Bank of Guam commemorates 49th anniversary with ‘Founder’s Day of Giving’


Living its founder’s vision to bring prosperity and goodness to island communities, Bank of Guam commemorated its 49th Anniversary with its employees joining together to organize community cleanups and projects in Guam and throughout its branch network.

According to Joaquin P.L.G. Cook, the Bank’s President and Chief Executive Officer, “As we launch 49 years of being the People’s Bank and look toward the future, 2021 presents us with so many opportunities. This year’s plans provide a meaningful way for all of us to participate in our community – by connecting with each other, our neighbors, and our precious environment.”

Yesterday, March 13, BoG officers and staff visited four unique villages in Guam, all with different needs but with a singular purpose to drive impactful change. BoG teams in the CNMI, neighboring Islands and San Francisco also spreading the Bank of Guam spirit.

Cook stated, “The Founder’s Day of Giving Planning Committee has been working hard to make this one-day series of events successful, and our community participation caps off a great day of unity with each other, our neighbors, and our environment. But most importantly, it begins a series of Founder’s Days of Giving not only for that day but throughout the year as we approach our landmark 50th Anniversary next year. As our Golden Anniversary approaches, Bank of Guam’s impact will be purposeful and heartfelt.”
