Community Involvement

At The Bank of Hemet, we believe that doing the right thing for our customers starts with making our communities even better places to live and work - and that the best way to do that is to get in involved.

From financial support to employee volunteerism, The Bank of Hemet is actively engaged with the projects, organizations and decisions that shape the regions where we do business.  We empower local leadership, so you can be sure that The Bank of Hemet is aware of the issues facing the community and is focused on making an impact where it matters most.

Six things we feel extremely proud of: 

  Students

The Bank of Hemet Partners with EverFi to Empower Local High School Students 

The Bank of Hemet is committed to providing students with the skills and knowledge needed to successfully navigate the increasingly complex financial world we live in.  The Bank has partnered with EverFi to bring The Bank of Hemet Scholars Program to local high school students at no cost to schools or taxpayers.  Administered by teachers in a classroom setting, the web-based program uses the latest in simulation and gaming technologies to bring a variety of complex financial concepts such as credit score, insurance, credit cards, investing, savings and 401K to life for today's digital generation.

Golden Deeds Award

Book of Golden Deeds Award Recipient

The Bank of Hemet was selected by the Hemet /San Jacinto Valley Exchange Club as the recipient of the 2010 Book of Golden Deeds Award as a tribute to the vital role it has played in ensuring an exceptional quality of life in our community through donating thousands of volunteer hours and financial contributions in the pursuit of supporting non-profit and community organizations.  The Bank of Hemet is the first For-Profit Business to be recognized for this honor since the award's inception over forty years ago.

Hospice House

The Funding of a Hospice House in Hemet

The Bank of Hemet, in association with The Community Foundation, purchased a residence in Hemet that was modified to provide hospice care to patients.  The house was donated to Hemet Hospice Volunteers, and provides an alternative to hospitalization or institutionalization for people receiving hospice care, in a wonderful, home-like setting.
