    • Marquette Bank’s Good Neighbor Gift Project is a charity contest that awards $2,500 and 25 hours of volunteer service to a local nonprofit nominated by any Marquette Bank employee.


    “Our Good Neighbor Day Gift Project contest allows us to build relationships with local organizations in our neighborhoods that are struggling and in need of our help,” Christie Cox, Neighborhood Director, said. “As a neighborhood bank, it is our mission to help the less fortunate and make the neighborhoods we live in stronger for the residents in our communities.”

    In order to qualify, nonprofits must be a 501(c)(3) or a 509(a)(1) organization. Once nominated, qualified organizations will complete a short application which includes: 

     

    • An overview of the organization, including: mission, vision and goals
    • A detailed plan of how the funds would be used
    • A detailed plan of how the volunteer hours would be used
    • A project timeline
    • A description of how the funds/volunteer hours would benefit the neighborhood 

     

    Completed applications must be received by Oct. 31, 2013 and the winning organization will be chosen by the Marquette Neighborhood Committee by Nov. 15, 2013. Marquette Bank’s participation in National Good Neighbor Day and its Good Neighbor Gift Project are part of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment, where each quarter the bank focuses on giving back to its communities in four areas of need: shelter, hunger, education and health/wellness.
