Someone tries to act like they don't care about these fees, even "proud to donate" but it sure sounds like it's a sore subject.

a donation is a sum of money that one has and gives of it through ones own free will to another. Nwsb did not have to give it, it was good that they did. I pay the YMCA every month plus additional for programming, I do not pat myself on the back for their charitable works. If you are paying fees, it is because you use a service, that is all. Anything else is a stretch of the imagination.

Banks made $32 "B" illion in overdraft fees in 2012. I will rest my case with that note. Keep seeing the water in the glass guys.

LOL! I don't know I guess the headline should read.

"People who make it to adulthood and still don't know how to balance their checking accounts make donation to Youngsville."

Serious how far do you take your thought process?

If NWSB employees give money to a cause is that also not considered a donation? Because the company they work for and pays them generates a very small portion of their revenue through late and overdraft fees?

I am happy for you happy, who said it was anyone's fault? I am happy to be such a major part of our donation. That is the only point i was making. Since you have never paid any fee for 32$ in your life. I guess i got my stake in this than you so i will be much happier enjoying it than you. You like many others see the glass half full or half empty. I am a realist. I see the glass. It's NOT a donation.

So, Pirate, you can't balance your checkbook and that is someone else's fault? Northwest has helped a lot of Warren County groups and pays lots of property taxes. I've never had to pay a $32 fee for anything from them. They are a blessing to this area. Good for them.

You do know why they allow you to keep using money that is not ours right? I am not being negative. I am happy to contribute 200%-500% interest to make my community better for the children.I was just making the point that it really was not a donation.

So you use money from the bank that is not yours, you get hit with a fee and then turn this positive donation into a negative. Nice.

Northwest did not donate anything. People who have trouble balancing their books and getting popped $32 per transaction donated this. Yes, i am a contributor to this donation. Look on the bright side, they could have put bronze front doors on their building with it instead. Maybe next year?
