Employee Giving

Since launching NBAZ Charities in April 2015, National Bank of Arizona has made serving and supporting the community a significant part of its company culture, where employees play a major role through volunteer efforts, financial donations and the Employee Giving Fund.

“The fund started as a result of NBAZ Charities and gives employees the opportunity to be involved in choosing organizations the bank awards grants to,” says Joy Antolini, NB|AZ executive vice president/director of human resources. “We have an employee advisory group comprised of all levels across the state. They make a collective decision on the nonprofits that receive a NBAZ Charities grant. It’s such an amazing process to be involved with.”

NBAZ Charities received roughly 300 applications in its first grant cycle, which opened in January. The advisory group reviewed the applications and selected the following nonprofits to receive funding by the end of July 2016:

  • Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts
  • Lake Valley PTA
  • Paz de Cristo Community Center
  • Camp Soaring Eagle Foundation
  • Labor’s Community Service Agency
  • Kids Need to Read
  • Upward Foundation
  • Show Low Library Friends, Inc.
  • Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse
  • El Rio Community Health Center
  • Native American Advancement Foundation
  • Elevate Phoenix
  • Assistance League of Phoenix
  • Western Arizona Community Alliance
  • Interagency Council
