U.S. Bank sponsors Women’s Fund

From page B1 | July 08, 2013 |

U.S. Bank recently became a 2013 Silver Sponsor for the Women’s Fund El Dorado, a fund under the umbrella of the El Dorado Community Foundation. The over 260 donor members of the Women’s Fund are a testimonial to their foundational philosophy which is: “We may not be wealthy women individually, but by pooling our giving power, we can make significant, positive impacts on the quality of life in our own backyard.

Since the inception of the Women’s Fund El Dorado, grants totaling $202,000 have been made and, in addition, an endowment of over $230,000 is in place ensuring that grantmaking will continue for many, many years to come.

After attending the 2013 Women’s Fund’s Community Needs Forum at which several speakers spoke to some of the pressing challenges we were facing as a community, Pamela Maxwell, vice president and community affairs manager said, “Strong connections start with understanding the needs of our communities and deepening relationships in ways that move us all forward.”

Through a simple grant-making process, the annual proceeds from the Women’s Fund membership offer significant financial support to programs or projects dedicated to addressing these identified needs on the Western Slope of El Dorado County.  Maxwell said the bank was particularly impressed with the outstanding grant making efforts of the Women’s Fund during the past three years because their focus closely aligned with the primary focus areas of the bank.  These areas include education, economic development, arts and culture.

Through the end of 2011, U.S. Bancorp donated $46 million to strengthen communities across the bank’s franchise.
