Zions Bank, one of the few companies that's old enough to have celebrated Utah's first birthday, will donate $100,000 to the Utah centennial.
In its commitment, as an official sponsor of the Utah Statehood Centennial, Zions Bank is dividing its $100,000 contribution among the 29 counties to be used for local centennial projects. The amount each county receives is based on the proportion of Zions Bank deposits for individuals, businesses and municipalities in each county during 1995.On Monday Harris Simmons, Zions Bank president and chief executive officer, will hand over a check completing a donation of more than $42,000 to the Salt Lake County Centennial Commission.
Of this donation to Salt Lake County $16,000 was previously contributed toward the production of the official centennial video and approximately $5,000 will go toward the development of This Is the Place State Park. While more than $21,000 will be contributed to the Salt Lake County Centennial Committee to be used for local projects.
