Bank of Jackson Hole becomes Leading Sponsor

Bank of Jackson Hole Announced as
Leading Sponsor of Teton Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton’s (Teton Habitat’s) new annual sponsorship program is giving local businesses a way to show their support for positive housing solutions and strong community values.  The Bank of Jackson Hole’s commitment to strengthening the local community through corporate giving and employee volunteerism makes its annual $20,000 donation to Teton Habitat another natural expression of its 35-year calling as Jackson’s local bank.

“The Bank of Jackson Hole has been a generous supporter of Teton Habitat for years.” Says Kendra Heimbuck, Teton Habitat’s Executive Director. “Their whole hearted endorsement of our work is a testament to the character and pride that fuels their success.”

True to form, the Bank of Jackson Hole’s engagement with the area housing non-profit goes beyond financial support.  Swing by the current build site at the Grove, behind the Library in Jackson and you could find bank employees contributing their time as volunteers.  “We don’t just work in the communities we serve,” says Pete Lawton, Bank of Jackson Hole CEO, “we live and play here.  We raise families here.  And we volunteer here.  It’s part of our commitment to the valley’s success.”

“It’s great to see the strength of local business rallying around the work of Teton Habitat.” Says Paul Schmidt, Teton Habitat Development Officer, “The way Habitat’s housing solution engages so many diverse community members in building a strong future makes it easy for anyone who supports community values to get involved. Our partnership with the Bank of Jackson Hole’s is a great example of the character that has always made Jackson Hole thrive.”

About Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area

Habitat builds affordable homes in partnership with hardworking families in the Greater Teton Area and strengthens communities through homeowner education and volunteer engagement.  With the proud support of one of the area’s most passionate donor communities, homes are built and sold at no profit to pre-selected partner families and individuals through an interest-free loan to ensure affordable monthly payments.  Partner families also contribute at least 500 hours of sweat equity, save for closing costs, and take a series of homeowner education classes to qualify as Habitat Homeowners.  Habitat also runs the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which sells donated home furnishings, appliances and building supplies to help fund Habitat’s program.
