Comitted to Our Community
Community Involvement.
Ocean Bank was built on the premise that our communities would be our most
lucrative asset, that the future and dreams of South Florida's residents and
visitors could be strengthened and improved through the Bank's involvement.

It is for this reason that each year Ocean Bank and its employees renew their commitment to give back to our communities. We contribute funds, time and personal effort to projects that benefit the people in our communities, thus helping South Florida grow and flourish. We can proudly state that Ocean Bank is a leader in community involvement and corporate giving. Proof of its dedication is the Bank's unwavering support of local organizations that work hard to help those who are most in need. We have formed strategic alliances with community and business organizations that are truly making an impact in South Florida.

As a strong supporter of education, Ocean Bank contributes annual funding to a number of worthwhile educational initiatives in our communities. One of our most important achievements is our 16-year partnership with the Education Fund in the establishment of the Ocean Bank Center for Educational Materials (OBCEM) in 1993. The OBCEM provides Miami-Dade County Public Schools teachers with free year-round access to surplus materials, supplies, equipment and furniture donated by area businesses.

The Bank also committed a $1 million contribution to the Florida International University College of Business Administration (CBA). These funds were used to build the auditorium in the CBA's new building complex and is the largest single donation made by Ocean Bank to date. This donation reinforces Ocean Bank's commitment to supporting education within the local community. In recognition of this gift, the auditorium was named in honor of Ocean Bank.

Each year, Ocean Bank also contributes substantial funds to the United Negro College Fund, Florida Memorial University and the Alex Rodríguez Educational Center at the Boys and Girls Club of Miami. All these efforts are in support of the education of the youth of South Florida's communities.

In addition, Ocean Bank is a supporter of the United Way of Miami Dade County, the March of Dimes, the League Against Cancer, the Jackson Memorial Foundation, the Miami Rescue Mission, Camillus House, and many other such organizations.

Ocean Bank has been repeatedly recognized for its outstanding effort in enhancing the quality of life of our citizens. The Bank received the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce "Top Hispanic Business Community Involvement Award" in 1995, 2000 and 2002; the "2002 Beacon Award" in the area of financial services from the Beacon Council, and the "Building our Community" award from the March of Dimes in 2002. It was also the recipient of the "Commissioner's Business Recognition Award" from the Florida Department of Education in 1997 and 2003.

As a true local Bank deeply rooted in our community, it is Ocean Bank's goal to make a difference in the lives of people; the people who work at Ocean Bank, the people who bank with us, and the people who rely on our support. Ocean Bank is committed to improving the quality of life in South Florida and considers itself to be an integral part of Florida's future as it continues to build and develop its communities.
