Summit State Bank Contributes $608,000 to Sonoma County Nonprofits

Summit State Bank (NASDAQ: SSBI) contributed $608,000 to 240 of its nonprofit customers through its Nonprofit Partner Program. This program provides an annual cash contribution to its nonprofit customers. This contribution is above and beyond normal community giving, sponsorships and volunteering that Summit provides during the year. Since 2009, the Bank has contributed more than $5.8 million to Sonoma County Nonprofits.

In addition to the Nonprofit Partner Program contribution, the Bank hosts their annual North Bay Nonprofit Event (NBNE) with the intent of deepening its relationship with the nonprofit community and to provide an educational event full of resources, support and fellowship to local nonprofit organizations.

"We are very proud of the relationships we have built with our Nonprofit Partners and are pleased to contribute based on the size of the relationship. We believe it is important to give back to the local community we serve and reinvest our dollars for the betterment of our community. Our tagline says it all, 'Building a better Sonoma County, that's our business'," said Brian Reed, President and CEO.

Some of the recipients include Community Child Care Council (4C's), Petaluma Health Center, Legal Aid of Sonoma County and Northern California Center for Wellbeing, to mention a few.
