Sunshine Bank’s Dedication to Community Involvement

November 7, 2016

The team at Sunshine Bank believes that community involvement is at the root of community banking. Through immersing themselves in the communities they serve, Sunshine Bank can better understand their neighbors’ wants and needs. It is through community relations that Sunshine Bank bridges the gap between neighborhoods and financial security.

At Sunshine Bank, every officer within the company serves on three community organizations, as well as holds a leadership position in one of those organizations. This culture that Sunshine Bank has created reaffirms their values and beliefs, exuberating a sense of belonging while instilling trust in the people around them.

“At Sunshine, we believe that community involvement is a critical part of being a successful community bank,” says Janak Amin, EVP, Co-President of Sunshine Bank. “Our employees live and work in the same communities as our customers. We hire local management for the purpose of staying in touch with the community and making decisions with local interests in mind.”

Some of the organizations that Sunshine Bank’s employees have dedicated time to include:

* Glazer Children’s Museum

* Trinity School for Children

* American Cancer Society

* Boy Scouts of America

* The Children’s Home

* Tampa Palms Community Development District

* Salvation Army

* Ronald McDonald House

* And many more

Sunshine Bank’s foundation is based on local, relationship oriented bankers with a passion for their customers and the local communities they serve. Expect uncompromising service as they live by the high standards outlined in their Foundation Booklet.
