We’re excited to announce the launch of an inspiring partnership with Bank of the West. Starting today, Bank of the West will donate at least $500,000 as a way to thank all of their new customers from March 19 – April 27.What is Give Back? Give Back, a new customer campaign from Bank of the West, will support hundreds of teachers in Bank of the West communities this spring. There’s lots of ways to get involved, help schools and learn more!How does it work? For every new checking account opened, a $25 donation will be made to a local school through the Bank’s alliance with DonorsChoose.org. PLUS, the customer will be able to earn up to $125 for themselves by adding direct deposit, using their debit card, adopting paperless statements, or opening a Bank of the West credit card.What can I do?
