In a move that touched our hearts and raised our spirits, we received a note from an eight-year-old girl donating $30 to the association. Here’s what happened: WBA’s Mike Semmann purchased raffle tickets during a recent banking event but needed to leave before the drawing. Because you needed to be present to win, he gave his tickets to this young girl with the hopes that someone could benefit from the tickets. She actually won a prize! We’re not sure if the $30 is the entire prize or a portion, but in either case, this touching gesture keeps bringing a smile to our faces.

If you are interested in following this little girl’s generous example, you can donate $30 (or more!) to support Wisconsin’s banking industry through the Wisconsin Bankers Foundation, WBA’s charitable arm. A 501(c)3 public charity, the WBF is dedicated to promoting financial literacy and financial responsibility to the public, and all donations are tax-deductible. To donate, mail your check to Wisconsin Bankers Foundation, 4721 S. Biltmore Lane, Madison, WI 53718.
