Kirkpatrick Bank annually supports community organizations with sponsorships or donations. Officers, directors and members of our Admiral’s Club may make an annual request for support for worthy non-profits. Additionally, Kirkpatrick Bank provides support for schools for unfunded or underfunded programs. We seek to support efforts which promote access for the underserved in the areas of education, the arts, health and environmental responsibility. We encourage a spirit of volunteerism and community service among our employees, who annually provide many, many hours of personal time to support various causes and organizations.
