Martin Rowe is the President and CEO of First Eldorado Bancshares. He and his family live in Harrisburg. He is involved with several charitable and civic organizations. Rowe states “I really like the flexibility and ease of use of our community foundation can offer. Individual donors get the benefit of making tax deductible contribution to an accredited 501(c)3 with as large or small of a contribution they are comfortable with, while at the same time having flexibility to support the charitable causes that are near and dear to them.”
