At Inland Northwest Bank, we call ourselves a community bank, so "community" is very important to us. We believe banks have a responsibility to give back to the communities in which they do business.
From its very beginning in 1989, INB has been very active in its communities through donations, memberships and volunteerism. Today INB is a member of 7 different Chambers of Commerce and countless employees participate in various civic organizations such as Rotary, Kiwanis and Lions.
INB is a proud sponsor of Bank On Spokane which promotes household savings and financial empowerment by providing access to a bank account and the resources to be successful managing it.
Many bank officers have served and continue to serve in positions of leadership in numerous not-for-profit organizations such as the Better Business Bureau, Junior Achievement, the Boys and Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts, Spokane Housing Authority, and the Economic Development Council, just to name a few.
Bank employees regularly volunteer for Hoopfest and Bloomsday, two of the premier community events of our region. Many employees participate in fundraisers for such causes as Race for the Cure and Relay for Life.
In 2006, the Spokane Public Facilities District (the "PFD") approached INB for financial support for the Spokane Opera House. This facility, built in 1974 when Spokane hosted the World's Fair, is the primary performing arts venue in the region, yet due to budget constraints it was falling in disrepair. INB stepped up with a 10-year commitment totaling $1.5 million which has enabled the PFD to make substantial improvements to the facility. In recognition of this commitment, the PFD changed the name of the facility to the INB Performing Arts Center, and it is once again a state-of-the-art venue for Broadway shows, concerts, high school graduation ceremonies, and the like.
INB is proud to be a civic leader throughout the Inland Northwest and we feel strongly that being a caring corporate citizen is not just a responsibility but a privilege. We are happy to give back so generously to the communities in which we do business because it serves to strengthen the fabric of our region which enriches the environment in which we live and work.
