Capitol Bank Makes $500 Donation
Each holiday season, we give back to a community-minded organization. This year Capitol Bank made a $500 donation to The Madison Symphony Orchestra, to help nurture growth and enrichment in our community.
United Way Campaign
For 2013 we joined together as a team to support United Way with donations totalling $2,110. Our donations are kept local and used efficiently, focusing on our community's most urgent needs.
Change for Children
Capitol Bank was proud to sponsor Change for Children, which was a fun and easy way for people to support patients and families at American Family children's Hospital. From November 4 through the 27th, Mix 105.1 FM and American Family Children's Hospital teamed up by providing a large glass "bank" in front of Macy's at Hilldale Mall in Madison, to collect donations. The glass bank was maintained, emptied and counted by the Capitol Bank staff. All proceeds support the Child Life program that helps make life in the hospital less scary for kids. Child Life specialists are trained to help calm the anxiety kids may have during their hospital stay.
We extend heartfelt appreciation to all employees, family and friends who donated to and took part in the American Heart Association's 21st Annual Heart Walk on October 12 at Warner Park.
Washington D.C. Trip
Gary Kuter, Vice President / Chief Compliance Officer joined other Wisconsin Bankers Association (WBA) staff and Wisconsin bankers in September in Washington D.C. to address issues including Basel III, qualified mortgage rules and GSE policy. Senior staff at the OCC, CFPB, FDIC and FHFA had one-on-one meetings with bankers to explain the impact these issues are having on our banks and customers. This was simply the latest regulatory advocacy effort by WBA on behalf of the industry.
