Golden Valley Bank Community FOUNDATION accepting donationsfor self-directed camp fire relief

Golden Valley Bank (OTCCB: GVYB) announced this morning that they will create sub accounts within their Foundation for businesses, employees, individuals or groups to accept contributions and self-direct funding for Camp Fire relief.  The Foundation will create these accounts to accept donations and disburse funds at the direction of the group or individuals who established the account.  As an example, many businesses have employees or customers who are affected by the fire and may want to raise funds to assist those employees or customers in their recovery effort. The GVB Foundation will create a special account for those funds and distribute them as directed to provide targeted relief where every dollar will directly benefit those affected.  There is no charge for this service and the Foundation will pay interest on these accounts.

Anyone interested in this service should contact the Bank directly at 894-1000 and ask for Mark Francis or Julia Wilson, or simply mention the Camp Fire Relief effort.

The Foundation is also accepting general contributions for Camp Fire Relief.  Checks can be made payable to GVBCF – Camp Fire and dropped off or mailed to the Bank.  Donations can also be accepted through the Foundation’s website at
