General Contribution Philosophy
Century Bank is honored to be a part of our New Mexico communities and have been giving back for over 125 years. As a community minded bank, Century Bank’s contribution efforts are focused on the areas of youth, education, arts and community development. We support programs which make an impact on the health and safety of our youth; programs that foster academic achievement and scholarships for our students; community based arts organizations that lend to our diversity and culture; and organizations that promote wellness, stability, and growth, particularly those benefiting low-to-moderate income individuals. In addition, we support organizations which promote economic development and organization which promote a positive climate for businesses within our communities.
Century Bank’s employees and team members volunteer countless hours in their communities for a variety of reasons. We are grateful that we can help and support the communities in which we work and live.
