Making a difference in our community is why we exist. Although our primary focus remains providing financial services designed to benefit our members at an unparalleled level of service, community support and financial education is also important to who we are and what we do. 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.
