On Thursday, September 20th, Investors Bank presented The Land Conservancy of New Jersey (TLC-NJ) with a grant of $5,000. David Epstein, President of TLC-NJ accepted this grant on behalf of the organization which was presented by Dinesh Jani, Branch Manager of Investors Bank at Denville Station.
Since 2008, sponsorships and grants from Investors Bank to TLC-NJ total over $64,000 and has been used to fund numerous land conservation projects and support The Land Conservancy’s events throughout New Jersey. Additionally, more than 200 employees have participated in 18 projects through The Land Conservancy’s award-winning “Partners for Parks” at a variety of locations.
In 2016, Investors Bank was awarded the Rosalie Lavinthal Volunteer of the Year Award. Established by The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, the award honors Rosalie Lavinthal who served as their Development Director for five years before passing away in 2012. Rosalie was universally admired by her co-workers, members of the Board, and all of the people with whom she worked. The award is presented annually to honor an outstanding volunteer and/or company whose volunteer land conservation work best exemplifies Rosalie’s spirit of volunteerism and giving back to the community.
