Part of the Community
It is a philosophy created and established by our founder in 1955. It has been our way of doing business since day one, and it continues to thrive everyday we open our doors. People – and their lives – are our focus. We treat all with the highest level of fairness and with respect. From our employees to our customers, we treat people as we would want to be treated, appreciating who they are and what they have accomplished.
How We Connect With Our Community
Throughout 65+ years of operation, Security Finance has been an active contributor to the many communities in which we are located. From hiring locally to sourcing local purchases, we keep the community connected in more ways than one. And despite today’s prevalence of online applications and conveniences, Security Finance maintains that we are also a part of “Main Street.” Our brick-and-mortar locations provide a place where personal service and community interaction are still important, and handling financial woes becomes a little bit easier.
How We Give Back
Security Finance’s founder, Jesse L. Bridges, supported various local charities over the years — and his philosophy of philanthropy was continued after his death. Our fundamental belief in giving back to our communities is deeply incorporated into the company’s mission and values.
In 1995, Security Finance’s Lending Hand Foundation was formed as a long-term strategy for our company’s charitable giving. Two primary recipients of our ongoing contributions are the Children’s Miracle Network and the American Red Cross — each an organization with a presence that has helped both our customers and our employees in times of need.
In addition to contributions made through Security Finance’s Lending Hand Foundation, donations of business equipment are also made frequently to various charities. Our corporate-office personnel enthusiastically challenge each other and contribute both their time and money to support charities such as the March of Dimes, Mobile Meals, various local food banks and educational institutions.
Here at Security Finance, we like to say “You Make the Difference” — and we think our well trained and committed team does just that. Helping the people within a community with their financial needs, spending our own payroll dollars locally and contributing to the success of our foundation is how Security Finance makes the difference.
