Upcoming 3/28/13 Event: Beneficial Banking: Are YOUR Bank Deposits Changing the World?


Vincent Siciliano, President and Chief Executive Officer of New Resource Bank


Daniel Skaff, President of One PacificCoast Bank


Event Synopsis

Come learn about a new breed of community-focused banks from the Presidents of two of its pioneers – New Resource Bank and One PacificCoast Bank.  Called “beneficial banks,” “sustainable banks,” and “social impact banks,” they work with social businesses and nonprofits that seek social and environmental returns in addition to financial returns.

Were it not for sustainble loans, we might not have Blue Bottle Coffee, Cowgirl Creamery, or Strauss Dairy!

Come find out how these values-based banks are offering a credible alternative to the current financial system.  We will explore:

  • How sustainable banks differ from mainstream banks – both in philosophy and structure
  • How they not only survived the financial meltdown, but outperformed traditional banks
  • Their proven community impact through lending to social businesses and the underserved, impact investing, and fair and transparent products
  • Their effect on the microfinance field
  • How this can be the wave of the future
