Early on, service to our communities was identified as central to Alpine Bank’s mission. The causes and organizations that are supported with volunteer time and talent are as diverse and unique as each of the nearly 680 employees at Alpine Bank.
“We offer paid volunteer time to our staff,” says Kris Gardner, former chief administration officer. “We don’t put a lot of parameters on what volunteer time is. They can use it any way they want; any way they feel is beneficial.”
Whether it’s ringing the bell for Salvation Army, coaching soccer, building a Habitat home, helping in the classroom or serving on a nonprofit board of directors, each of the employees of Alpine Bank is compensated for three full work days, or 24 hours, of volunteer time each year.
Service to others has always been an important part of my life. Over my years of employment with Alpine Bank, I have been afforded the opportunity to grow this piece of me with overwhelming support from my bosses, peers and coworkers. I love that I am able to work for a company that places such importance on volunteering in our communities.

Giving my time back to the community is not only personally rewarding but also an opportunity to witness the positive impact that we can all make together. Alpine Bank is a reflection of the communities that we serve and the causes that our employees support with their money, time and effort.

Sitting in the circle at a Girls on the Run practice, I remember being excited to coach one day and change the lives of girls like my coaches did for me. I am proud to say that I was given the opportunity to coach. Some of the main highlights in my life have happened while volunteering. It brings me joy to work for a company that shares the same values and love of volunteering in the community that I do.

I love that I work for a company that encourages us to volunteer. The residents at HillTop where I volunteered had such amazing stories about their lives. The highlight of my time there was sitting and listening to their stories about how and why they were there. We don’t have to have money to make an impact on someone's life. I was impacted by the lives of those residents at HillTop because I chose to volunteer.
