2021 continued to provide obstacles throughout our daily lives, but in addition to doing our part to help you achieve financial well-being, being an active, engaged member of our community is also of the utmost importance. There are countless worthwhile local organizations also striving to make a difference right here in our community. We are proud to support the Illinois Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) and have our annual notice posted here.

We are also privileged to partner and sponsor a variety of local events and organizations within this amazing community we call home! Along with our corporate efforts, our Employee Enhancement Committee* (EEC) selects charities to which employees can donate time, money, or supplies.
