Bank of the Islands recently made its latest non-profit donation through its “We Love Our Islands” program. Clark Rambo was the lucky winner. After the bank spotted a “We Love Our Islands” decal on his vehicle, Clark earned the right to select which local non-profit organization would receive Bank of the Islands’ contribution. Thanks to his selection, Bank of the Islands has donated $400 to the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club.


That donation marks $101,800 given away to date through Bank of the Islands’ “We Love Our Islands” program.


“We’re so pleased Clark chose this local Rotary project for the bank’s donation,” said Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff. “Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Howard S. Danner Wheels for Wheels Cycling Challenge has purchased and distributed more than 750 wheelchairs through our local Rotary chapter. Here on our islands, wheelchairs have been donated to the F.I.S.H. loaner collection to replace those lost during Hurricane Ian. Elsewhere, the San-Cap Rotarians have donated wheelchairs in Guatemala, Haiti, Trinidad, Barbados and the Bahamas. With many of our staff and customers serving in Rotary, this donation is such a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank.”


The Wheels for Wheels Challenge is led by Rotarians John Danner, Roger Grogman, and John Henshaw. The 2023 Challenge is underway and will culminate with a November 4 celebration.


All islanders are invited to visit the bank’s Sanibel or Captiva office to learn more about the “We Love Our Islands” program and how you and your favorite charity can become our next lucky winners.


Bank of the Islands is located at 1699 Periwinkle Way, at the corner of Casa Ybel Road, on Sanibel. The Captiva office is at 14812 Captiva Drive, next to the Captiva Post Office. As the oldest locally owned and managed community bank on Sanibel and Captiva, Bank of the Islands is proud to be the winner of more than 50 “Best of the Islands” awards over two decades.
