December 27, 2011 > Legacy
From the moment of birth, each of us receives an abundance of information from our environment. If we are lucky, our parents nurture and protect us while friends and other family members reinforce a sense of self-worth and values. The same can be said for a community that draws its strength from the values and protection of its citizens. At the heart of a legacy are knowledge and values handed down through decades and generations.
Individuals can provide comfort and continuity but so can institutions that support and encourage a sense of belonging... in other words, community. Fremont Bank has been a solid supporter of our community since its inception when ranchers, farmers and businesses knew the value of safe and prudent investing. Although the unpredictability of weather and the environment were challenging, people in this area depended on Fremont Bank as a solid financial partner.
Fremont Bank prides itself on continuing this legacy, which began with the vision of Morris Hyman who knew that the strength of every community lies with its people. He believed that investing was more than just a matter of dollars and cents. Those who lived, worked and played in the area were a resource that transcended other assets. Investment was much more than simply the bottom line; true return on investment was an understanding and belief in the value of the combined dreams of all citizens, creating a common bond of trust and pride while building vital, healthy communities.
Morris's legacy lives on and is evident through the many contributions of the Fremont Bank Foundation to civic and nonprofit organizations throughout the area. Just as the combined assets of our community have made Fremont Bank strong and secure, everyone now has the opportunity to share the legacy through participation in the bank's B-CharitableSM checking account. Each time someone opens a B-CharitableSM checking account, organizations that cater to local arts, education, medical advancement, youth and social services benefit. As the old saying goes, "a rising tide lifts all boats." Be a part of the "B-charitable" rising tide in our community. Talk to Fremont Bank today about how you can create your own legacy.
B-CharitableSM checking accounts are an easy and efficient way to support your charity of choice, selected from a list of local nonprofit organizations that participate in the bank's program. Drop by a Fremont Bank location, call (800) 359-2265 or visit www.fremontbank.com/bcharitable to become part of the "buzz."
