Community Donations
The Park National Bank is delighted to be able to say “yes” to the many requests we get for donations, sponsorships, volunteers and other contributions that support our communities. We strongly believe in investing our money locally and doing everything in our power to support the people and groups in our neighborhoods. In 2013, the bank donated more than $950,000! 
We are able to continue donating to many activities and investing in our communities because so many local individuals, businesses and organizations choose to be a part of the Park National family. Please note our ability to continue supporting so many organizations depends on our success as a community bank. It is our preference to support those who support us in our mission by being a client of The Park National Bank. Park National Bank sponsorship falls into the following categories:

  • Education
  • Community Service
  • Culture and sports (teams, not individuals)
  • Technology Programs
  • Business (events/forums)
  • Social/health

We receive hundreds of requests for donations per year. As that number steadily grows, to ensure that we continue our tradition of community involvement, and to comply with Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) regulations, we have established a set of guidelines.
  • Donations are restricted to non-profit organizations in areas where the bank is located.
  • We do not provide funding to individuals or politicians.
  • We review requests on a bi-weekly basis.
  • All requests must be submitted in writing at least two weeks ahead of the deadline.
  • Organizations and individuals should complete a Request for Donations form.
