The point of a bank isn’t money – it’s service.
That includes helping the communities where we live and work be the best that they can be. Below are just a few ways that we strive to make a difference.
Supporting nonprofits through leadership
Paragon team members serve in leadership positions with several nonprofit organizations, including board members on the Memphis Child Advocacy Center, United Way of the Mid-South, Shelby Farms Park Conservancy, Dorothy Day House, March of Dimes, and River City Capital Investment.
Assisting the Community Through Service (ACTS)
Our ACTS program grants 40 hours each year to Paragon team members to volunteer with their favorite charitable organizations. Team members use their ACTS time during regular business hours to provide help to dozens of local and national volunteer and charitable agencies. In 2016, 90% of our team members took advantage of ACTS. Their combined efforts generated almost 1,300 hours to help more than 61 community organizations. In addition, Paragon hosts Lunch and Learn programs where representatives from nonprofit organizations discuss their mission and work in the community. This connects Paragon team members with opportunities to volunteer.
Teaming up for a purpose
Several times during the year, Paragon team members work together to support our communities.
