C&N recognizes the importance of investing in local education with $500,000 in donations to area educational improvement and scholarship organizations.
Education is key to a strong and prosperous community. However, there are many roadblocks preventing children from receiving the level of education they deserve. C&N is committed to closing this gap by supporting local organizations that have made it their mission to make sure every child has access to the educational opportunities. By investing in youth, the bank is putting the local economies on the path to sustained growth and giving the children more opportunities to thrive.
