Bank of the Islands recently made its latest non-profit donation through the “We Love Our Islands” program. Virginia Humphreys was the lucky winner. After the bank spotted a “We Love Our Islands” decal on her vehicle, Humphreys earned the right to select which local non-profit organization would receive a charitable contribution from Bank of the Islands. Thanks to her selection, Bank of the Islands has donated $900 to the Sanibel School.
That donation marks $101,400 given away to date through Bank of the Islands’ “We Love Our Islands” program.
“We’re so pleased Virginia chose the Sanibel School for this donation,” said Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff. “The school is such an important anchor for our island community and the young families who live and work here. Our bank has been a longstanding partner to the school in many different ways. Supporting the Sanibel School, especially with the arrival of Principal Lusk, is such a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank.”
All islanders are invited to visit the bank’s Sanibel or Captiva office to learn more about the “We Love Our Islands” program and how you and your favorite charity can become our next lucky winners.
Bank of the Islands is located at 1699 Periwinkle Way, at the corner of Casa Ybel Road, on Sanibel. The Captiva office is at 14812 Captiva Drive, next to the Captiva Post Office. As the oldest locally owned and managed community bank on Sanibel and Captiva, Bank of the Islands is proud to be the winner of more than 50 “Best of the Islands” awards over two decades.
