Community Involvement

Banks Street Partners appreciates the value of giving back to our communities in which we live and serve.  Since our creation in 2009, Banks Street Partners has created an Employee Charitable Giving Matching Program in which BSP and its partners have proudly donated over $350,000 to further support the non-profit organizations that our employees are passionate about. 

Additionally, in 2017, Banks Street Partners started the Annual BSP Day of Service.  Atlanta employees spent the evening serving dinner to the residents of the Trinity House in Atlanta, a 36-bed transitional housing and rehabilitation program. Charlotte employees served dinner to residents staying at The Relatives Crisis Center, which provides safe, temporary housing to local children between the ages of 7-17.  

Over the years, many non-proft organizations have received support from Banks Street Partners.  The non-profit organizations that benefited from our Matching Program in 2017 includes:
