East Texas is our home and our legacy of service extends into each of our communities. For four generations the Austin Family has realized the need to maintain a bank that would provide the financial stability and trust to contribute to the growth and prosperity of their local communities.
The Bank's allegiance to the communities it serves continues to manifest itself through contributions in direct support of local education, the arts, literacy, health and housing needs as well as countless hours of volunteer service given by Austin Bank employees. Employee participation is encouraged in civic organizations throughout their communities, and many serve as Board members of non-profit entities sharing their knowledge and leadership skills
Charitable Contributions - Donations/Sponsorships
Austin Bank has a long history of assisting charitable organizations in the communities they serve. While we would like to help fund all worthy causes, we are unable to support each and every request. Primary consideration for financial support will be given to those organizations which provide services within the Bank's trade areas.
Before submitting a charitable contribution request, please note the following:
Austin Bank annually recognizes its employees and officers for their volunteer service to civic and non-profit organizations within East Texas by giving Community Involvement Awards. The Community Involvement recipients each receive $500 and another $500 is donated to the organization they serve.
