Local Community Commitment
We believe that when the community prospers, the bank will prosper. As a community bank, we view it as our responsibility to give back to the communities we serve. We do this with both the time our employees volunteer, more than 11,680 hours in 2017, and the monetary contributions we make. We look closely at each request we receive to see how the people we serve will benefit. Throughout our organization in 2017, for example, Merchants Bank fulfilled 652 requests for charitable donations from nearly 600 organizations with total charitable donations of $584,000, or 2.74% of Merchants Bank’s pre-tax income.
