At Amegy Bank, giving back is one of our highest priorities. Amegy's goal is to contribute to the communities in which we serve by targeting our charitable giving and volunteerism toward nonprofits that produce positive results locally. We make a commitment to the people of Texas to be a leader in Texas banking, and we believe this also means committing to be a leading corporate citizen. Each year, Amegy donates more than million to over 450 nonprofit organizations as part of its mission to support the communities where we do business.Amegy Bank has been an active supporter of financial literacy for many years, and in 2019 the bank launched a unique and innovative Financial Education Program—a multifaceted strategic initiative—that engaged bankers, consumers, schools and nonprofit organizations to address the most crucial needs for financial literacy in the community. Led by an experienced Financial Education Program Administrator, the bank implemented an in-depth approach to community-based financial education through research and community surveys. The vision of Amegy Bank's Financial Education program is to provide financial education through volunteers in the communities Amegy serves. The mission of Amegy Bank's Financial Education program is to support educational opportunities through schools and nonprofit organizations, helping individuals to reach their goals as savers, consumers, homebuyers or small business owners.
