Driven to make our communities the best they can be.

One of our core values is Commitment to Community, which simply means that local is our lifeblood. Local communities are where we came from and where we are headed, so we want to make sure our communities thrive. Giving back through employee volunteer hours, donations, scholarships, and sponsorships are just a few ways we show our commitment to helping those around us grow and thrive.

Every year our employees log thousands of volunteer service hours within their communities by giving their time and support to hundreds of organizations. In 2020, employees were able to safely volunteer over 8,347 hours, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Honoring the Bank’s 116th year in business, D.L. Evans Bank donated $116,000 to organizations that provided food and basic needs, housing, mental and physical health services, domestic abuse, and childcare in Idaho and Utah. This was in addition to the $300,492 of additional donations to organizations within our communities in 2020.

In 2021 D.L. Evans Bank announced the Employee Directed Donation Initiative. This will give D.L. Evans Bank employees opportunities to nominate their favorite non-profit organizations in Idaho and Utah to receive a donation from D.L. Evans Bank. The first round of donations was awarded in the spring of 2021, with the second round to be awarded in the fall of 2021. A total of $26,775 was given in round one to organizations in our communities, and an additional 5% was added to each gift in the nominating employee’s name.

Outside of Bank or branch-wide donations, employees are encouraged to give in a variety of ways. The following are just a sample of the ways D.L. Evans Bank employees make a difference on a personal level:

  • Donating blood
  • Volunteering at blood drives
  • Participating in fundraisers like golf tournaments and fun runs
  • Collecting and wrapping gifts or items for those in need
  • Being part of local non-profit organizations

Employees are given many opportunities to express their passion and desire to help others through volunteer work, whether during personal time or paid time. Knowing that our communities are what make us, D.L. Evans Bank remains focused on improving lives one minute at a time.
