TAMPA, FL, September 2021: GTE Financial’s charitable mission is to benefit the community through passionate support of local charities and initiatives. GTE approaches philanthropy as a duty to the community – a privilege that they wholeheartedly view as a fundamental purpose and reason for existing. As a not-for-profit financial institution, GTE focuses on giving back to the community instead of fixating on profit.
“What the Boys and Girls Clubs do for children is provide hope and opportunity…” said GTE Financial CEO Brian Best. “They are helping our sons and daughters grow, keeping them from harm’s way, and helping them graduate high school and go on to college.”
GTE Financial has raised a total of $68,500 in 2021 for their selected monthly charities. During September, GTE will spotlight Best Buddies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
