How We Help Nonprofits Thrive
As community stewards with extensive experience working with non-profits, we know cost-effective banking services are critical to managing cash flow and maximizing return. We also know our clients depend on our speed to serve them. Our commitment to our nonprofit clients goes beyond simply providing banking services. As a long-time supporter of many local nonprofit organizations, we understand the unique financial challenges of the modern charitable institution.
"We are so grateful for Five Star Bank's help during the PPP process. As a nonprofit, we are dependent on grants to serve our clients. Because of the unusual and trying times we found ourselves in, many of those grants had been suspended or cancelled, leaving our especially vulnerable population in acute need. Five Star Bank was able to help us through the PPP process from start to finish, allowing us to reorient our focus to those we serve and making sure they had the basic necessities to survive the shelter-in-place order."
CEO, 3Strands Global Foundation

"I've had a professional connection with Capital Public Radio for twenty or more years now. More than anything, I like knowing and learning about what they are doing beyond and underneath the things that are obvious. I'm very much in touch with their facilities, their infrastructure, their budgeting, their business model and their plans for growth, including their most recent capital campaign and some things they will be doing to enhance the experience for their listeners."
Jason Saslow, SVP, Business Development Officer &
Private Client Manager
"Our business model is unique in that most of the support for our services comes directly from our listeners but that can be cyclical. Five Star has been very instrumental in helping us even-out those cyclical times with cash flow. Five Star has been a great ally for us and partner."
Rick Eytcheson, Past President & General Manager, Capital Public Radio
