Building a legacy.

Bravera customers Matt and Sandy of Bismarck, N.D., had a dream of establishing a business to support a successful working environment for their son, Cristian, who has Down Syndrome. The couple, along with their three kids landed in the middle of books and coffee with the opening of The Gifted Bean in 2014.

"Bravera Bank has been with us every step of the way, from opening day to today and everything in between. The Bravera team guided us through the tough times of the pandemic with promptness, professionalism and kindness. We couldn’t ask for more."

Bravera is a proud partner of The Gifted Bean, helping them to continue to grow their dream into a reality, providing them with the financing to make it all happen
