“Giving back to our community is who and what Centinel Bank is all about. Taos is my home and I believe in the power of community to make a difference for future generations. For me, our giving program is not just about money, it is about being a proactive leader in making our community a better place to live and work. This takes resources of many kinds including our time, getting involved, rolling up our sleeves and working hard to make a difference.”
- Rebeca Romero Rainey, CEO, Centinel Bank of Taos

An institution is only as strong as the community it serves. At Centinel Bank, we regularly contribute to our community through volunteer work. Many of our employees volunteer with our local schools, while others serve on community boards, participate in mentorships, career days, blood drives, judging school competitions, conducting financial literacy classes and many other programs.
At Centinel Bank, we take steps to ensure the sustainability of our natural environment by:
- Providing green and alternative building loans for over thirty years
- Recycling shredded confidential papers*
- Community Shred Day
- Annual River Clean-Ups
- Shrinking our carbon footprint by reducing energy use
- Lighting our facilities with energy efficient light bulbs
- Replacing paper with more eco-friendly electronic technologies
Going Green with Centinel
* With our Recycling program, we saved 111 trees in 2012, 76 trees in 2011, and 77 trees in 2010. In 2009, the program had only been in place for half of the year, but thanks to a massive internal shred, 63 trees were saved.
