Bank of the Islands has become a 2022 Children’s Education Center of the Islands sponsor at the supporter level.

“As a former CECI parent, I can attest to the invaluable role the center plays for island families with young children,” said David Lowden, then Bank’s V.P. – Private Client Relations. “Beyond scholarship support, we hope to make a difference in helping with CECI’s unfunded capital needs. Being a Supporter sponsor this year is a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank.”

The bank’s support will help address CECI’s Growing Together capital campaign, intended to fund $170,000 in repairs, replacements and improvements to its facilities.

The mission of the Children’s Education Center of the Islands is to create a nurturing, exciting learning environment that creates happy, curious, confident children. To learn more, visit the CECI website.
