At the age of 17, Pat O’Keefe began her career as a teller at Associated Bank in Green Bay.
By the end of her career, she had risen to the role of vice president and director of human resources. Throughout her life, Pat was a devoted mother, employee and community volunteer serving on the Women’s Fund advisory board and several other nonprofit organizations. When Pat lost her battle to cancer in late 2017, Associated Bank chose to sustain her legacy of supporting women’s causes by creating the Women of Legacy Fund.
Through a $40,000 initial donation, the Associated Bank Women of Legacy Fund recognizes the work Pat and many Associated Bank colleagues have dedicated toward helping women succeed. The establishment of this fund allows any company or individual the opportunity to make a gift in honor or memory of the women leaders who have inspired them. Simply note Associated Bank Women of Legacy Fund in the Memorial field when making your online donation.
If there is someone special that you or your company would like to honor with a legacy fund, please contact the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation at (920) 432-0800.
