CHELAN – North Cascades Bank has recently added to their ongoing support of the Chelan Valley Housing Trust by donating $10,000 to the local nonprofit organization. “Our bank’s vision is to better the lives of everyone in our community,” reports NCB CEO Charlie Guildner. “We want to be a part of CVHT’s mission of building homes that are affordable to our local workforce and families.”
As a founding board member of the CVHT, Guildner understands how the housing crisis in the Chelan valley impacts his employees. “I want our team members to be able to live in Chelan, spend more time with their families and less time commuting,” he states. “With that higher quality of life, they’ll be better and more stable employees.”
NCB is a major sponsor of the CVHT and provided the construction financing for Emerson Village, CVHT’s first 5 townhome development. NCB also created the home loan products for the Emerson Village buyers.
