Giving Back

Giving Back - Looking Forward

For over 75 years, we have made it a priority to give back to our community, and this shines brightly in everything that we do. From donating to local schools, giving back to charities and volunteering our time, we display our dedication to building future growth and prosperity.

Our friendly bank stands by being good neighbors and always placing community needs before our very own. This is because we believe that true success comes when we first help others succeed!

For our 2021 Giving Back - Looking Forward we will be awarding over $60,000.00 to non-profit, schools or community minded organizations in need of some help. 

2021 Giving Back - Looking Forward Grant

Applications are open from May - August 15, 2021.
