There’s no use denying it: money plays a pretty significant role for a bank. But at Amarillo National Bank, we do work hard to move beyond the day-to-day focus on money. One way is to be as generous as possible—with our resources, our talent, and our time.
Every year, our employees give more than ten thousand hours of community service to the organizations working to make our area a better place. Last year, ANB employees were active in more than 170 different organizations throughout Amarillo and Borger, serving as board members, committee members, leaders, and volunteers.
Revitalization is about more than new buildings. We added 120 new trees between Taylor and Polk streets for a greener, more walkable downtown. We hope this beautification inspires others to plan for the future.
This is also proof, that we are...Here to Stay.
(Total number of ANB's trees will be 499!)
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
For several years, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure has been held downtown, on the main parking lot of Amarillo National Bank. Over 5000 supporters come to this event to support the funding of breast health programs for the 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle, and to fund research to help eliminate breast cancer forever. This year the co-chairs are Molly Caviness and Amarillo National's Savannah Singleton. Congratulations on a successful event!
Amarillo National Bank is a long-time supporter of the United Way of Amarillo & Canyon. This year the campaign is being led by Amarillo National's own William Ware. ANB is in process of wrapping up their most successful campaign ever! So far this year, we have over 500 givers within our company. Amarillo National is not only generous with their sponsorships and donations, but also with time. There are currently twenty ANB employees involved with the campaign and other aspects of United Way. Best wishes to William for a very successful campaign.

A healthy economy is important. But financially healthy communities are comprised of families and individuals who make smart fiscal decisions. That's why ANB invests heavily in the financial education of our friends and neighbors in Amarillo and Borger. For several years, we have been active participants in Teach Children to Save, a national campaign for students. We also participate in the American Bankers' Association Education Foundation (ABAEF) Get Smart About Credit program, offering credit information design to teach teens and young adults to better understand credit and make good financial decisions.
Our employees also provide financial education for clients of local non-profit organizations—or anyone else who requests this service. To learn more, contact Lizzie Mason at (806) 378-8168.
Every bank ought to focus on fiscal fitness, but at ANB, we're also zealous advocates of physical fitness. What good is financial health if you're too sick, tired, or out-of-shape to enjoy it?
Nearly 500 of our employees have joined our extensive wellness program by committing to daily workouts in our state-of-the art health centers. Dozens more participate in community fitness events, from local 5Ks or 10Ks to cycling races, triathlons, marathons and more.
Beyond that, ANB is committed to helping local athletes compete at every level — from elite amateurs to the professional ranks — by sponsoring local athletes and groups. These include:
Team Kordestani (Amarillo’s Premier Cycling Team)
TriATX (Amarillo’s USA Triathlon-registered triathlon club)
