A community bank is different. It isn’t just a matter of size (although that is usually part of it). It is also much more than marketing spin about caring about customers and charitable giving. Real community banking is based on a social contract that defines how we act. We understand our role in the communities we serve. We know that fulfilling our role not only helps us thrive, it helps our customers and our communities thrive as well.
When you open a deposit account with us, that allows us to fund loans to local businesses – and your money stays right here, at work in your community. When the local businesses we finance thrive and grow, that means more employment within our communities, which means more money in our communities to be spent at local establishments. When those businesses do business with us, those dollars then turn back into deposits with us, and the sustainable banking cycle begins again.
