Vic Kops Humanitarian Award
The Vic Kops Humanitarian Award is named for Dr. Victor Kops, a psychologist and longtime civic leader known for his caring and advocacy for the poor and homeless. Each year, it recognizes outstanding volunteerism and community service.
We are sponsoring this award because – in the tradition of leaders like Vic Kops – we value volunteerism. At U.S. Bank, our employees invest their hands, hearts and minds to give back to their local communities. We are proud of our employee volunteers who donated over 334,000 hours of service to nonprofit organizations since the start of 2019, including virtual volunteering during to the pandemic. We have an ambitious goal of 100% employee engagement in our communities, and we encourage employee volunteerism by providing regular opportunities for involvement and paid time off for eligible employees. We call this time “U.S. Bank Volunteer Day” and all U.S. based employees earn 16 hours of paid time off each year to volunteer.
Our mission is to provide employees with the opportunity to say: “I gave back to my community in a meaningful way.”
