Member Directed Donation Program

The Spirit of Giving program started in 1999, allowing the SLVFB's members to cast one vote per account to designate a share of the funds to be donated to their favorite SLV community non-profit organization. From Thanksgiving to Christmas, votes were submitted online and at our branches. 

In 2020 SLVFB set aside $30,000 to be split amongst all our customers' favorite non-profit organizations within the San Luis Valley. SLVFB received 2696 votes, split between 160 non-profits, with each vote valued at $11.13. 

We strongly believe in this program and cherish the participation that it brings to our community. It is inspiring to see our customers vote and cheer on their favorite non-profit organization. Thank you for another successful Spirit of Giving!
