were going to do.

How does this work?

Because we’re looking to help out a business that’s small and local, to be considered, the business must be based in the greater Phoenix area, and have less than 20 employees. But we can’t choose a business all on our own—we need your help.

Please let us know about a small local business that’s near and dear to your heart by filling out our short nomination form.

All you need to do is:

  • Tell us about yourself
  • Tell us a little bit about the business
  • Write a few words about why you think they deserve a helping hand

That’s it! We’ll read all of the submissions and determine who will receive the award. As an added bonus, our partners at Forty will match our donation with $2500 worth of design and marketing services.

Helping out a small business in need is easy. Just tell us about your favorite small business here.

Why are we doing this?

We’re a small local business, and we understand that all local businesses are connected. When people bank with us, they’re making a decision to keep their money in our community. We try to return this favor by investing back into our community in as many ways as we can. Helping out a local business just makes sense.

We are still small, but we were once even smaller. Getting a little extra boost could be just the thing a small business needs to become a huge success, and we want to everything we can to help create as many local successes as possible.
