Happy B Corp Month! We really love being part of the B Corp community. When we certified two years ago, we knew we weren’t only taking a firm stand in our commitments to growing in our impact. We knew we were also joining a tribe. As many of our fellow B Corp friends have echoed, our mission has always been core to our business model; this didn’t change when we became a B Corp. What has changed is that now we are held to a higher level of accountability with a tribe of like-minded (or like-hearted) entrepreneurs who have also become our friends.
To celebrate the B Corp Tribe and B Corp Month, we are taking a stand in our mission of financial inclusion. During the month of February, for every new bank account opened by a B Corp or employee of a B Corp in the tristate area, we are donating $100 to financial literacy via our non-profit partner, Ariva. For over 15 years, Ariva has been working hard to empower low-income New Yorkers with effective tools and resources so they can make informed financial decisions and achieve economic stability.
Simply call one of our branch staff and mention that you read about this offer on our blog. They will help you open an account and we will make a $100 donation to Ariva.
To you and all of us working to B the Change,
The Team at Spring Bank
