Pentegra Gives Back

We’re committed to helping make our community stronger.  That’s why we partner with Volunteer New York and participate in so many meaningful community outreach projects.  It’s also why we started Pentegra Gives Back, which gives every employee a day each year to do volunteer work, to help those who need it most.

Pentegra was recently awarded the Business Council of Westchester’s Hall of Fame “Corporate Citizenship Award” in recognition of its community service to Westchester County. The recipients of the Hall of Fame Awards speak to the highest caliber of Westchester businesses and the overwhelming contributions they have made to the economic health and growth of this county.
